    Patients with cardiac conduction system diseases (CSD) may have increased incidence and mortality of cardiovascular events. Here we report a post hoc analysis of the Strategy of Blood Pressure Intervention in the Elderly Hypertensive Patients (STEP) randomized clinical trial ( number, NCT03015311) concerning the effect of intensive blood pressure (BP) control on the incidence of new-onset CSD and the prognostic implications of preexisting or new-onset CSD. The incidence of new-onset CSD was similar in the intensive (n = 205, 6.42%) and standard (n = 188, 5.94%) treatment arms. Participants with preexisting CSD had a higher risk for acute decompensated heart failure. Increased age, male sex and increased body mass index were independently associated with increased risk for new-onset CSD. Our results suggest that intensive BP control may not reduce the incidence of new-onset CSD compared with standard BP control. © 2024.
