Extract

A 78 -year-old man presented to his personal physician for a yearly examination. He was totally asymptomatic. Findings of a physical examination performed 1 year previously were normal, and an ECG displayed normal sinus rhythm (NSR) and minor nonspecific T-wave changes. Five years previously, he was found to have mild systemic hypertension and was administered combined hydochlorothiazide (25 mg) and triamterene (37.5 mg) daily with satisfactory control of the BP throughout this time period.
