English term or phrase:hypotensive stroke subjects
In the protocol, a more restrictive clinical criterion was adopted to exclude hypotensive stroke subjects who could potentially have their risk increased by a lower BP.
Je me demande si "hypotensive" concerne l'AVC ou les sujets
It does happen - see hemodynamic stroke or global ischemic stroke - but it's pretty rare. On the other hand, hypotension is not unusual after a stroke, and I'm pretty sure that's what they are talking about here. In any case, your translation could be equally ambiguous.
