Prevalence and predictors of white-coat hypertension in a large database of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring
AbstractThe objective of this study was to determine both the prevalence of white-coat effect and white-coat hypertension [WCH] and which selected clinical variables were predictors of WCH. A total of 2462 patients underwent ambulatory blood pressure monitoring either in borderline hypertension [group 1] or for assessment of antihypertensive treatment [group 2] or for hypotension [group 3]. In the overall population 33.0% of patients showed WCH, 32.8% in group 1 and 37.0% in group 2. In multivariate analysis, sex and grade of hypertension were independent predictors of WCH in groups 1 and 2

Risk of hypertension in Yozgat province, central Anatolia: application of framingham hypertension prediction risk score Kilic, M.; Ede, H.; Kilic, A.I. (2016-04)The aim of this cross-sectional study was to estimate the risk of hypertension in 1106 Caucasian individuals aged 20-69 years in Yozgat Province, using the Framingham Hypertension Risk Prediction Score [FHRPS]. According to FHRPS, average risk of developing hypertension over 4 years was 6.2%. The participants were classified into low- [<5%], moderate- [5% to 10%] and high- [>10%] risk groups. The percentage of participants that fell into these groups was 59.4%, 19.8% and 20.8% respectively. The proportion of participants in the high-risk group ...
