In brief: 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.
