Effect of Pretreatment Blood Pressure on Outcomes in Thrombolysed Acute Ischemic Stroke Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis


Blood pressure (BP) is an important determinant of functional outcome in acute ischemic stroke (AIS) patients treated with intravenous tissue plasminogen activator (IV-tPA). Current guidelines recommend a BP target of 185/110 mmHg before IV-tPA bolus and maintaining it at less than 180/105 mmHg for the first 24 hours. However, the effect of blood pressure on various outcome measures after systemic thrombolysis remains unclear.
