A pilot study was performed in hypertensive patients (a) to investigate the duration of blood pressure reduction produced by the new beta blocker bisoprolol (10 mg o.d.) after cessation of a 4 week treatment using non-invasive 24 hour ambulatory blood pressure measurements, (b) to study the effects of the drug on large arteries using non-invasive brachio-radial pulse wave velocity and aortic abdominal diameter measurements 3 hours after the last dose of a 4 week treatment. In comparison with… CONTINUE READING
