Extract

To the Editor The recently published PARTAGE study1 raises questions about the optimal management of blood pressure (BP) in frail elderly patients by showing that those with systolic BP less than 130 mm Hg on 2 or more drugs had the highest mortality. The authors acknowledge a limited understanding of the benefits and harms of BP treatment in frail elderly subjects. However, this study raises important issues concerning BP measurement methodology, and these issues should be considered while interpreting the study findings.
