The absence of nocturnal fall in blood pressure (BP) is named as nondipper status, which has been shown to be an additional risk factor for the development of left ventricular hypertrophy and cardiovascular events in several high-risk groups. The aim of this study was to determine the influences of the nondipper status and nocturnal blood pressure loads on left ventricular mass index (LVMI) in renal transplant recipients. A total of 35 nondiabetic renal transplant recipients were included into… CONTINUE READING
