Does the 2023 ESH guideline support the use of ARB´
Does the 2023 ESH guideline support the use of ARB´s 1st line in hypertensive patients with stable coronary artery disease?
The New 2023 ESH Guidelines are straightforward; antihypertensive treatments are recommended to prevent CAD effectively. ACE has been shown to reduce CV outcomes in high CV-risk patients, including patients with CAD in RCTs, which supports their use in CAD as part of the antihypertensive combination therapy unlike ARB´s 2. ACE inhibitors were deemed more effective in decreasing the incidence of myocardial infarction, cardiovascular death, and all-cause mortality in patients with hypertension and diabetes. Combining with a BB improves prognosis and should be prescribed unless contraindicated.
