Abstract

Evidence on the association of nondipping pattern with carotid atherosclerosis is scarce. We performed a meta-analysis in order to provide comprehensive information on subclinical carotid alterations in nondipping as compared with dipping individuals. A computerized search was performed using PubMed, OVID, EMBASE and Cochrane library databases from 1 January 1990 up to 31 March 2015. Full articles providing data on carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) and plaque in nondipping and dipping individuals, as assessed by ultrasonography, were analyzed. A total of 2753 adult individuals (1003 nondipping and 1750 dipping) included in 13 studies were considered. Common carotid IMT was higher in nondipping than in dipping individuals [807±36μm vs. 746±28μm, standard means difference, SMD: 0.37±0.09, confidence interval (CI): 0.19-0.56, P
