Que cache l'hypertension arterielle masquée? [What is behind masked hypertension?]
Revue Médicale Suisse
In approximately 10% of adults, ambulatory blood pressures recorded during everyday activities or selfmeasured blood pressures are abnormally elevated whereas office blood pressures are in a normal range. This type of blood pressure behavior, known as masked hypertension, is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk. It may be pertinent to search for the presence of masked hypertension in individuals having sometimes elevated, sometimes normal office blood pressures, as well as in very high risk patients and in patients requiring an optimal blood pressure control, such as for instance in those with diabetes or nephropathy.
