Key clinical point: The lower the blood pressure peaks and variability in the first 24 hours after ischemic stroke reperfusion, the better the outcomes.
Major finding: Every 10–mm Hg increase in blood pressure variability increased the risk of dying in the hospital, whether it was systolic (33%; P = 0.002), diastolic (33%; P = 0.03), or mean arterial pressure variability (58%; P = 0.02).
Study details: Single-center review of 140 reperfusion patients.
Disclosures: The was no external funding, and the lead investigator didn’t have an relevant disclosures.
