The importance of variability in blood pressure after acute stroke
The Stroke Association has completed 15,000 blood pressure checks with Royal Mail employees.
This study will show whether more intensive lowering of blood pressure (BP) in survivors of intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is feasible, safe and effective in reducing brain injury. If successful, the study will pave the way for the design a larger definitive trial.
Published in the journal, PLOS ONE, a new study sheds light on how feasible it is to conduct a large trial of intensive blood pressure lowering, and cholesterol lowering treatment after stroke, to see if these prevent patients developing memory and thinking problems (cognitve impairment). In some cases, cognitive impairment can progress and lead to dementia after stroke.
Does intensive blood pressure and cholesterol lowering prevent loss of cognition after stroke?
