Abstract

Hypertension is the most prevalent cardiovascular risk factor worldwide and the leading cause of death and premature morbidity. Despite its prevalence, evaluation and management are nonuniform despite multiple society guidelines worldwide. Guidelines from scientific societies aim to provide standardized recommendations based on the scientific evidence available. In addition, several expert-based recommendations are provided in these documents, a situation that can lead to confusion. The scope of this manuscript is to briefly compare the recent updated guidelines for the management of arterial hypertension from the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association and the European Society of Cardiology/European Society of Hypertension and their relevant differences, which are important to the practicing clinician.
