The stroke register SIECV SITS-Brazil is a database for documentation and immediate statistical evaluation of the management of stroke in the country, available online at a secure internet website. The registry came to Brazil through the Ibero-American Society of Cerebrovascular Diseases (SIECV) to register patients from 20 countries of Latin America as an integrated part of SITS International (www.sitsinternational.org), a global academic collaboration to assist the development of stroke management. The SITS International (Safe Implementation of Treatments in Stroke) is the world"s largest registry of thrombolysis (currently over 30,000 registered patients) and in 2008 opened to include all patients with stroke.
The registry is hospital-based and open to stroke centers and should include all patients treated at the hospital. Statistical reports are updated daily and include the general results of the country, region (Latin America) and around the world to stimulate the center to compare their results with the entire international community and to encouraging the improvement of of quality of care in the stroke acute phase. If your hospital is interested in participating, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
