Both hypertension and coronary artery disease are common in the geriatric population, and a variety of pathogenetic links exist between the two disorders. In the elderly patient, coronary artery disease is often asymptomatic and more difficult to recognize clinically. Antihypertensive therapy has been shown to reduce morbidity and mortality from coronary artery disease in the elderly to some extent. A more specific and individualized approach is more likely to increase these therapeutic benefits.
