Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Poststroke hypertension is a common complication of acute cerebral ischemia (ACI) occurring in up to 80% of acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients.(1) Despite its high prevalence, the optimal management of arterial hypertension during the acute stroke stage has not been established and remains an issue of long-lasting debate and little consensus.(1) Notably, the findings of numerous observational studies that have evaluated the association of acute blood pressure (BP) values with early stroke outcomes are contradictory and the available but underpowered randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have yielded inconsistent results.(2,3).
