BACKGROUND Individuals with systolic-diastolic hypertension (SDH, systolic blood pressure (SBP) >160 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) >90 mm Hg) are at increased risk of thrombotic complications, such as stroke and heart attacks, which may be related to a hypercoagulable state. Individuals with only isolated systolic hypertension (ISH; i.e. SBP >160 mm Hg but DBP <90 mm Hg) are also at significant cardiovascular risk. We hypothesized that patients with ISH would exhibit a prothrombotic… CONTINUE READING
