Hypertension Subtype and Cardiovascular Mortality: Kaplan-Meier Curves of the Cumulative Incidence of CVD Mortality by Sex
Sex-specific cumulative incidence rate of cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality for each hypertension subtype is shown. The definition of each color line is as follows: periwinkle, systolic diastolic hypertension (systolic blood pressure [SBP] ≥140 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure [DBP] ≥90 mm Hg); gold, isolated diastolic hypertension (SBP <140 mm Hg and DBP ≥90 mm Hg); violet, isolated systolic hypertension (SBP ≥140 mm Hg and DBP <90 mm Hg); green, high-normal blood pressure (BP) (SBP 130 to 139 mm Hg and DBP 85 to 89 mm Hg, SBP 130 to 139 mm Hg and DBP <85 mm Hg, or SBP <130 mm Hg and DBP 85 to 89 mm Hg); salmon, optimal-normal BP (SBP <130 mm Hg and DBP <85 mm Hg). The log-rank was used to calculate p values. IDH = isolated diastolic hypertension; ISH = isolated systolic hypertension; SDH = systolic diastolic hypertension.
