abstract

  • Classification of hypertension severity by blood pressure level has similar, although limited, effectiveness at a lower cost than the WHO criteria in identifying patients with adverse cardiac changes and an impaired long-term prognosis. Echocardiographic measurement of left ventricular mass index was more successful than other classifications in predicting subsequent morbid events.
