Abstract: Up to a few years ago, there was much disagreement about the advisability of treating the elderly hypertensive. A number of trials have demonstrated that the benefits of therapy outweigh the risks. The rationale of therapy is to reduce the number of strokes and coronary events which are two to three times as common in the hypertensive as in the normotensive.
