Administration-Time Differences in Effects of Hypertension Medications on Ambulatory Blood Pressure Regulation
Specific features of the 24-h blood pressure (BP) pattern are linked to progressive injury of target tissues and risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) events. Several studies have consistently shownExpand

Left ventricular hypertrophy and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in chronic renal failure.
BACKGROUND Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is both common and an important predictor of risk of death in end-stage renal failure (ESRF). In mild to moderate chronic renal failure (CRF), the timingExpand
