Studio Italiano Sugli Effetti CARDIOvascolari del Controllo della Pressione Arteriosa SIStolica - Cardio-Sis


Current Joint National Committee-7 guidelines recommend that blood pressure (BP) be reduced to a goal of 140/90 mm Hg or lower in nondiabetic patients with hypertension. The Cardio-Sis trial sought to evaluate whether tighter control (systolic goal <130 mm Hg) would be associated with a clinical benefit in these patients.
