OBJECTIVES This controlled trial assessed the effect of continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) on blood pressure (BP) in patients with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) and resistant hypertension (RH). METHODS We evaluated 96 patients with resistant hypertension, defined as clinic BP at least 140/90 mmHg despite treatment with at least three drugs at(More)
Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is common in patients with resistant hypertension, but understanding of the pathogenic mechanisms linking both conditions is limited. This study assessed the prevalence of OSA and the relationships between OSA and 24-h blood pressure (BP) in 62 consecutive patients with resistant hypertension, defined as clinic BP values ≥(More)
The high incidence of arteriosclerotic disease in patients with chronic renal failure seems to be due to certain peculiarities in their lipid metabolism. These are principally a disorder in the transportation of lipoproteins and a concomitant defect in triglyceride metabolism causing an accumulation of triglyceride-rich-lipoproteins which predispose to(More)
