Blood pressure control is an important component of ADPKD management. Available evidence reveals that in patients whose renal function is normal but who are at high risk for disease progression, the maintenance of blood pressure at or below a target value of 110/75 mm Hg lessens renal enlargement, albuminuria, and left ventricular hypertrophy. The HALT-PKD study showed that vigorous blood pressure control was associated with slower increase in total kidney volume. This in turn affects the progression of renal failure in PKD patients.
