Description
We analyzed the need for dental intervention in patients with acute cerebral vascular disorders. In this study, we enrolled 43 individuals in SCU (male: 28, female: 15) in need of oral health management. The mean age of the patients was 68.0 ± 14.9. They had been diagnosed as cerebral infarction, cerebral hemorrhage, subarachnoid hemorrhage, or transient ischemic attack. Thirteen subjects were affected with pneumonia and could not handle self-care management. Furthermore, 10 subjects had poor oral hygiene. There were clearly more pneumonia patients in the intubation group compared to the non-intubation group. In addition, 18 cases (41.9%) needed dental treatment, and 5 cases received dental treatment. Patients with acute stroke had poor oral hygiene with disturbance of consciousness and paralysis, suggesting a possible cause of pneumonia in these patients. Half of patients required dental intervention, indicating that oral management may be necessary for stroke patients to prevent the occurrence of pneumonia.
