Abstract

Hypertension plays a significant role in the development of atrial fibrillation (AF) and its complications. The coexistence of the two diseases increases the risk of thromboembolism events. Although CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores have been used in the evaluation of the thromboembolism events in AF patients, the different levels of the blood pressure are not appropriately recognized. In this study, the 970 AF patients were divided into three groups according to the severity of hypertension. The CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores in the patients of grade 3 hypertension were significantly higher than those of the patients with grade 1 and 2 hypertension, respectively (P < 0.05). Both the CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores were positively related to the severity of hypertension (P < 0.001). Our data demonstrated that three grades for hypertensive subjects with AF significantly improved antithrombotic risk stratification in addition to current clinical risk stratification models, such as CHADS2 and CHA2DS2-VASc scores.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 27 July 2017.
All research outputs
#6,823,808
of 11,527,700 outputs
Outputs from Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research
#130
of 235 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#137,555
of 269,148 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Journal of Cardiovascular Translational Research
#7
of 10 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 11,527,700 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 40th percentile – i.e., 40% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 235 research outputs from this source. They typically receive a little more attention than average, with a mean Attention Score of 6.0. This one is in the 43rd percentile – i.e., 43% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 269,148 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 48th percentile – i.e., 48% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 10 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than 3 of them.
