Comparison of quinapril versus atenolol: effects on blood pressure and cardiac mass after renal transplantation.

PMID:  11009288     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Based on epidemiologic facts on elevated cardiovascular mortality in renal allograft recipients, an echocardiographic 2-year follow-up in hypertensive renal allograft recipients was conducted. This study provides evidence that, in contrast to atenolol, quinapril, independent of blood pressure reduction, reduces left ventricular hypertrophy and improves left ventricular diastolic function in this population.
