BACKGROUND: Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of secondary hypertension and bilateral adrenal hyperplasia (BAH) and aldosterone-producing adenoma (APA) seem to be the most common causes of PA. Unilateral adrenalectomy (UA) is the preferred treatment for APA, although the benefits are still difficult to assess. CASE REPORT: We present a case report of a 69-year old man with a 30 year history of hypertension and probably long-standing PA due to APA, with typical organ complications...

PURPOSE: Determining familial aggregation is an important first step in narrowing the search for disease-causing genes and hence we determined the familial aggregation of EH among first degree relatives of children with EH. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We prospectively enrolled children with EH along with their first degree relatives from a tertiary pediatric hypertension clinic in a large ambulatory care center. We utilized rigorous methodology for blood pressure (BP) measurements and diagnoses of EH to reduce the heterogeneity in the phenotype...

OBJECTIVES: Taxing psychosocial stress and defensive coping have been associated with hypoactivity in cortisol, a vasoconstrictive agent. Estradiol has vasodilatory properties with cardio- and neuroprotective effects. It can however also induce α1 -adrenergic vasoconstrictive responsiveness. We aimed to determine whether the cortisol-to-estradiol ratio (Cort:E2) may augment α1 -adrenergic responsiveness and hypertension risk when habitually using defensive coping. METHODS: African (n = 168) and Caucasian (n = 207) men and women (46 ± 9 years) were included...

PURPOSE: Recently we reported the use of renal nerve stimulation (RNS) during renal denervation (RDN) procedures. RNS induced changes in blood pressure (BP) and heart rate are not fully delineated yet. We hypothesized that electrical stimulation of the sympathetic nerve tissue in the renal artery would lead to an increase in BP and vagal stimulation would cause a decrease in BP. We report the different patterns of BP and heart rate responses elicited by RNS prior to RDN. METHODS: 35 patients with drug-resistant hypertension were included...

PURPOSE: Only few studies evaluated biomarkers useful for defining the cardiovascular risk of a subject in a pre-clinical condition (i.e. healthy subjects). In this context we sought to determine the relationships of Plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1), P-Selectin, Tissue Inhibitors Metalloproteinases type 1 (TIMP-1) and Cystatin-C with subclinical Target Organ Damage (TOD) in normotensive and normoglycemic subjects without known cardiovascular and kidney diseases. MATERIALS AND METHODS: 480 blood donors participated at the present analysis...

AIMS: Several papers reported that unattended automated office blood pressure (uAutoOBP) is closely related to daytime ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). In the present study, we aim to study uAutoOBP and its relation to 24-hour ABPM and ABPM variability. MATERIAL AND METHODS: Stable treated hypertensive subjects were examined in two Czech academic hypertension centres. uAutoOBP was measured with the BP Tru device; attended BP three times with auscultatory method (AuscOBP) by the physician...

BACKGROUND: In the development of hypertensive microvascular remodeling, a relevant role may be played by changes in extracellular matrix proteins. Aim of this study was the to evaluate some extracellular matrix components within the tunica media of subcutaneous small arteries in 9 normotensive subjects and 12 essential hypertensive patients, submitted to a biopsy of subcutaneous fat from the gluteal or the anterior abdominal region. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Subcutaneous small resistance arteries were dissected and mounted on an isometric myograph, and the tunica media to internal lumen ratio was measured...

OBJECTIVE: Carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) was associated with serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) in untreated Chinese. We investigated in the same cohort whether cfPWV, brachial-ankle (baPWV) and heart-brachial (hbPWV) pulse wave velocity (PWV) were associated with rs6127099 (CYP24A1) and rs4074995 (RGS14). A previously published genome-wide association study demonstrated that each additional copy of the T (rs6127099) or G (rs4074995) allele was associated with a 7% or 3% higher serum PTH, respectively...

BACKGROUND: Endostatin, cleaved from collagen XVIII in the extracellular matrix, is a promising circulating biomarker for cardiovascular damage. It possesses anti-angiogenic and anti-fibrotic functions and has even been suggested to be involved in blood pressure regulation. Less is known if endostatin levels relate to circadian blood pressure patterns. In the present paper we studied the association between circulating levels of endostatin and nocturnal dipping in blood pressure. METHODS: We used the CARDIPP-study, a cohort of middle aged, type 2 diabetics (n = 593, 32% women), with data on both 24-hour and office blood pressure, serum-endostatin, cardiovascular risk factors, and incident major cardiovascular events...

OBJECTIVES: Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) improves upper airway obstruction in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), who often are overweight-obese. Although it is thought that CPAP improves long-term blood pressure control (BP), the impact of acute and short-term CPAP use on the cardiovascular system in obese patients has not been described in detail. METHODS: Obese patients (body mass index, BMI > 25 kg/m2 ) with OSA were studied awake, supine during incremental CPAP titration (4-20 cmH2 O, +2 cmH2 O/3 mins)...

PURPOSE: This observational study investigated the association between serum osteocalcin level and blood pressure in a Chinese population. MATERIALS AND METHODS: A total of 2241 subjects (909 men and 1,332 women; age, 24-78 years) from Shanghai communities were recruited. Subjects were divided into non-hypertensive and hypertensive groups according to diagnosis of hypertension based on the 1999 World Health Organization-International Society of Hypertension Guidelines...

PURPOSE: Although self-measurement of home blood pressure (HBP) is common in Japan and HBP telemonitoring via the Internet is possible, whether telemonitoring improves HBP control better than conventional practice remains unclear. Furthermore, hypertension care with online communication using telemonitored HBP is feasible, whereas the efficacy and safety of such telemedicine have not been established. We aim to compare traditional care, care with office visits using HBP telemonitoring, and antihypertensive telemedicine based on HBP telemonitoring...

PURPOSE: Inter-arm systolic blood pressure differences (IASBPD) and inter-leg systolic blood pressure differences (ILSBPD) have arisen as potential tools to detect peripheral artery disease (PAD) and individuals at high cardiovascular risk. This study aims to evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of IASBPD and ILSBPD to detect PAD, and whether IASBPD or ILSBPD improves diagnostic accuracy of the oscillometric ankle-brachial index (ABI). MATERIALS AND METHODS: In this prospective study, eligible for inclusion were consecutive adults, with at least one of the following cardiovascular risk factors: diabetes, dyslipidemia, hypertension, smoking habit or age ≥65...

PURPOSE: Inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system may have effects on vascular structure and function beyond the effects on blood pressure (BP) reduction. We studied the ability of a single arm cuff oscillometric method (Arteriograph, TensioMed, Hungary) to assess effects of antihypertensive treatment on BP and arterial stiffness. Furthermore, this technique was compared to pulse wave analysis and applanation tonometry (SphygmoCor, AtCor Medical, Australia). MATERIALS AND METHODS: Brachial and aortic BP, augmentation index (AIx), and carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV) was simultaneously assessed by both techniques in 71 untreated hypertensive patients...

Whilst much uncertainty exists as to the efficacy of renal denervation (RDN), the positive results of the DENERHTN study in France confirmed the interest of an economic evaluation in order to assess efficiency of RDN and inform local decision makers about the costs and benefits of this intervention. The uncertainty surrounding both the outcomes and the costs can be described using health economic methods such as the non-parametric bootstrap. Internationally, numerous health economic studies using a cost-effectiveness model to assess the impact of RDN in terms of cost and effectiveness compared to antihypertensive medical treatment have been conducted...

PURPOSE: Retinal microcirculation represents an easily accessible, non-invasive, in-vivo possibility to assess early microvascular changes. In addition to the assessment of functional (e.g. retinal capillary flow, RCF) and retinal arteriolar structural parameters (e.g. wall-to-lumen-ratio, WLR) we now suggest a new parameter reflecting the resistance in small retinal arterioles (RVR). MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 45 normotensive (NT) subjects and 123 patients with hypertension stage 1 (HT) we assessed RCF, WLR, arteriolar diameter, lumen diameter and wall cross section area in the retinal circulation by using scanning laser Doppler flowmetry (SLDF)...
