How Low should the Blood Pressure be reduced in Patients with Hypertension and High Risk for Coronary Artery Disease?

The more aggressive control of blood pressure among patients at high risk for coronary artery disease such as those with coronary artery disease, a 10-year Framingham risk score ≥10%, diabetes mellitus, chronic kidney disease, or other coronary artery risk equivalent with maintenance of the blood pressure below 130/80 mm Hg and below 120/80 mm Hg in patients with left ventricular dysfunction recommended by the American Heart Association (AHA) Task Force scientific statement in 2007 was based upon expert medical opinion at that time, not on prospective, randomized, adequately controlled trial data. The Pravastatin or Atorvastatin Evaluation and Infection Therapy Thrombolysis in Myocardial Infarction (PROVE IT-TIMI) 22 trial enrolled 4,162 patients with an acute coronary syndrome (acute myocardial infarction with or without ST-segment elevation or high-risk unstable angina pectoris).The lowest incidence of cardiovascular events occurred with a systolic blood pressure between 130 to 140 mm Hg and a diastolic blood pressure between 80 to 90 mm Hg with a nadir of 136/85 mm.
