In 70 kidney transplant recipients, nocturnal blood pressure(BP) nondipping (nondipping or reversed rhythm) was highly frequent (48% were nondippers and 29% had a reversed rhythm). When compared dippers, nondippers and reversed, neither BMI, time on hemodialysis, graft survival, eGFR or antihypertensive drugs allowed to distinct the three groups. Pulse Wave Velocity (PWV) did not differ between groups but calcification score and ambulatory arterial stiffness index (AASI) were significantly the highest in récipients with reversed rhythm. That was also the case in nondippers recipients. Peer reviewed
