he objective of this study (follow-up of 26 113 people) was to investigate differences in the risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and all-cause mortality among hypertensive people according to the control of systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP). People with a history of coronary heart disease, heart failure, cancer or incomplete data at baseline (n=1113) were excluded from the study. The participants were classified into six groups according to their blood pressure status. In conclusion, our results strengthen the evidence that uncontrolled SBP alone and uncontrolled DBP alone are risk factors of all-cause and CVD mortality.
