This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

Pulse pressure, that is systolic minus diastolic blood pressure, accurately predicts long-term coronary heart disease risk in healthy subjects, say French researchers. People with pulse pressure over 65mmHg are almost three times more likely to die of CHD than those with pulse pressures under 45. The finding of Inserm, the national scientific and medical research institute, emerged from a 20-year follow-up of 20,000 Frenchmen, to be published in the December issue of Hypertension (Vol 30).
