The relative accuracy of office, home and ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurements has not been established in patients with metabolic syndrome (MS+). We set out to compare BP values obtained using different measurement modalities and their relationship to MS intensity in hypertensive outpatients. Office, ambulatory and home BPs and risk profile were ascertained. MS was defined according to ATPIII criteria. The study included a cohort of 104 men and 132 women with a mean age of 51.8 +/- 14.2 years; 40.3% had metabolic syndrome (MS+). The MS+ patients had higher home SBP (150 vs 142 mmHg, p < 0.01), were treated with more drugs (3.9 vs 3.0, p < 0.001) and had a poorer BP control on home measurements (11.6 vs 24.8%, p = 0.01). However, the clinical BP control rates were overall higher, and did not differ between two groups when daytime ambulatory (34.7 vs 27%) or office (26.7 vs 22.3%) values were employed. The deviation of home measurements was associated in a dose-dependent fashion with intensity of MS. Thus, in MS+ patients, the well standardized measurement protocols and equipment should be used to assess the antihypertensive efficacy. This is especially true for patients with high body mass index.
