Target-organ damage left ventricular mass index, carotid wall thickness and urinary albumin was most increased in those with masked hypertension. Researchers concluded that masked hypertension is a "significant predictor" of target organ damage, independent of other variables. Average day and night BP was higher in those with sustained hypertension, but short-term BP variations were higher in those with masked hypertension. This variability may account for the greater impact of masked hypertension, which poses "an independent risk for target organ damage."
