BACKGROUND The prevalence and clinical significance of isolated office (or white coat) hypertension is controversial, and population data are limited. We studied the prevalence of this condition and its association with echocardiographic left ventricular mass in the general population of the PAMELA (Pressione Arteriose Monitorate E Loro Associazioni) Study. METHODS AND RESULTS The study involved a large, randomized sample (n=3200) representative of the Monza (Milan) population, 25 to 74 years… CONTINUE READING
