Out of the total population enrolled in HYVET, however, only 56 men and women were age 90 years or older.


Allowing for all fractures, regardless of whether they were incident, validated fractures or not, resulted in an adjusted HR of 0.

Again, differences were seen for all-cause mortality 47 deaths; HR 0. However, at the time of the final intention-to-treat analysis in Octoberthis significant reduction in the primary outcome measure failed to show statistical significance — the reasons for which have never been elaborated.

Whilst each additional GDS point at baseline also increased these risks, the study was not designed to evaluate this association. Starting dosage for bendroflumethiazide and lisinopril is 2. However there was a non-significant rise in all cause mortality RHR 1.

The primary endpoint of HYVET was any fatal or nonfatal stroke, with secondary endpoints including all-cause mortality, cardiovascular mortality, cardiac death, and death from stroke. There were also significant reductions in rates of other secondary outcomes including fatal stroke, HF, and CV events. In looking at the presence or absence of previous cardiovascular disease, hhvet men and women out of the entire HYVET population had any prior CVD.

Early trials in the field of hypertension focused on adults in their fifties and sixties.
