The pilot phase of the Intensive Blood Pressure Reduction in Acute Cerebral Haemorrhage Trial (INTERACT) showed that rapid blood pressure (BP) lowering can attenuate hematoma growth in acute intracerebral hemorrhage. We sought to define the systolic BP level associated with greatest attenuation of hematoma growth. INTERACT included 404 patients with… CONTINUE READING
