Traduction en anglais : Summary influence of coronary risk score on the management of arterial hypertension in a south western French region.
WHO management plan for mild hypertension recommends to take into account total cardiovascular risk in the decision treatment making process.
However, despite a lower coronary risk in women than in men, hypertension awareness, treatment and control were higher in women than in men.
This study was designed to evaluate the relationships between sex, coronary risk awareness and treatment of hypertension in Haute-Garonne a south western French region.
1 160 subjects aged 35-64,600 men, were recruited between 1994 and 1996 by the Toulouse MONICA center.
Subjects were selected by stratified randomization on age and size of home area.
For each patient a score of coronary risk based on Framingham equation was calculated.
157 treated hypertensives (HT), 73 men and 84 women (G1) whom 046 adequately treated were identified, 16 men and 30 women. 60 known but untreated HT, 38 men and 22 women (G2), 171 newly diagnosed HT, 115 men and 53 women (G3).
In men, the coronary risk score was higher in treated hypertensives compared with G2 and G3 (G1 : 19. 19±5.77 vs G2 : 16.71±6.12 vs G3 : 17.42±5.65) while no significant difference was observed in BP between these three groups (G1 : 150.73±18.6/88.57±10.81 vs G2 : 151.97±10.59/89.73±8.04 vs G3 : 146.68±12.14/90.05±9.19) were observed between these three groups.
