Reducing the risk of left ventricular hypertrophy in kidney transplant recipients: the potential role of mammalian target of rapamycin.

  author={Ernesto Paoletti and G. Cannella},
  journal={Transplantation proceedings},
  volume={41 6 Suppl},
Persistence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) following renal transplantation is associated with unfavorable outcomes in renal transplant recipients. This review presents clinical data on LVH after renal transplantation and the role of antihypertensive therapy, especially ACE inhibitors, to reduce left ventricular mass, as well as the effects of interactions between antihypertensive medications acting on the renin-angiotensin system and immunosuppressive agents to regress LVH among renal… CONTINUE READING
