L’hypertension artérielle diastolique (HTAD) isolée, définie par une élévation de la pression artérielle diastolique (PAD) > 90 mmHg et d’une pression artérielle systolique (PAS) < 140 mmHg est une entité parfois rencontrée en pratique médicale. Bien que dans la population âgée, le risque cardiovasculaire attribué à l’HTA soit le mieux corrélé à la PAS et à la pression pulsée (PP), il est aujourd’hui évident que l’HTAD isolée est également associée à un risque d’événement cardiovasculaire…

Isolated diastolic hypertension, pulse pressure, and mean arterial pressure as predictors of mortality during a follow-up of up to 32 years

These results demonstrate the often neglected role of SBP in predicting long-term CVD risk in middle-aged men and Administrative guidelines, which affect population health, should also take due note ofSBP.

Hemodynamic patterns of age-related changes in blood pressure. The Framingham Heart Study.

The late fall in DBP after age 60 years, associated with a continual rise in SBP, cannot be explained by "burned out" diastolic hypertension or by "selective survivorship" but is consistent with increased large artery stiffness.

Predictors of New-Onset Diastolic and Systolic Hypertension: The Framingham Heart Study

Given the propensity for increased baseline BMI and weight gain to predict new-onset IDH and the high probability of IDH to transition to SDH, it is likely that IDH is not a benign condition.

Effects of treatment on morbidity in hypertension. Results in patients with diastolic blood pressures averaging 115 through 129 mm Hg.

Male patients with diastolic blood pressures averaging 115 mm Hg or above represent a high-risk group in which antihypertensive therapy exerts a significant beneficial effect.

Hypertension Subtype and Risk of Cardiovascular Disease in Chinese Adults

All hypertension subtypes are associated with significantly increased risk of cardiovascular disease in Chinese adults, and primary prevention of hypertension should be a public health priority in the Chinese population.

Effects of blood pressure lowering on outcome incidence in hypertension: 2. Effects at different baseline and achieved blood pressure levels – overview and meta-analyses of randomized trials

Meta-analyses favor BP-lowering treatment even in grade 1 hypertension at low-to-moderate risk, and lowering SBP/DBP to less than 140/90 mmHg appears safe, but only adds further reduction in stroke.

Blood pressure and mortality among men with prior myocardial infarction. Multiple Risk Factor Intervention Trial Research Group.

In this large cohort of men with prior MI, the association of SBP and DBP with CHD and all-cause mortality varied over the 16-year follow-up period, with a substantial excess mortality risk in this cohort associated with high blood pressure.

Systolic versus diastolic blood pressure and risk of coronary heart disease. The Framingham study.

The current practice of assessing the importance of blood pressure at all ages largely on the basis of diastolic pressure and the commonly held view concerning the innocuous nature of an elevated level of systolic pressure in the elderly requires reevaluation.
