BACKGROUND Few studies have assessed the extent and distribution of the blood-pressure burden worldwide. The aim of this study was to quantify the global burden of disease related to high blood pressure. METHODS Worldwide burden of disease attributable to high blood pressure (> or =115 mm Hg systolic) was estimated for groups according to age (> or =30 years), sex, and World Bank region in the year 2001. Population impact fractions were calculated with data for mean systolic blood pressure… Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Premature deaths attributable to blood pressure in China: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Hypertension and prehypertension were significantly associated with increased all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in China and are the leading preventable risk factor for premature mortality in the Chinese general population. Expand
Global variation in stroke burden and mortality: estimates from monitoring, surveillance, and modelling
TLDR
Current measures of the prevalence of cardiovascular risk factors at the population level poorly predict overall stroke mortality and burden and do not explain the greater burden in low-income countries. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand
Health Status and Predictors of Hypertension, Blood Pressure, and Pulse Rate of Jamaicans During the Covid-19 Pandemic
Introduction Globally, hypertension is a major public health problem due to its high prevalence and the resulting cardiovascular and chronic kidney diseases that it manifests as comorbidity issues inExpand
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. Expand

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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand

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. Expand

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. Expand

TLDR
The three leading contributors to the burden of disease are communicable and perinatal disorders affecting children, and the substantial burdens of neuropsychiatric disorders and injuries are under-recognised. Expand
Age-specific relevance of usual blood pressure to vascular mortality: a meta-analysis of individual data for one million adults in 61 prospective studies
TLDR
Throughout middle and old age, usual blood pressure is strongly and directly related to vascular (and overall) mortality, without any evidence of a threshold down to at least 115/75 mm Hg. Expand
Blood Pressure and Stroke: An Overview of Published Reviews
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. Expand
Blood pressure, stroke, and coronary heart disease Part 1, prolonged differences in blood pressure: prospective observational studies corrected for the regression dilution bias
TLDR
The DBP results suggest that for the large majority of individuals, whether conventionally "hypertensive" or "normotensive", a lower blood pressure should eventually confer a lower risk of vascular disease. Expand
