Hypertension as a risk factor for cardiac events : epidemiologic results of long-term studies.
The management of hypertension and associated risk factors for the prevention of long-term cardiac complications. Satellite symposium. Madrid (ESP), 1992/06/14.
Hypertension is a major contributor to cardiovascular disease, which imparts a threefold increased risk over that of normotensive persons the same age.
It accelerates atherogenesis-promoting premature coronary disease, now its most common sequela.
The effect of elevated blood pressure on cardiovascular disease morbidity and mortality in general and on coronary disease incidence in particular is independent of the influence of other predisposing atherogenic cofactors but is greatly affected by them.
Elevated blood pressure is more often than usual associated with hyperlipidemia, hyperglycemia, hyperuricemia, excessive weight, elevated fibrinogen, and electrocardiogram (ECG) abnormalities, which enhance its impact.
