Abstract

Even with all the limitations on any observational analysis, this long-term study suggests for the first time that patients with angioedema started while on ACE-I treatment seem to have a condition predisposing to angioedema that is elicited by the treatment with these drugs. Further studies in this field appear advocated due to the potential severity of angioedema attacks.
