Abstract

This is the protocol for a review and there is no abstract. The objectives are as follows:

The first objective is to investigate whether blood-pressure-lowering drug treatment is effective for the prevention of stroke, major vascular events, and dementia in patients with a history of stroke or TIAs, regardless of baseline blood pressure level. The second objective is to identify specific subgroups of patients in which secondary prevention with blood-pressure-lowering drug treatment is effective.
