[en] Differences between clinic and out-of-clinic BP, defined as white coat effect (WCE), white coat hypertension (WCH) or masked hypertension (MH), can leat to misdiagnosis and -handling when decisions are solely based on clinic BP measurement. One aim of the study was to examine the risk factors of WCE and MH in late KT. Conclusion:Out-of-clinic BP monitoring should be encouraged to be applied more often in high risk-populations such as KT, especially when risk factors for WCE or MH are present.
