Hypertension accelerates progression of renal failure in children and adults. For 2 years, Wingen and coworkers [33] followed almost 200 children and adolescents with renal disease, aged 2 to 18 years. Here, renal survival is defined as stability of the creatinine clearance rate. Compared with patients with systolic blood pressures lower than 120 mm Hg, those with systolic blood pressures higher than 120 mm Hg had more rapid development of renal death. Renal death was defined as a decrease in the creatinine clearance rate by 10 mL/min/1.73 m2.
