Q: What is the advantage of Fosinopril (Monopril) over other ACE-Inhibitors?

Answer:  Fosinopril is the only phosphinate-containing ACE inhibitor.

Clinical significance: In contrast to other ACE inhibitors, fosinopril is eliminated from the body via both renal and hepatic pathways, which make it a safer choice in  patients with impaired kidney function.
