Abstract
Blood pressure is abnormally elevated in acute stroke in most patients. This blood pressure increase is usually transient and associated with a poor prognosis. Lowering blood pressure too importantly during this period may worsen the outcome of the patient. Antihypertensive therapy is therefore required only when blood pressure is severely increased, especially in the presence of intracerebral haemorrhage. Initiating treatment before admission to the hospital is not recommended. The medications to be preferred are the blockers of the renin-angiotensin system, the beta-blocker labetalol (which possesses also alpha-blocking properties) and NO donors.
