BACKGROUND Impaired blood pressure (BP) variation, often found in obesity and hypertension, is associated with increased cardiovascular risk. The effect of obesity surgery on BP variation is unknown. We performed this study to investigate the effect of gastric bypass surgery on circadian BP variation in morbidly obese hypertensive subjects. METHODS The study group consisted of eight patients (mean age 35.0 +/- 9.1 years), with impaired circadian BP rhythm. Controls were eight well-matched… CONTINUE READING
