The pathogenesis of essential hypertension is a heterogeneous process and several systems are involved in the changes of cardiovascular hemodynamics.

Although pulse pressure (PP), the difference between SBP and DBP in mmHg, has been used to characterize CV risk in hypertension, it does not yet contribute to the definition of the hypertensive status. Prehypertension is now considered to be a CV risk factor (3). It is defined as an SBP between 120 and 139 mmHg systolic and a DBP of 80–89 mmHg. These subjects are at very high risk to develop arterial hypertension. 3. EPIDEMIOLOGY OF HYPERTENSION Hypertension is considered to be the most common reversible or treatable CV risk factor.
