The results of numerous epidemiological studies indicate that arterial hypertension (AH) is a major risk factor for stroke. The degree of increase in blood pressure (BP) determines the severity of the stroke and the development of its fatal complications. According to various studies, 95% of patients who died from stroke, suffered from arterial hypertension. Given the importance of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system in the development of stroke, angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin receptor II antagonists are drugs of choice in the treatment of stroke patients.
