BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to compare the effects of long-term antihypertensive treatment on brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (PWV), a marker of systemic arterial stiffness, between angiotensin II receptor blocker valsartan and long-acting calcium channel blocker nifedipine coat-core. METHODS Forty-one patients (54 +/- 3 years of age, 20 men and 21 women) with essential hypertension (155 +/- 3/95 +/- 3 mm Hg) were randomly allocated to the treatment with valsartan (80 mg once… CONTINUE READING
