Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the epidemiology of sporadic ruptured cerebral aneurysm in the Chinese population. We retrospectively analyzed the medical records of 264 consecutive Chinese patients admitted to the Affiliated Hospital of Zunyi Medical University of Guizhou Province in Southwest China between December 2012 and March 2015 for spontaneous subarachnoid hemorrhage due to a ruptured cerebral artery aneurysm. The study population comprised 171 females and 93 males with a median age of 50 (range 5-76) years. The female to male ratio was 1.84:1. For both males and females, aneurysm rupture was most common in the 40-49-year age group (34.5%). Most of the ruptured aneurysms were in the size range of 2-5 mm (47.2%), followed by 5-10 mm (43.8%). Ruptured aneurysms occurred most often in the posterior communicating artery (36.6%) or the anterior communicating artery (25.7%). There were more cases of anterior communicating artery aneurysm on the left side (53 [Left side]/16 [Right side]=3.31, P>0.001) and slightly more cases of posterior communicating artery aneurysm on the right side (54 [Right side]/44[Left side]=1.23, P<0.05). This study provides valuable information on the epidemiology of ruptured cerebral aneurysm in the Chinese population.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 03 July 2015.
All research outputs
#7,224,510
of 12,517,383 outputs
Outputs from Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
#1,047
of 2,120 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#104,258
of 233,575 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Neuropsychiatric Disease and Treatment
#69
of 101 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,517,383 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,120 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 5.6. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 233,575 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 52% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 101 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 14th percentile – i.e., 14% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
