Sufficient evidence exists to implicate hypertension as a potent independent risk factor for the development of atherosclerosis. Whereas certain biochemical pathways may play some role in the genesis of atherosclerosis in patients with hypertension, the blood pressure level alone may accelerate the atherosclerotic process. This article discusses the link between hypertension, atherosclerosis, and antihypertensive therapy.
