Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

BACKGROUND: Since the publication of the 2015 Taiwan Stroke Society Blood Pressure for Treatment and Prevention of Stroke Guideline (2015 TSS BP Guideline), several new clinical studies have addressed whether a stricter blood pressure (BP) target would be effective for stroke prevention. METHODS: TSS guideline consensus group provides recommendations on BP targets for stroke prevention based on updated evidences. RESULTS: The present guideline covers five topics: (1) diagnosis of hypertension; (2) BP control and primary prevention of ischemic stroke; (3) BP control and secondary prevention of ischemic stroke; (4) BP control and secondary prevention of large artery atherosclerosis ischemic stroke; and (5) BP control and secondary prevention of small vessel occlusion ischemic stroke. CONCLUSION: The BP target for most stroke patients with hypertension is <130/80 mm Hg.
