Limited evidence is available about the relationship between ambulatory heart rate (HR) and target organ damage (TOD) in uncomplicated hypertension. We sought to investigate the association between ambulatory HR and subclinical cardiac, vascular and renal markers of TOD in never-treated essential hypertensives. A total of 580 subjects with recently diagnosed (⩽1 year) grade 1 and 2 hypertension, categorized by tertiles of HR levels, assessed by two 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring at 1… CONTINUE READING
