Determinants of medium-term blood pressure variability and the related risks of stroke and dementia
Visit-to-visit variability in blood pressure (BP) increases stroke risk, independent of mean BP. However, its physiological validity, the ideal method of measurement and the mechanisms increasing cardiovascular risk are unclear.
In meta-analyses of individual patient data, I pooled associations between BP variability and risk of stroke, all cardiovascular events and death. I then determined antihypertensive drug-class differences in cardiovascular risk, intra-individual (I-VR) and i...Expand abstract
