C. H. Ng et al. (Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine, National University of Singapore, Singapore) aimed to examine the impact of HTN on survival outcomes in a longitudinal cohort of NAFLD patients in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) from 1999 to 2018.

A multivariate analysis with confounders demonstrated that hypertensive NAFLD had a significantly increased risk of all-cause mortality and cardiovascular disease mortality. Despite this significant burden, the lack of adequate HTN control significantly increases the mortality risk.
