The HICAP (Hypertension and Heart Failure in Primary Care) study is a cross-sectional, multicentre, epidemiological study conduced in primary care centres in Spain. The results indicate that among hypertensive patients without heart failure (HF), diagnosed renal dysfunction is associated with the risk for developing HF and that the renal function evaluation using the Modification of Diet in Renal Disease Study Group formula could be useful to detect hypertensive patients at high risk of developing HF.
