Are hypertensive and arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease the same thing?

Are hypertensive and arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease the same thing?

Subset of other: The overall process of atherothrombotic cardiovascular disease involves the disease processes in the walls of the blood vessels that cause blockages affecting the dependent organs. If high blood pressure is the dominant cause of the disease (often coronary, kidney, or brain), then it may be termed hypertensive cardiovascular disease. ...Read more
