  • 2. Background and Purpose
    • Smoking and increased levels of blood pressure (BP) substantially increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVD).
    • If these two risk factors have a synergistic impact on cardiovascular events, lowering BP and quitting smoking will contribute more to reducing CVD than would be expected from ignoring their interaction.
  • 3. Methods
    • A total of 41 cohorts involving 563,144 participants (82% Asians; 35% female) were included in the analysis with a mean age of 47 years .
    • H azards ratios (HR s ) and 95% confidence intervals (CI s ) for an increase in systolic blood pressure ( SBP ) were estimated by smoking status (non-smokers and current smokers) , using Cox proportional hazards regression models .
  • 4. Results
    • There was a log-linear relationship between SBP and all subtypes of CVD.
    • The HRs relating SBP to both CHD and ischemic stroke were broadly similar irrespective of smoking status.
    • The HRs relating SBP to hemorrhagic stroke (intracerebral hemorrhage) were greater in current smokers than in non-smokers.

  • 7. Conclusions
    • Smoking exacerbated the impact of SBP on the risk of hemorrhagic stroke.
    • Although quitting smoking and lowering BP are both crucial for prevention of CVD, combining the two could be expected to have extra beneficial effect on preventing hemorrhagic stroke.
