Aim. To study antihypertensive and organo-protective effects of a calcium antagonist (CA), controlled-release (CR) nifedipine, in patients over 60 years with Stage I-II isolated systolic and systolo-diastolic arterial hypertension (ISAH, SDAH).Material and methods. This 24-week open prospective study included 48 patients aged over 60 years with Stage I-II AH. SDAH and ISAH participants received nifedipine SR in the dose of 40 mg/d. Treatment effectiveness was assessed by dynamics of office blood pressure (BP) and 24-hour BP monitoring (BBP) parameters. Organoprotective effect was assessed by dynamics of echocardiography parameters and microalbuminuria (MAU) leve...
