INTRODUCTION - International and Hungarian (JNC-7, ESH/ESC2007 és 2009, MHT 2009) Guidelines suggest a target blood pressure <140/90 mmHg for hypertensive patients, and <130/80 mmHg for those with high/very high cardiovascular risk (e.g. patients with diabetes mellitus, chronic renal disease). It was proved that for achieving the most efficient antihypertensive effect and reducing side effects, thd use of drug combinations is needed in most patients. In Hungary, ACE-inhibitor plus diuretic combination is one of the most frequently used one in Hungary. The aim of the PICASSO study was to evaluate the efficacy and metabolic effects of the fixed combination of high-dose perindopril plus indapamide (Coverex-AS Komb Forte) in clinical practice of hypertonolo-gists, cardiologists and general practi-cioners.
