Abstract


 

The RENATA study updated the information about the prevalence, awareness and treatment of HT in seven cities in Argentina. Thirty three percent of the population evaluated has HT and this condition is more common in men. The high percentage of patients unaware of having HT and of patients with uncontrolled HT despite of treatment emphasizes the importance of this Registry and reinforces the need of designing specific strategies contributing to improve high BP control in our country.
