Background: Hypertension is one of the main causes of cardiovascular complications leading to death and allograft dysfunction. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the levels of 24 h blood pressure and left ventricular mass index (LVMI) and bi-ventricular tissue Doppler echocardiographic measurements in renal transplant recipients (RTxr) and dialysis patients.
