Network meta-analysis combines direct and indirect evidence to better define risk or benefit. OBJECTIVE To summarize the available clinical trial evidence concerning the safety and efficacy of various antihypertensive therapies used as first-line agents and evaluated in terms of major cardiovascular disease end points and all-cause mortality… Expand
