Why is this important?

Hypertensive heart disease refers to coronary artery disease, heart failure, and enlargement of the heart due to high blood pressure. Hypertension increases the pressure in blood vessels, causing the heart to work harder to work against this pressure. Hypertension is the most common risk factor for heart disease and stroke. Hypertension contributes to atherosclerosis, the thickening of blood vessel walls, and the underlying disease process of the major forms of cardiovascular disease. Hypertension is associated with behavioral risk factors including poor diet, physical inactivity, tobacco use, diabetes, overweight, and obesity.
