Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The antihypertensive and echocardiographically assessed hemodynamic effects of indapamide (2.5 mg/day) were evaluated in 10 patients with mild or moderate essential hypertension. Indapamide reduced significantly systolic and diastolic blood pressure while heart rate was not significantly affected by this treatment. The reduction in blood pressure observed in our patients was mainly due to a statistically significant decrease in total peripheral resistance since cardiac output did not change. The results of this study seem to differentiate indapamide from the other diuretic drugs.
