Late arterial hypertension has been identified as a major predictor for morbidity and mortality in aortic coarctation (AoC) patients. Few data are available about efficacy and tolerability of angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors vs beta-blockers in young AoC patients. This study aimed to evaluate the tolerability and efficacy on 24-h blood pressure (BP) and left ventricular mass/height2.7 (LVMI), of atenolol vs enalapril. We enrolled consecutive AoC hypertensive patients with (a) no history of BP treatment or after >48 h of withdrawn, (b) aged 6–20 years, (c) body mass index (BMI) <90th percentile for age and sex, (d) >12 months from a successful AoC repair and (e) no major associated cardiovascular abnormalities. All patient were evaluated with 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring, standard echocardiography, strain–strain rate imaging, at enrolment, 3, 6 and 12 months of treatment. We studied 51 AoC patients (13±3.9 years, BMI: 21.4±4.3 kg m–2). Patients were randomly assigned at atenolol treatment (n=26), or enalapril treatment (n=25). The mean follow-up duration was 11±2 months. Both drugs were able to significantly reduce 24-systolic BP (SBP; atenolol: 133±11 mm Hg vs 124±16 mm Hg, P=0.016; enalapril: 135±6 mm Hg vs 127±7 mm Hg, P=0.001). Only enalapril was able to significantly reduce LVMI (47±12  vs 39.6±10 g m–2.7, P=0.016). Only in atenolol group in two cases (7.7%) drug withdrawal was needed because of adverse events. Enalapril and atenolol are similarly effective in reducing SBP. However, only enalapril demonstrated a significant reduction of LVMI. In no case, enalapril was stopped because of adverse events.
