primary hypertension takes up almost half • Cover every form of hypertension at least briefly, providing references for those seeking more information Additional coverage is provided on some topics that have recently assumed importance • Include the latest data, even if available only in abstract form • Provide enough pathophysiology to permit sound clinical judgment • Be objective and clearly identify biases, although my views may differ from those of others I have tried to give reasonable attention to those with whom I disagree Dr Joseph T Flynn, Professor of Pediatrics, Division of Nephrology, Seattle Children’s Hospital, Seattle, Washington has contributed a chapter on hypertension in children and adolescents I have been fortunate in being in an academic setting wherein such endeavors are nurtured and wish to thank all who have been responsible for establishing this environment and all of our colleagues who have helped us through the years Norman M Kaplan, MD Ronald G Victor, MD iv FM.indd iv 8/28/2009 1:23:33 PM C O N T E N T S Dedication iii Preface to the Tenth Edition 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 iv Hypertension in the Population at Large Measurement of Blood Pressure 20 Primary Hypertension: Pathogenesis 42 Primary Hypertension: Natural History and Evaluation 108 Treatment of Hypertension: Why, When, How Far 141 Treatment of Hypertension: Lifestyle Modifications 168 Treatment of Hypertension: Drug Therapy 192 Hypertensive Crises 274 Renal Parenchymal Hypertension 288 Renovascular Hypertension 319 Primary Aldosteronism 339 Pheochromocytoma (with a Preface about Incidental Adrenal Masses) 358 Hypertension Induced by Cortisol or Deoxycorticosterone 378 Other Forms of Identifiable Hypertension 392 Hypertension with Pregnancy and the Pill 410 Hypertension in Childhood and Adolescence 430 Appendix: Patient Information Index 457 455 v FM.indd v 8/28/2009 1:23:33 PM FM.indd vi 8/28/2009 1:23:33 PM CHAPTER Hypertension in the Population at Large ypertension provides both despair and hope: despair because it is quantitatively the largest risk factor for cardiovascular diseases (CVD), it is growing in prevalence, and it is poorly controlled virtually everywhere; and hope because prevention is possible (though rarely achieved) and treatment can effectively control almost all patients, resulting in marked reductions in stroke and heart attack Although most of this book addresses hypertension in the United States and other developed countries, it should be noted that CVDs are the leading cause of death worldwide, more so in the economically developed countries, but also in the developing world As Lawes et al (2008) note: “Overall about 80% of the attributable burden (of hypertension) occurs in lowincome and middle-income economies.” In turn, hypertension is, overall, the major contributor to the risks for CVDs When the total global impact of known risk factors on the overall burden of disease is calculated, 54% of stroke and 47% of ischemic heart disease (IHD) are attributable to hypertension (Lawes et al., 2008) Of all the potentially modifiable risk factors for myocardial infarction in 52 countries, hypertension is exceeded only by smoking (Danaei et al., 2009) The second contributor to our current despair is the growing prevalence of hypertension as seen in the ongoing survey of a representative sample of the U.S population (Cutler et al., 2008; Lloyd-Jones et al., 2009) According to their analysis, the prevalence of hypertension in the United States has increased from 24.4% in 1990 to 28.9% in 2004 This increased prevalence primarily is a consequence of the population becoming older and more obese The striking impact of aging was seen among participants in the Framingham Heart Study: Among H those who remained normotensive at either age 55 or 65 (providing two cohorts) over a 20-year follow-up, hypertension developed in almost 90% of those who were now aged 75 or 85 (Vasan et al., 2002) The impact of aging and the accompanying increased prevalence of hypertension on both stroke and IHD mortality has been clearly portrayed in a meta-analysis of data from almost one million adults in 61 prospective studies by the Prospective Studies Collaboration (Lewington et al., 2002) As seen in Figure 1-1, the absolute risk for IHD mortality was increased at least twofold at every higher decade of age, with similar lines of progression for both systolic and diastolic pressure in every decade At the same time as populations are growing older, obesity has become epidemic in the United States (Hedley et al., 2004) and is rapidly increasing wherever urbanization is occurring (Yusuf et al., 2001) With weight gain, blood pressure (BP) usually increases and the increased prevalence of overweight is likely responsible for the significant increase in the BP of children and adolescents in the United States over the past 12 years (Ostchega et al., 2009) The third contributor to our current despair is the inadequate control of hypertension virtually everywhere According to similar surveys performed in the 1990s, with control defined at the 140/90 mm Hg threshold, control has been achieved in 29% of hypertensives in the United States, 17% in Canada, but in fewer than 10% in five European countries (England, Germany, Italy, Spain, and Sweden) (WolfMaier et al., 2004) Some improvement in the U.S control rate has subsequently been found but the percentage has reached only 45% (Lloyd-Jones et al., 2009) (Table 1-1), whereas better control rates are reported from Canada (Mohan & Campbell, 2008), Cuba (Ordunez-Garcia et al., 2006), Denmark Chap01.indd 8/28/2009 12:47:49 PM Kaplan’s Clinical Hypertension FIGURE 1-1 Ischemic heart disease (IHD) mortality rate in each decade of age plotted for the usual systolic (left) and diastolic (right) BPs at the start of that decade Data from almost one million adults in 61 prospective studies (Modified from Lewington S, Clarke R, Qizilbash N, et al Age-specific relevance of usual blood pressure to vascular mortality: A metaanalysis of individual data for one million adults in 61 prospective studies Lancet 2002;360:1903–1913.) (Kronborg et al., 2009), and England (Falaschetti et al., 2009) As expected, even lower rates of control have been reported from less developed countries such as China (Dorjgochoo et al., 2009) Moreover, in the United States, control rates among the most commonly afflicted, the elderly, are significantly TABLE 1.1 lower: only 29% of women 70 to 79 years of age are controlled (Lloyd-Jones et al., 2009) Furthermore, the relatively lower control rates among Hispanics and African Americans compared to whites remain unchanged (McWilliams et al., 2009) And of even greater concern, even when hypertensives are treated Trends in Awareness, Treatment, and Control of High Blood Pressure in U.S Adults (Over Age 20) 1976–2004 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (%) Awareness

Association statistics committee and stroke statistics subcommittee Circulation 2009;119:e21–e181 Chap01.indd 8/28/2009 12:47:49 PM Chapter • Hypertension in the Population at Large down to an optimal level, below 120/80 mm Hg, they continue to suffer a greater risk of stroke than normotensives with similar optimal BP levels (Asayama et al., 2009) Despite all of these problems, there is hope, starting with impressive evidence of decreased mortality from CVDs, at least in the United States (Parikh et al., 2009) and England (Unal et al., 2004) However, as well as can be ascertained, control of hypertension has played only a relatively small role in the decreased mortality from coronary disease in the United States (Ford et al., 2007) Nonetheless, there is also hope relative to hypertension Primary prevention has been found to be possible (Whelton et al., 2002) but continues to be rarely achieved (Kotseva et al., 2009) Moreover, the rising number of the obese seriously questions the ability to implement the necessary lifestyle changes in today’s world of faster foods and slower physical activity Therefore, controlled trials of primary prevention of hypertension using antihypertensive drugs have begun (Julius et al., 2006) On the other hand, the ability to provide protection against stroke and heart attack by antihypertensive therapy in those who have hypertension has been overwhelmingly documented (Blood Pressure Trialists, 2008) There is no longer any argument as to the benefits of lowering BP, though uncertainty persists as to the most cost-effective way to achieve the lower BP Meanwhile, the unraveling of the human genome has given rise to the hope that gene manipulation or transfer can prevent hypertension As of now, that hope seems extremely unlikely beyond the very small number of patients with monogenetic defects that have been discovered All in all, hope about hypertension seems overshadowed by despair However, health care providers must, by nature, be optimistic, and there is an inherent value in considering the despairs about hypertension to be a challenge rather than an acceptance of defeat As portrayed by Nolte and McKee (2008), the most realistic way to measure the health of nations is to analyze the mortality that is amenable to health care By this criterion, the United States ranks 19th among the 19 developed countries analyzed This sobering fact can be looked upon as a failure of the vastly wasteful, disorganized U.S health care system We prefer to look upon this poor rating as a challenge: current health care is inadequate, including, obviously, the management of hypertension, but the potential to improve has never been greater (Shih et al., 2008) Chap01.indd 3 This book summarizes and analyses the works of thousands of clinicians and investigators worldwide who have advanced our knowledge about the mechanisms behind hypertension and who have provided increasingly effective therapies for its control Despite their continued efforts, however, hypertension will almost certainly not ever be conquered totally, because it is one of those diseases that, in the words of a Lancet editorialist (Anonymous, 1993): …afflict us from middle age onwards [that] might simply represent “unfavorable” genes that have accumulated to express themselves in the second half of our lives This could never be corrected by any evolutionary pressure, since such pressures act only on the first half of our lives: once we have reproduced, it does not greatly matter that we grow “sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.” In this chapter, the overall problems of hypertension for the population at large are considered We define the disease, quantify its prevalence and consequences, classify its types, and describe the current status of detection and control In the remainder of the book, these generalities will be amplified into practical ways to evaluate and treat hypertension in its various presentations CONCEPTUAL DEFINITION OF HYPERTENSION Although it has been more than 100 years since Mahomed clearly differentiated hypertension from Bright’s renal disease, authorities still debate the level of BP that is considered abnormal (Task Force, 2007) Sir George Pickering challenged the wisdom of that debate and decried the search for an arbitrary dividing line between normal and high BP In 1972, he restated his argument: “There is no dividing line The relationship between arterial pressure and mortality is quantitative; the higher the pressure, the worse the prognosis.” He viewed arterial pressure “as a quantity and the consequence numerically related to the size of that quantity” (Pickering, 1972) However, as Pickering realized, physicians feel more secure when dealing with precise criteria, even if the criteria are basically arbitrary To consider a BP of 138/88 mm Hg as normal and one of 140/90 mm Hg as high is obviously arbitrary, but medical practice requires that some criteria be used to determine the need for workup and therapy The criteria should be established on some rational basis that includes the 8/28/2009 12:47:50 PM Kaplan’s Clinical Hypertension risks of disability and death associated with various levels of BP as well as the ability to reduce those risks by lowering the BP As stated by Rose (1980): “The operational definition of hypertension is the level at which the benefits… of action exceed those of inaction.” Even this definition should be broadened, because action (i.e., making the diagnosis of hypertension at any level of BP) involves risks and costs as well as benefits, and inaction may provide benefits These are summarized in Table 1-2 Therefore, the conceptual definition of hypertension should be that level of BP at which the benefits (minus the risks and costs) of action exceed the risks and costs (minus the benefits) of inaction Most elements of this conceptual definition are fairly obvious, although some, such as interference with lifestyle and risks from biochemical side effects of therapy, may not be Let us turn first to the major consequence of inaction, the increased incidence of premature CVD, because that is the prime, if not the sole, basis for determining the level of BP that is considered abnormal and is called hypertension Risks of Inaction: Increased Risk of CVD The risks of elevated BP have been determined from large-scale epidemiologic surveys The Prospective Studies Collaboration (Lewington et al., 2002) obtained data on each of 958,074 participants in 61 prospective observational studies of BP and mortality Over a mean time of 12 years, there were TABLE 1.2 11,960 deaths attributed to stroke, 32,283 attributed to IHD, 10,092 attributed to other vascular causes, and 60,797 attributed to nonvascular causes Mortality during each decade of age at death was related to the estimated usual BP at the start of that decade The relation between usual systolic and diastolic BP and the absolute risk for IHD mortality is shown in Figure 1-1 From ages 40 to 89, each increase of 20 mm Hg systolic BP or 10 mm Hg diastolic BP is associated with a twofold increase in mortality rates from IHD and more than a twofold increase in stroke mortality These proportional differences in vascular mortality are about half as great in the 80 to 89 decade as it is in the 40 to 49 decade, but the annual absolute increases in risk are considerably greater in the elderly As is evident from the straight lines in Figure 1-1, there is no evidence of a threshold wherein BP is not directly related to risk down to as low as 115/75 mm Hg As the authors conclude: “Not only the present analyses confirm that there is a continuous relationship with risk throughout the normal range of usual blood pressure, but they demonstrate that within this range the usual blood pressure is even more strongly related to vascular mortality than had previously been supposed.” They conclude that a 10 mm Hg higher than usual systolic BP or mm Hg higher than usual diastolic BP would, in the long term, be associated with about a 40% higher risk of death from stroke and about a 30% higher risk of death from IHD These data clearly incriminate levels of BP below the level usually considered as indicative of Factors Involved in the Conceptual Definition of Hypertension Action Benefits Risks and Costs Action Reduce risk of CVD, debility, and death Assume psychological burdens of “the hypertensive patient” Interfere with QOL Require changes in lifestyle Add risks and side effects from therapy Add monetary costs of health care Decrease monetary costs of catastrophic events Inaction Preserve “nonpatient” role Maintain current lifestyle and QOL Avoid risks and side effects of therapy Increase risk of CVD, debility, and death Increase monetary costs of catastrophic events Avoid monetary costs of health care Chap01.indd 8/28/2009 12:47:51 PM A P P E N D IX Patient Information WHAT IS HYPERTENSION? CAN HYPERTENSION BE CURED? For most people, a blood pressure above 140/90 is considered as hypertension The upper number, the systolic pressure, is the highest pressure in the arteries when the heart beats and fills the arteries The lower number, the diastolic pressure, is the lowest pressure in the arteries when the heart relaxes between beats As part of aging, blood vessels usually become stiff or rigid, so that they are less able to dilate when blood enters from the heart Therefore, the systolic pressure usually increases with age Not usually Some people who lose considerable excess weight, reduce a high intake of sodium (or alcohol), and relieve stress may have a return of elevated blood pressure to a normal level WHAT CAUSES HYPERTENSION? In most patients, no specific cause for hypertension can be found In about 10%, a specific cause can be found and often relieved by either medical or surgical treatment The term used for the usual type of hypertension has been “essential,” but “primary” is preferable These factors are involved: • Hereditary • Obesity • High sodium intake • Psychological stress In addition, a number of other factors sometimes play a role, including • Excessive alcohol drinking (more than two to three portions a day) • Smoking • Sleep apnea • Herbal remedies • Diet pills and other stimulants, such as ephedra • Physical inactivity WHAT ARE THE CONSEQUENCES OF HYPERTENSION? By placing a burden on the heart and blood vessels, hypertension in concert with other risk factors induces heart attacks, heart failure, strokes, and kidney damage The other important cardiovascular risk factors are • Smoking • Abnormal blood lipids (an elevated LDL cholesterol or a low HDL cholesterol) • Diabetes HOW IS HYPERTENSION TREATED? Treatment should always include an improvement in all the unhealthy lifestyle habits, including • Stopping smoking • Losing excess weight • Increasing physical activity • Reducing sodium intake (easiest accomplished by reading labels on processed foods and avoiding any with more than 300 mg of sodium per portion) • Drinking no more than a healthy quantity of alcohol • One drink per day for women, two for men (The portions are 12 oz of beer, oz of wine, and 1.5 oz of whiskey.) 455 Appendix.indd 455 8/28/2009 3:47:31 PM 456 Appendix: Patient Information Antihypertensive drugs are usually needed These include three major types: • Diuretics, which remove some of the excess sodium and fluid from the circulation • b-Blockers, which decrease the rate and strength of heart contraction • Vasodilators, which open blood vessels • This group includes angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors, angiotensin blockers, and calcium channel blockers All of these may cause side effects, and your physician should be contacted if you feel unwell after starting one or more drugs The action of most drugs can be reduced by weight gain, excessive sodium or alcohol, and certain drugs such as nonsteroid anti-inflammatories (ibuprofen, naprosyn, celebrex, etc.) Inform your physician about all over-the-counter or prescription drugs you take Take your pills every day at the same time, usually soon after awakening HOW TO ENSURE GOOD CONTROL OF HYPERTENSION In the past, only occasional readings in the physician’s office were used to determine the degree of hypertension Increasingly, home measurements with a battery-operated, semiautomatic device are being used to ensure adequate but not excessive treatment With such a device, costing $40 to $100, you can monitor your blood pressure, particularly when changes in the type or doses of medications are made GUIDELINES FOR HOME BLOOD PRESSURE MONITORING Equipment The device should be checked against the mercury manometer in the physician’s office to ensure its Appendix.indd 456 accuracy The cuff should be large enough to encircle the upper arm For most adults, a “large adult cuff ” should be used If the device comes with a smaller cuff, a larger one can be substituted Procedure Do not smoke or drink coffee for 30 minutes before taking the reading Sit with the back and arm supported, the arm at the level of the heart (middle of the chest) After to minutes of quiet sitting, take two readings, a minute apart If the two readings differ by more than 10 mm (points), take additional readings each minute until they are within 10 mm Hg Record the readings in this manner: Date Time First Second Reading Reading Circumstances May May May 7 a.m p.m a.m 150/95 135/85 110/70 145/90 130/80 105/60 Before breakfast After exercise Dizzy after standing If the readings are being taken to diagnose hypertension, as many as possible, four or five a day, should be taken for a few weeks If the readings are being taken to monitor treatment, two or three readings one day a week may be adequate Take a reading if you feel unwell, such as being dizzy or light-headed or having a bad headache You usually cannot tell when your pressure is rising, but the pressure can rise if you are anxious The readings may vary as much as 40 mm Hg from one time to another They rarely remain the same Take your diary with you on your next appointment More information can be obtained from the American Heart Association by phone, at (800) 2428721, or on the web at http://www.americanheart.org 8/28/2009 3:47:31 PM IN D E X Note: Page
