Mortality Rate Of Tuberculosis
High premature birth: Approximately 2/3 of infants dying within 12 months of birth die within a month from birth (neonatal death). 30-40% of neonatal deaths are directly related with prematurity/low birth weight and complications thereof.
Mycobacterium tuberculosis is an infectious organism that spreads by droplets coughed out by an infected person. Infection is established initially in lungs, but can spread within lungs & to other body parts, or can become latent, with reactivation occurring years to decades later. With effective treatment, it can be completely eliminated although drug resistant ...Read more
About 40% die: Morbidity rates are higher but I do not know the exact percentages, because the frequency of asymptomatic cases is not well studied.
15% with treatment: The death rate from plague is about 50% without treatment. In the United States, with treatment, the death rate drops to about 15%. Most cases are bubonic plague. For pneumonic plague, the death rate is 100% without treatment. Pneumonic plague is a bad infection and is considered fatal if treatment is not started within 24 hours.See 1 more doctor answer
Many are cured: Lymphoblastic lymphoma (LBL) and Burkitt lymphoma (BL) are both aggressive lymphomas with a rapid rate of cell division. For patients who are able to receive intensive chemotherapy regimens and rituximab antibody, recent trials have reported sustained disease-free survival in 60-90% of patients.
Yes: Mortality from hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (hie) has improved in recent years due to a variety of medical interventions, including having a skilled pediatric attendant at delivery, early recognition of hie and prompt stabilization, intensive care neonatology, and most recently hypothermia therapy. Overall, mortality rates for hie are around 20-25%.See 1 more doctor answer
Significant: Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the usa, and the most common cause of long-term disability. Rate of death is highly dependent on size, location, and duration of decreased blood flow, and too many variables to be specific, as each case varies.
It's very rare, but: Does happen. If ones platelet count fall to low enough, spontaneous bleeding can occur. Head bleeds, for example, can be both spontaneous and life-threatening. That being said, the plts that a person with itp does have tend to be more thrombofenic because they are "younger". This helps to mitigate the consequences of low PLT count. Your dr. Can give you additional info. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Depends!: It's going to depend on your surgeon's expertise, the hospital you choose, your disease state, your current anatomy, your surgical history, other major health issues (like kidney, heart, lung or liver disease), the medications you take (eg immunosuppressants). In general, I would imagine death to be less than 1 in a 100. You should consult with an expert: http://www. Fascrs. Org/.See 1 more doctor answer
0 to 4 %: But many institutions report mortality of 0% to < 0.6 %. It seems that hospital programs with excellent results, write articles about the good results, yet places with not so good results, don't write up their results.
Good risk: Acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL) is characterized by the presence of "promyelocytes" in the blood and bone marrow. They have a very distinctive appearance. APL arises from very specific gene mutations that puts the disease in a good risk category. This means that the most patients can be put into remission and cured of the disease, using retinoic acid, arsenic trioxide, and chemotherapy.
Very low: In young, healthy patients undergoing routine surgery, the mortality rate from general anesthesia is exceedingly rare.

Goes up with age: Numbers are approximate: (all comers) <1980: 20 % mortality 1990: (with thrombolysis):10-15% 2000: (with pci):5-10% 2010: (with drug eluting stents):2-5% the sooner one arrives, the lower the mortality. Age, lung, kidney and cerebrovascular disease increase mortality. Age is a factor but not as much as the above.
Why is there still a decently high 5 year mortality rate asscociated with meningioma even it fully removed? I don't quite understand
