The most important modifiable risk factor for all-cause morbidity and death worldwide is systemic arterial hypertension, which is linked to an elevated risk of Cardiovascular Disease (CVD). Hypertension is caused by a complex interaction of environmental and pathophysiological variables affecting many systems, as well as a genetic predisposition. Accurate standardized Blood Pressure (BP) measurement, assessment of patients' predicted risk of atherosclerotic CVD, evidence of target organ damage, detection of secondary causes of hypertension, and presence of comorbidities, such as CVD and kidney disease, are all part of the evaluation of patients with hypertension.
