Blood pressure parameters associated with poor outcomes after endovascular thrombectomy

Takeaway

  • Higher mean systolic blood pressure (SBP) and systolic successive variation (SSV) were associated with poorer outcomes 3 months after endovascular thrombectomy (EVT) for acute ischemic stroke (AIS) in patients with successful reperfusion.

Why this matters

  • Data on effects of BP parameters on stroke outcomes following EVT are limited.
