Regression dilution of systolic and diastolic blood pressure in patients with established cerebrovascular disease.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE: Blood pressure (BP) is a major risk factor for stroke and cardiovascular events. To quantify its effect, it is necessary to correct for regression dilution bias (RDB). RDB has been estimated from repeated measurements of BP in population-based studies, but there are no data in patients with established vascular disease. METHOD: We analyzed repeat measurements of BP from three large studies of patients with cerebrovascular disease: UK-TIA trial (n=2098), Dutch TIA tri...Expand abstract
