Exercise hypertension, an exaggerated systolic blood pressure response to exercise, is a common finding in routine exercise testing, but its clinical implications are not clear. Among 594 consecutive adult patients undergoing both exercise testing and coronary angiography within 90 days, those with exercise hypertension were less likely to have severe angiographically documented coronary artery disease and had a substantially lower two-year all-cause mortality rate.
