Abstract

Aim. To study the antihypertensive and hypolipidemic effect of therapy based on perindopril, including its combinations, and rosuvastatin in real clinical practice.

Material and methods. Analysis of the medical records of patients observed for hypertension (HT) and treated with perindopril, amlodipine and rosuvastatin in the multicenter nonintervention SYNERGY study was performed. Patients with established diagnosis of HT and registered elevated cholesterol blood level were included into the study. The drugs were prescribed by doctors in different doses. Data on the disease history, physical status, blood pressure (BP) measurements, and lipid blood levels were taken from the patient's medical records.

Results. 1736 patients (53% of women) with the mean age of 58.7 years were included into the analysis. 1322 patients (76.2%) previously received antihypertensive therapy, and 807 (46.5%) – lipid-lowering therapy. Reduction in systolic and diastolic BP, low density cholesterol blood level was found at the end of the study in all study groups s (p<0.05). This demonstrated an adequate antihypertensive and lipid-lowering effect of the applied treatment regimens. The average decrease in systolic BP was from 20.5 to 41.4 mm Hg, and this in diastolic BP – from 8.8 to 22.2 mm Hg. The maximum reduction in systolic BP was found in the group of perindopril 8 mg+amlodipine 10 mg+rosuvastatin 5 mg (41.4 mm Hg), and this in diastolic BP – in the group of perindopril 8 mg+rosuvastatin 10 mg. The mean decrease in low density cholesterol blood level was from 0.74 mmol/L in the group of perindopril 4 mg+amlodipine 10 mg+rosuvastatin 5 mg up to 1.75 mmol/l in the group of perindopril 8 mg+amlodipine 10 mg+rosuvastatin 20 mg

Conclusion: Therapy with perindopril, amlodipine and rosuvastatin resulted in significant reduction in BP and low-density cholesterol blood level in all the treatment groups. The study of the efficacy of combined therapy in patients with HT and dyslipidemia in real clinical practice makes it possible to evaluate the potential contribution of pharmacotherapy in reducing the risk of cardiovascular complications.
