Management of Perioperative Target Blood Pressure in Bridging Therapy for Acute Ischemic Stroke


Abstract: Objective: To investigate the management of perioperative target blood pressure in the treatment of acute ischemic stroke with intravenous thrombolytic bridging. Methods: Retrospective analysis of the blood pressure management and nursing experience of 36 patients with acute ischemic stroke who received endovascular treatment with bridge mode from November 2017 to January 2019 in our hospital. Through correct monitoring of basic blood pressure, rapid and stable blood pressure reduction before the bridge treatment, close cooperation during the operation, and close observation and treatment of postoperative blood pressure fluctuations, the patient’s blood pressure can be controlled within the target range. Results: The blood vessels of 36 patients were partially or completely recanalized after treatment. Clinical outcomes: Two cases died. After 90 days, 29 patients with good clinical outcomes were followed up, and 5 patients with poor clinical prognosis. Conclusion: Effective blood pressure management is a necessary measure in the perioperative period of bridging therapy for patients with acute ischemic stroke, which can reduce the postoperative complications of patients treated with bridging therapy, obtain good therapeutic effect and improve the prognosis of patients.
