Abstract:

Arterial hypertension is the leading cause of death worldwide and is one of the most important public health problems. Arterial hypertension is a major cardiovascular risk factor with an increasing incidence. In this paper we set out to analyze a group of 3050 patients hospitalized between January 2013 and December 2017 in terms of drug therapy. We found that the majority of patients received drug treatment with a converting-enzyme inhibitor as a monotherapy, and the most common drug association was the association between conversion enzyme inhibitor and calcium channel blocker.
