This study aimed to clarify the relationship between blood pressure (BP, mm Hg) measured by patients in the morning at home and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), which is a strong predictor for morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular disease in patients undergoing continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD). We recorded self-measured morning BPs and BPs measured at hospital check-ups (hospital BPs) in 33 patients undergoing CAPD (mean age, 64.0 years) and compared them with left ventricular mass (LVM) derived from echocardiographic examinations. The mean morning BP was 137/75, the mean hospital BP was 140/80, and the mean LVM (g/m(2.7) : corrected by height) was 61.8. Of the subjects, 72.7% had LVH (LVM > 51). The morning BP (systolic) was positively correlated with LVM (P = 0.0022, R = 0.508), and the hospital BP (systolic) was weakly correlated (P = 0.0534, R = 0.339). The adjusted odds ratio for LVH was significantly higher in patients with a morning BP (systolic) ≥ 135 (15.9; 95% CI, 1.3 to 198.5) than in patients with a morning BP (systolic) < 135. In conclusion, morning hypertension determined with self-measured BP was positively correlated with LVH, therefore self BP monitoring could be a useful method to predict LVH in CAPD patients.
