Abstract

The study included 31 patients with essential hypertension. Twenty-four hours blood pressure monitoring, assessment of neurological status and cognitive functions as well as single photon emission tomography were performed at baseline and three months after treatment. The beta-blocker therapy during 3 months exerted a positive effect on the brain perfusion that resulted in the improvement of cognitive function - verbal and visual memory, attention, psychomotor speed, thinking and visuoconstruction.
