Lowering blood pressure may cut risk of recurrent stroke

02/20/2013

In case you missed it, a trial presented at the International Stroke Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii, found that treating patients with lacunar strokes to a systolic blood pressure target of less than 130 mm Hg was feasible and safe and may have prevented recurrent strokes. There was no significant difference in the annual rate of ischemic stroke, but there was a significant reduction in intracerebral hemorrhage with the lower target.
