Abstract

Stroke is the nosological unit burdened high percentage of early mortality, difficult prognosis for the recovery efficiency. Current recommendations support the place of antihypertensive therapy in the treatment of acute stroke, as first-line indicating labetalol. Nicardipine is the next line drug, in exceptional circumstances, nitroglycerin and sodium nitroprusside. The question of the legitimacy of antihypertensive therapy in the context of early prognosis in patients with stroke raise the CATIS trial results — the findings of a study shows there is no evidence for a beneficial effect of antihypertensive treatment in the acute phase of stroke to reduce early mortality, disability in stroke patients.
