As authors of the clinical snapshot (1), we thank Prof. Seifert for his important and valuable correspondence. We also believe that AT1 receptor blockers are an alternative to ACEI when the latter drug group causes angioedema. While angioedema can in principle also occur with these, this occurs less frequently, as Prof. Seifert correctly points out. We likewise agree that swift action is necessary as soon as angioedema is suspected.
