is an elevated d dimer related to high blood pressure?

Not really: D dimer is a marker of clotting. Blood clots in the legs and lungs are associated with elevation. It will also go up with injuries and surgery. Blood pressure may go up as a complication of a blood clot in the lungs or because of the injury or surgery, but elevated BP should not cause increase in d dimer, or vice versa.
