[en] There has been a long debate about appropriate BP measurement techniques for evaluating the quality of BP control, especially in kidney transplantation (KT). Thus, one aim of the present study was to examine 3 methods of BP measurement and their reproducibility over a short period of 8 weeks. Conclusion: Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) and ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) should be applied more often also in KT, among others for reasons of better reproducibility over time than office blood pressure monitoring (OBPM).
