    Traduction en anglais : Prognostic value of Ambulatory blood pressure measurement in France.

    Rationale : Ambulatory blood pressure measurement (ABPM) is commonly used in clinical practice, whereas its added value to the management of hypertension is not definitely documented.


    The OCTAVE II study was launched in 1991 to explore the prognostic value of ABPM, compared to that of the gold standard, the clinical blood pressure measurement.


    Two hundred and six French cardiologists recruited 3569 participants over 18 years of age, provided they deemed ABPM was useful (mean age of 56 years, 52% of men, 65% already treated by antihypertensive drugs).

    The prognostic value of various blood pressure measurements, systolic or diastolic, clinical or ambulatory (diurnal, nocturnal or during 24 hours), has been assessed in multivariate models adjusted on the baseline characteristics associated with risk.

    The outcome was the occurrence of a major cardiovascular event, including stroke, myocardial infarction and cardiovascular death.


    After an average follow-up of five years, cardiovascular morbidity was known for 85% of the participants, and their vital status for 91%. On the whole population, the best prognostic indicators were systolic blood pressure compared with diastolic, ABPM compared with clinical blood pressure measurement, and nocturnal ABPM compared with diurnal ABPM.

    In the untreated participants at baseline, cardiovascular risk regularly increased among the four groups : normotensives. white-coat hypertensives, dippers, non-dippers. (...)
