Arterial hypertension increases risk of stroke 4 times and is considered to be the main risk factor of this prognosticaly serious disease. The results of randomised clinical trials confirm that consequent treatment of stroke together with influence on stratification of other risk factors can decrease incidence of stroke up to 40 %. Not only risk of other relapse of stroke but also risk of other cardiovascular disease can be decreased by complex attitude to secondary prevention after stroke. The effort of all specialists engaged (general practitioner, internal medicine, neurology, neurosurgery, gerontology, radiology, physiotherapy and others) to interdisciplinary approach in patients care can substantially decrease primary incidence of stroke and their recurrence.
