  1. Comparison of classification of the severity of hypertension by blood pressure level and by World Health Organization criteria in the prediction of concurrent cardiac abnormalities and subsequent complications in essential hypertension.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    To determine whether classification of the severity of hypertension according to the World Health Organization (WHO) system, which utilizes additional clinical and laboratory findings, is superior to classification by blood pressure level alone in predicting prognostically important cardiac structural abnormalities and the risk of subsequent complications in asymptomatic subjects.

    Design

    Two-hundred and twenty adults with uncomplicated essential hypertension underwent baseline clinical evaluation and echocardiography; 88% were subsequently followed for a mean of 11.6 years.

    Setting

    University hospital.
