Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Comparison of the clinical features, especially prognosis, in cerebral infarction was made between nine normotensive subjects and 16 hypertensive patients with an 80% stenosis or occlusion of the intracranial or extracranial arteries. Our own criteria for evaluating hypertension were employed on the basis of the following items: a past history of hypertension, blood pressure levels on admission and during hospitalization, degree of retinopathy, and ECG changes. In 17 of 25 cases, brain circulation was measured by the intravenous RISA technique. Abnormalities of the EEG and reduction of cranial blood flow were greater, and an early prognosis for neurological deficits in the first two months after the onset of stroke was poorer in the hypertensive group than inthe normotensive group. These results are contradictory to the observations of others.
