Abstract: Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors are gaining acceptance as safe and effective agents for treatment of hypertension. Data on their use specifically in elderly hypertensives, however, are limited. Addressed in this review of the available literature are the questions whether they are effective hypotensives in the elderly, whether their effects are age-related, and what effects, if any, do they have on morbidity and mortality in geriatric hypertension.
