Black adults younger than 60 years were found to have elevated population-attributable risk for CVD, CHD, HF and stroke associated with hypertension, according to findings published in JAMA Cardiology.
In a multivariable-adjusted analysis, researchers found that among black adults, hypertension conferred a significantly elevated risk for CVD (HR = 1.91; 95% CI, 1.48-2.46), CHD (HR = 2.41; 95% CI, 1.59-3.66), HF (HR = 1.52; 95% CI, 1.01-2.3) and stroke (HR = 2.2; 95% CI, 1.44-3.36). The population-attributable risk (PAR) for these outcomes was significantly higher in black adults younger than 60 years (PAR = 54.6%; 95% CI, 37.2-68.7) compared with those aged 60 years or older (PAR = 32%; 95% CI, 11.9-48.1).
