Figure 632

Meta-analysis of over 1500 patients with renal insufficiency. A recent meta-analysis examined randomized studies comparing an angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACE) to other antihypertensive agents [42]. None of the individual studies showed that the relative risk for development of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) was statistically lower in patients treated with ACE inhibitors. The pooled relative risk, incorporating data from all the studies, however, was lower in the cohort groups treated with ACE inhibitors.
