Abstract

Hypertension has been reported to occur following extracorporeal shock wave lithotripsy (ESWL). Retrospective studies reported an incidence of new onset hypertension between 2.4 and 8.1%) and a significant rise in mean diastolic blood pressure was observed by some authors1-5. In order to assess the clinical impact of the potential risk of hypertension after ESWL, the present prospective study was performed.
