Experience in the use of a screening program for detection of arterial hypertension

, : Experience in the use of a screening program for detection of arterial hypertension. Vrachebnoe Delo (9): 63-64

The extent of arterial hypertension [AH] incidence in southern Ukrainian SSR, USSR, was studied for the formation of a group of persons with detected AH, for the differential treatment of AH and the subsequent evaluation of treatment effectiveness. A group of 2262 40-50 yr old randomly selected men residing in Odessa were subjected to a screening test which revealed the presence of AH in 501 persons (22.1%). These persons were subjected to urine analysis, isotope renography, examination of the eye fundus, pulmonary-cardiac tests and other tests. The genealogical history revealed AH was in 1/3 of these persons. Stenocardia, myocardial infarction, stroke, obliterating endarteritis and diabetes mellitus occurred more frequently in patients with AH than in persons with a normal arterial pressure. The screening program revealed extensive distribution of AH and borderline hypertension in Odessa residents. A third was unaware of the disease; 60% were aware but either chose not to be treated or were treated ineffectively. AH was determined to be an important risk factor in the development of stenocardia, myocardial infarction, stroke and other life-endangering and incapacitating diseases.
