  Purpose

The aim of the observational study is to ascertain the degree of blood pressure control in the early-morning hours after 8 weeks of treatment with Telmisartan/Telmisartan+Hydrochlorothiazide and during 44 weeks of follow-up, in patients with hypertension using home blood pressure measurements.

Further study details as provided by Boehringer Ingelheim:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change from baseline in mean early morning systolic blood pressure, mean early morning diastolic blood pressure, and degree of control. (6:00 to 11:59), BP < 135/85 mmHg. (HBPM: mean of morning measurements). [ Time Frame: 217 Weeks ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Clinical control (office BP), response rates, reduction in office cuff systolic and diastolic BP. Office BP control criteria: BP < 140/90 mmHg. Pulse rate, pulse pressure, discontinuations and tolerability. [ Time Frame: 217 Weeks ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with mild to moderate essential hypertension and whose medical condition make them eligible for treatment with Telmisartan/Telmisartan+HCTZ

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Pre-menopausal women who had had no birth control, who are pregnant or nursing
  • Patients with advanced hepatic impairment, advanced renal impairment or both
  • Patients with functional class III or IV (NYHA) congestive heart failure (CHF), unstable angina, acute myocardial infarction, heart surgery or stroke within the previous six months
  • Patients with any valvular disease with hemodynamic repercussion
  • Patients receiving chronic administration of oral anticoagulants or digoxin
  • Patients with known hypersensitivity to any component in the formulation of Micardis / MicardisPlus
  • Patients with previous history of angioedema associated with ACE inhibitors
  • Patients with severe, uncontrolled hypertension or any form of secondary hypertension
  • Patients with any other clinical conditions which, in the opinion of the investigator, would not allow for the safe completion of the protocol
