Mean and SD for men in standard and rigorous BP control groups on all measurements at baseline and 7 years

a LVMI, left ventricular mass index; MAP, mean arterial pressures.
b Blood pressures were measured a after 2- to 4-week washout period without hypertensive medications.
c To convert serum creatinine values to micromoles per liter, multiply by 88.4.
