  • Mean trough SiSBP 140 mmHg as measured by AOBPM.

Randomization period:

  • Stable dose of the standardized background antihypertensive therapy since start of the RI period;
  • Mean trough SiSBP 140 mmHg measured by AOBPM.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Apparent/pseudo RHT due to white coat effect, medical inertia, poor therapeutic adherence, or secondary causes of hypertension (except sleep apnea);
