One of the known causes of hypertension is vascular compression on the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM). However, it remains unknown whether RVLM vascular compression causes the significant variability in blood pressure observed during acute ischemic stroke. The purpose of this study was to evaluate differences in blood pressure variability and prognosis in acute ischemic stroke patients based on the presence or absence of RVLM vascular compression. We evaluated 56 patients with acute… CONTINUE READING
