Targeting a systolic blood pressure below 130 mm Hg was associated with a 21% decreased risk of all-cause mortality among patients with stage 3 to 4 chronic kidney disease, a meta-analysis found.
For those on antihypertensive treatment, cognitive decline greater with SBP <130 versus >150 mm Hg
Blood pressure values less than 140/90 mm Hg tied to increased mortality risk for octogenarians
As part of the ongoing safety investigation of potentially carcinogenic impurities detected in angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) medications.
For nondiabetic CKD patients taking statins, targeting an intensive SBP goal of less than 120 mm significantly reduced the risks for all-cause and cardiovascular mortality by 56% and 71%, respectively, study finds.
Lifetime risks are higher under AHA/ACC 2017 HTN threshold than JNC7 threshold for hypertension
At six months, patients who underwent renal denervation used less medication to control BP
Forty-six percent of US adults have hypertension
But drop seen in risk for MCI and combined rate of cognitive impairment, probable dementia
