Introduction Hypertension is an important risk factor for dementia as much as the morbidity and mortality of cardiovascular disease. Sustained hypertension is also more related to that risk. The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) and cognitive functions in elderly hypertensive patients without comorbid diseases which may deteriorate cognitive functions.
