We compared, in a prospective double-blind randomized study, the effect of the angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor quinapril (QUI) with that of triamterene/hydrochlorothiazide (THCT) treatment on cardiovascular end-organ damage in subjects with untreated isolated systolic hypertension (ISH). End-organ damage measurements, performed initially and after 6(More)
A randomized double-blind study lasting 2 months was performed with either 25 mg captopril twice a day or 50 mg atenolol once a day in 125 patients with established diastolic hypertension (diastolic blood pressure greater than 95 mmHg) identified during a population screening programme of subjects aged less than 65 years. Quality of life was assessed from(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine whether ambulatory blood pressure eight weeks after withdrawal of antihypertensive medication is a more sensitive measure than seated blood pressure to predict blood pressure in the long term. DESIGN Patients with previously untreated diastolic hypertension were treated with antihypertensive drugs for one year; these were withdrawn(More)
Echocardiographic determination of left ventricular mass index (LVMI) is shown to be valuable in the assessment of cardiovascular risk. Determination of left ventricular geometry, including concentric remodeling, provides additional prognostic information. In isolated systolic hypertension (ISH), the few echocardiographic studies available show an increased(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate in a prospective, double-blind, placebo-controlled study the effect of long-term (2-year) lisinopril treatment on cardiovascular end-organ damage in patients with previously untreated isolated systolic hypertension (ISH). All patients with ISH were derived from a population screening program. End-organ damage(More)
The aim of the study was to compare the effects of two long-acting antihypertensive agents, the calcium-antagonist amlodipine and the ACE inhibitor lisinopril, on left ventricular mass and diastolic filling in patients with mild to moderate diastolic hypertension from primary care centres. It is a 1-year prospective, double-blind, randomized, parallel(More)
The Groningen Hypertension Service (GHS) has demonstrated that provision of training for volunteers, technical assistance and the services of the General Practitioner Laboratory (a private foundation offering laboratory and diagnostic facilities) have enabled large rural and urban districts to be screened for hypertension within a short period of time at(More)
After an observation period of three months, 83% of new hypertensives (n = 84), identified in a population survey, became normotensive. Those with sustained hypertension (n = 14) were compared with 14 initially hypertensives who became normotensive and 14 normotensives, matched for age and sex, using ambulatory and exercise BP and echocardiography (both(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the effects of two antihypertensive agents, amlodipine and lisinopril, on left ventricular mass and diastolic filling in patients from primary care centers with mild to moderate diastolic hypertension. STUDY DESIGN A second-year, open follow-up of a prospective, double-blind, randomized, parallel group, comparative study. METHODS(More)
