Abstract

In absolute terms, coronary artery disease is the most important consequence of hypertension. The second most common complication is stroke. The benefit of treating hypertension in the elderly is at least as great as in the young. The reason for the apparent inability of antihypertensive therapy to reduce coronary risk is not clear.
