The evaluation of patient profile and treatment approaches are extremely important in the treatment of hypertension. The primary aim of this study is to define the risk groups of hypertensive patients. The secondary aims are to assess the diagnostic tests that are used in the diagnosis and follow-up, to assess the severity of hypertension, target organ damage, associated clinical conditions and the frequency of microalbuminuria, and also to define the concordance of treatment to the guidelines, clinical approaches, and differences of the approaches according to the characteristics of centers, patients and medical doctors, and to establish vascular damage in cases that advanced diagnostic tests are used. In this study, a total of 11,000 patients from 220 centers; 1,000 patients from 20 tertiary centers and 10,000 patients from other 200 centers will be enrolled in this study. Study has been started in December 2003. More than 10,000 patients were enrolled into the study until now. (Türk Kardiyol Dern Arş 2004; 32: 344-349)
