Hypertensive urgencies (HypUrg) are define as severe elevation in blood pressure (BP) without acute target organ damage (TOD). In the office setting, treated asymptomatic patients, with severe BP elevation meeting criteria for urgency are often seen. We evaluate incident CV events (fatal and non-fatal stroke or acute myocardial infarction, TIA, coronary or carotid revascularization, atrial fibrillation (n=311)) during follow-up (FU) in patients with HypUrg at first outpatient visit.

Abstract

Hypertensive urgencies (HypUrg) are define as severe elevation in blood pressure (BP) without acute target organ damage (TOD). In the office setting, treated asymptomatic patients, with severe BP elevation meeting criteria for urgency are often seen. We evaluate incident CV events (fatal and non-fatal stroke or acute myocardial infarction, TIA, coronary or carotid revascularization, atrial fibrillation (n=311)) during follow-up (FU) in patients with HypUrg at first outpatient visit.
