The results below represent the care of 58,417 patients with coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease. Read More About This Measure
There has been important evidence from clinical trials that further supports and broadens the merits of risk-reduction therapies for patients with established coronary and other atherosclerotic vascular disease, including peripheral arterial disease, atherosclerotic aortic disease, and carotid artery disease.

standards of care.
The American College of Cardiology (ACC) and the American Heart Association (AHA) recommends that a blood pressure is measured at every routine visit and that the systolic blood pressure is less than 140 mmHg and the diastolic blood pressure is less than 90 mmHg.
This measure shows the percentage of people 18-75 years of age with a diagnosis of IVD whose most recent blood pressure reading within the measurement period is controlled to a rate of less than 140/90 mmHg.
