Further study details as provided by AstraZeneca:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To evaluate the frequency of evaluation of preclinical target organs damage in hypertensive patients with no known cardiovascular or renal disease, by taking blood pressure (controlled or uncontrolled HT*) into account [ Time Frame: once / 1 Year ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • To describe the patient profile (socio-demographic, risk factors, comorbidities, global CV risk level estimated by the doctor and calculated retrospectively [according to ESH 2007]) associated with screening for target organs damage
  • To describe the modalities of patient follow-up and management
  • To compare the frequency of evaluation of target organs damage as a function of the modalities of management of CV risk factors at the time of the consultation.
