Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The prevalence of cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) among the Druzes in Western Galilee was 0.5% (1967-1968), lower than most reports for western populations. The disease was more frequent in males than females. Hypertension was a high risk factor affecting the prevalence of the disease, but no association was found between CVA and age, weight or smoking. The incidence of CVA was 0.24/1000/year, which is among the lowest reported in the literature.
