Superiority of thiazide or thiazide-like diuretics over ACEi as initial monotherapy in hypertension

Literature - Nov. 12, 2019 - Suchard MA, et al. - The Lancet 2019

A study using data of millions of patients showed that there are no differences in effectiveness between drug classes when initiating monotherapy for hypertension, with the exception of lower risk of MI, HHF and stroke with thiazide or thiazide-like diuretics when compared to ACEi.

Independent association of systolic and diastolic hypertension with CV outcomes

Literature - July 23, 2019 - Flint AC et al. - N Engl J Med 2019
In a large cohort of 1.3 million participants, both systolic and diastolic hypertension were associated with composite of MI, ischemic stroke and hemorrhagic stroke, independent of thresholds defining hypertension.
