We studied the relationship between augmentation index and the diurnal blood pressure profiles. PATIENTS AND METHODS Twenty-four-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was performed in(More)
We examined the relationship between plasma B-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) level and diurnal variability pattern of blood pressure (BP). Twenty-four-hour ambulatory BP monitoring was performed in 98 patients with asymptomatic essential hypertension, and the patients were classified into four groups according to their circadian BP variation profiles:(More)
BACKGROUND High-normal urinary albumin excretion has been reported to have clinical significance with respect to progression of proteinuria and hypertension. OBJECTIVE We analysed the effect of cilnidipine (10 mg/day) on morning systolic blood pressure (SBP) and urine albumin-creatinine ratio (UACR) in 16 non-diabetic hypertensive patients with a normal(More)
We examined the hemodynamic responses to exercise and symptoms in 37 male patients with untreated essential hypertension, and compared the findings with those in 32 age-matched healthy male volunteers by performing a graded symptom-limited exercise test using a bicycle ergometer. The subjective feeling of intensity of exercise was determined using the Borg(More)
