The prevention of some cardio vascular events by means of the multi factorial treatment in hypertensive subjects early results in the rome italy project of coronary heart disease prevention
Hypertensives in the treatment group showed a significant decrease of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, serum cholesterol, the number of cigarettes smoked per day and body mass index; those belonging to the control groups showed only a decrease of the cigarettes smoked per day. Incidence of severe cardiovascular events (fatal and non-fatal myocardial infarction, other coronary deaths, fatal and non-fatal cerebrovascular accidents) was of 13.2% in control hypertensives vs. 5.8% in treatment hypertensives, the difference being statistically significant.
