The long-term effects of selective (atenolol) and nonselective (carteolol) beta-blockers on brachial artery diameter velocity and flow and on vascular resistance (pulsed Doppler) were compared in two groups of 10 hypertensive patients at respective daily doses of 100 and 20 mg. The drugs decreased mean blood pressure (p less than 0.01) with similar… CONTINUE READING
