Most recommendations in guidelines and trial results are based on office BP. In the future, even more results from studies with ambulatory and home BP measurements will be included. New devices and techniques such as renal denervation will be included in standard treatment. As not all patients are alike, more individual treatment strategies will be included, and possible gene analysis will be performed before initiating antihypertensive treatment in the future.
