Altered sympathetic activity and peripheral vascular function are suspected as a mechanism of the development of arterial hypertension in organ transplantation recipients treated with cyclosporine. We assessed whether cyclosporine might alter peripheral vascular properties or autonomic modulation of the sinus node and the vasculature during rest and standing. We examined 17 orthotopic heart transplantation recipients, 8 solid organ transplantation recipients, 17 patients with essential… CONTINUE READING
