Incidence of Moyamoya Disease in Denmark: A Population-Based Register Study.

Summary of "Incidence of Moyamoya Disease in Denmark: A Population-Based Register Study."

In this first population-based study of moyamoya disease (MMD) in Europe, the authors identified 56 patients with MMD in Denmark during the period 1994-2015 using nationwide registers. The overall incidence was 0.047 per 100,000 person-years, which is about one-tenth that reported in Japan. Otherwise the epidemiological features were comparable: there was a bimodal age distribution with peaks in the age groups 0-9 years and 30-39 years, with twice as many females as males.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The total number of cases of a given disease in a specified population at a designated time. It is differentiated from INCIDENCE, which refers to the number of new cases in the population at a given time.

A noninflammatory, progressive occlusion of the intracranial CAROTID ARTERIES and the formation of netlike collateral arteries arising from the CIRCLE OF WILLIS. Cerebral angiogram shows the puff-of-smoke (moyamoya) collaterals at the base of the brain. It is characterized by endothelial HYPERPLASIA and FIBROSIS with thickening of arterial walls. This disease primarily affects children but can also occur in adults.

Ongoing scrutiny of a population (general population, study population, target population, etc.), generally using methods distinguished by their practicability, uniformity, and frequently their rapidity, rather than by complete accuracy.

Monitoring of rate of occurrence of specific conditions to assess the stability or change in health levels of a population. It is also the study of disease rates in a specific cohort, geographic area, population subgroup, etc. to estimate trends in larger population. (From Last, Dictionary of Epidemiology, 2d ed)

A multi- and interdisciplinary field concerned with improving health and achieving equity in health for all people. It transcends national boundaries, promotes cooperation and collaboration within and beyond health science fields, and combines population-based disease prevention with individually-based patient care.
