LINARES-REYES, Edgardo et al. Impact of hypertensive waist in coronary risk and compliance with the LDL cholesterol target in adults of Trujillo. Acta méd. peruana [online]. 2015, vol.32, n.4, pp.202-210. ISSN 1728-5917.

Introduction. Hypertensive waist (HW) have been reported as the first step of screening for metabolic syndrome and coronary risk. ObjeCtive. To determine the Impact of HW in coronary risk and compliance with the LDL cholesterol target in adults of Trujillo, Perú. Patients and MethOd. Descriptive, observational, analytic and prospective study. 552 people, 276 men and 276 women divided in groups of 2039, 4059 and of 6079 years old. Blood pressure, waist, blood glucose and lipid profile were determined. HW was considered if systolic BP ≥ 130mm Hg, PAD ≥ 85mm Hg or hypertension history, waist ≥ 94 cm in men and ≥ 80 cm in women; the coronary risk level and LDL goal according to Adult Treatment Panel III. Results:. 126 HW cases (23.14%), 55 in men (19.92%) and 71 in women (26.44%). In HW men the low level of risk coronary was 27.27% and 39.73% in women, however the high level were 30.91% and 15.07% respectively. In without HW men the low level of risk coronary was 65.16% and 84.65% in women, and the high level 10.41 and 4,95% respectively. The LDL cholesterol goals in HW men was achieved in 56.36% and 31.51% in women, and in people without HW were 87.33% and 72.77% respectively. COnClusiOns: The impact of the presence of hypertensive waist is expressed on having found a major frequency of category of risk moderately high and high and a minor compliance of the LDLC cholesterol goal in the categories of low, moderate and moderately high risk.
