Previous studies have shown that white-coat and masked uncontrolled hypertension (WUCH and MUCH, respectively) are clinical conditions with very poor reproducibility over time.

Abstract

Previous studies have shown that white-coat and masked uncontrolled hypertension (WUCH and MUCH, respectively) are clinical conditions with very poor reproducibility over time. This is also the case for the different nighttime blood pressure (BP) patterns (dipping, nondipping, reverse dipping or extreme dipping). Whether and to what extent the phenomenon might depend on the type of antihypertensive treatment is unknown. In the present study, we addressed this issue by analyzing the data collected in the Plaque Hypertension Lipid-Lowering Italian Study (PHYLLIS), in which office and ambulatory BP were measured three times during an almost 3-year treatment period. The results showed that a limited number of WUCH or MUCH patients at an initial office measurement and 24-h systolic (S) BP measurement maintained the same status at a second set of measurements one or more years later. This was also the case for all dipping patterns, and only a minimal number of patients exhibited the same phenotype throughout all on-treatment SBP measurements. The results were similar for treatment with a thiazide diuretic or an ACE inhibitor and are in line with those of the European Lacidipine Study on Atherosclerosis (ELSA) trial, i.e., the only other available trial with multiple on-treatment office and ambulatory BP measurements, in which patients were treated with a calcium channel blocker or a beta-blocker. All the BP patterns identified in hypertensive patients treated by joint office and ambulatory BP measurements display poor reproducibility, and this is unrelated to the type of antihypertensive treatment used.
