Resumen

FLORENTINO BARRIZONTE, Meneses; MANZO FERNANDEZ, René  y  CORONA MARTINEZ, Luis A. Hipertensión arterial en el anciano: aspectos clinicoepidemiológicos. Rev Cubana Med Gen Integr [online]. 1997, vol.13, n.2, pp.133-138. ISSN 0864-2125.

An investigation was carried out to deepen into the knowledge of the clinical and epidemiological aspects of hypertension in the elderly, for which 162 cases were studied. The prevalence of arterial hypertension was 39.51 % and it predominated in the age group from 65 to 69 years. The most frequent type of hypertension was the systodiastolic (64.06 %), as well as the mild degree (83.33 %). There were no patients with severe degree. The cerebrovascular accident, the ischemic cardiopathy, and the chronic renal failure were more frequent among the hypertensive aged. It is concluded that arterial hypertension is a common disorder in the elderly with a predominance of systodiastolic hypertension and of mild degrees of the disease.
