Abstract

While assessing the cardiovascular risk of hypertensive patients, different types of blood pressure measurements can be regarded as suitable surrogate endpoints. In this context the possible role of clinic, stress, exercise, basal, home and ambulatory blood pressures is briefly discussed. The clinical value of night-time blood pressure, of the clinic-daytime blood pressure difference and of blood pressure variability is also addressed.
