  1. Long-term treatment of both systolic and diastolic hypertension has been shown to reduce the risk if incident heart failure by approximately 50%!
  2. Treatment of hypertension is particular beneficial in older patients. However, elevated blood pressure is a major risk factor for the development of heart failure, a risk that extends across all age ranges.
  3. Elderly patients patients with a history of electrocardiogram evidence of a prior Myocardial Infarction had a >80% risk reduction for incident heart failure with aggressive blood pressure control!
