State of global health – hypertension burden and control
TLDR
The evaluation of an individual attributable risk forms the basis of clinical guidelines for the prevention of cardiovascular diseases worldwide, and a recalibrated Framingham cardiovascular risk prediction equation will provide similar results to the equations developed from Asian cohorts.
Mortality patterns in hypertension
TLDR
Reductions in the burden of BP-related death require the parallel application of the population strategy at community level and the clinical strategy focusing on new and improved treatments for people with hypertension.
Global Burden of Hypertension and Systolic Blood Pressure of at Least 110 to 115 mm Hg, 1990-2015
TLDR
In international surveys, although there is uncertainty in some estimates, the rate of elevatedSBP (≥110-115 and ≥140 mm Hg) increased substantially between 1990 and 2015, and DALYs and deaths associated with elevated SBP also increased.
It is time to contend with the endothelial consequences of prehypertension
TLDR
New scientific findings provide important evidence showing that prehypertension diminishes the inherent properties of the vascular endothelium to protect against thrombotic clots.

TLDR
Despite a recently documented fall in blood pressure levels during the last decade in Europe, it appears very likely that hypertension, as a strong age-dependent risk factor, will remain one of the most crucial cardiovascular risk factors in an ageing world population.
Cardiovascular Risk Assessment and Summary of Guidelines for the Management of Hypertension
TLDR
The rise in hypertension has been attributed to several factors, including the overall aging of the population, the dramatic increase in obesity, and a decrease in physical activity.
Risk of cardiovascular disease according to blood pressure categories in an argentinian cohort.
TLDR
This study quantified relationships between BP and CVD starting from high-normal blood pressure in Argentina and found that in subjects aged ≥55 years a j-curve phenomenon was observed, showing the lowest incidence in the high- normal category.

TLDR
The burden of non-optimal blood pressure is almost double that of the only previous global estimates, which is largely explained by the correction for regression dilution adopted in these analyses.
Blood pressure and cardiovascular disease in the Asia Pacific region
TLDR
Blood pressure was at least as strongly associated with cardiovascular events in Asian populations compared to Australasian populations and considerable potential benefit of blood pressure lowering down to levels of at least 115 mmHg systolic blood pressure is seen.
Blood pressure and the global burden of disease 2000. Part 1: Estimates of blood pressure levels
TLDR
These global estimates of blood pressure by age, sex and subregion show considerable variation in estimated levels, and the lack of data in developing countries is substantial, and this is an important limitation given the role ofBlood pressure in increasing cardiovascular disease levels.
Quantifying risk of death and disability associated with raised blood pressure.
TLDR
Both primary prevention and secondary prevention (through drug treatment and non-pharmacologic approaches) are needed for the development of unfavourable blood pressure patterns in populations.

TLDR
It is likely that there is likely to be considerable benefit with blood pressure lowering below "traditional" hypertension thresholds, especially in those with high absolute risk.

TLDR
The ABD study was the first to use methodology developed for the Global Burden of Disease study to measure the burden of disease and injury in a developed country.

TLDR
The epidemiologically expected benefits of BP lowering for stroke risk reduction are broadly consistent across a range of different population subgroups and initiating and maintaining BP reduction for stroke prevention is a more important issue than choice of initial agent.
