“…In addition, one half of patients with known coronary artery disease who presented to 29 community acute care hospitals with cocaine‐associated myocardial infarctions carried the diagnosis of hypertension 12 . Acute cocaine use has also been associated with the development of renal failure and intracerebral hemorrhage in patients with long‐standing hypertension 14–16 …”

“…12 Acute cocaine use has also been associated with the development of renal failure and intracerebral hemorrhage in patients with long-standing hypertension. [14][15][16] The extreme increases in arterial pressures after cocaine use that we observed in this cohort is likely accountable for the higher incidence of CV emergencies among individuals with hypertension. Cocaine use resulted in an average increase in systolic and diastolic BPs of 74 mm Hg and 30 mm Hg, respectively, with 8 of 10 patients reaching diastolic pressures !110 mm Hg.…”

“…Another potential risk factor for severe hypertension or hypertensive emergency is abuse of vasoactive drugs such as cocaine or methamphetamine. 30,31 Using multivariate analysis, Shea et al demonstrated that illicit drug use among innercity populations is a significant risk factor for the development of hypertensive emergency. 27 In our study, 20% of patients reported the use of cocaine or other illicit drugs during the 72 hours prior to study enrollment.…”
