Abstract

The SUPPORT trial evaluated the effect of adding the angiotensin-receptor blocker olmesartan to a combination of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitors and beta-blockers in hypertensive patients with chronic stable heart failure. Unfortunately, this triple renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system blockade was associated with worsening of renal function and increases in cardiac events and mortality.
