The risk of stroke is directly related to the degree of hypertension. Multiple trials have shown the benefit of blood pressure control in all age groups and with all degrees of hypertension. There are numerous agents to choose from, and angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors, diuretics, and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) have all been shown to lower the risk of stroke. There may be race/ethnic differences in response to ACE inhibitors, with one study showing higher stroke rates on lisinopril, possibly due to less effective blood-pressure control in African-Americans.
