REVIEW
Rita Del Pinto, Claudio Ferri
Hypertension is a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality with increasing prevalence with age, whose treatment is associated with benefits over fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events even later in life. However, there are persistent concerns on the short- and long-term weighted benefits of treating hypertension in the very old, particularly in those with specific clinical features. In fact, a broad range of clinical scenarios can be observed at older ages, spanning from the healthy to the frailest patient, and hypertension clinical trials have traditionally excluded the latter, thus preventing the unconditioned application to these patients of the same recommendations as in younger ages...

Prevalence of arterial hypertension is up to 30-40% in epidemiological studies, it increases with aging and affects the cardiovascular risk. Essential form of hypertension is the most frequent; however, 5-10% of patients are affected by a specific and potentially reversible cause of increased blood pressure levels, called secondary hypertension. In general, all patients with young onset-age (< 40-50 years) or resistant hypertension should be screened for secondary forms. Among them, primary aldosteronism, Cushing's Syndrome and pheochromocytoma are the most common cause of endocrine hypertension associated with an autonomous secretion of adrenal hormones, often secondary to a tumor (either mono- or bi-lateral, or not always in the adrenals)...

INTRODUCTION: Left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) can be successfully reduced by antihypertensive medication. Both hypertension and aerobic exercise can cause increases in left ventricular mass (LV-mass). AIM: Therefore, hypertensive athletes with LVH were studied to investigate the effect of antihypertensive medication on LV-mass reduction despite continuing their regular intensive exercise programs. METHODS: 14 previously untreated hypertensive male athletes (A) with LVH and a prolonged history of endurance training where included in the study...

INTRODUCTION: Beyond the well-known effects on blood pressure (BP) of the dietary approaches to stop hypertension (DASH) and the Mediterranean diets associated to a correct lifestyle, often a lifestyle change is not simple and can show only long-time results: in this sense, a possible support might be derived from the use of some anti-hypertensive supplements or nutraceuticals, which may provide a significant reduction in blood pressure. AIM: We conducted a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical trial in a group of 36 pre-hypertensive and first-degree hypertensive patients...

INTRODUCTION: There are no population-level estimates in the United States for achievement of blood pressure goals in patients with diabetes and hypertension by obesity weight class. AIM: We sought to examine the relationship between the extent of obesity and the achievement of guideline-recommended blood pressure goals and other quality of care metrics among patients with diabetes. METHODS: We conducted an observational population-based cohort study of electronic health data of three large health systems from 2010-2012 in rural, urban and suburban settings of 51,229 adults with diabetes...

Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) may be complicated by severe hypertension (HT) and in turns severe HT can occur with neurological damage mimicking a GBS, so that underlying causes should be investigated. We describe a case of a 62-year-old woman presented to the emergency department for hypertensive crisis with symmetric flaccid paralysis, hypotonia and hyporeflexia of both upper and lower limbs. Brain computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging and lumbar puncture were normal. Laboratory investigations revealed severe hypokalemia, renal failure, liver impairment, rabdomyolysis, metabolic alkalosis, and low plasma renin and aldosterone levels...

INTRODUCTION: Increased carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) measurement is usually seen as a surrogate marker of peripheral artery disease (PAD) but there is scarce cumulated evidence to support this view. AIM: To evaluate prevalence of increased IMT among patients with symptomatic PAD as well as the frequency of some cardiovascular risk factors in these patients. METHODS: They were recruited 230 patients with diagnosis of medium peripheral artery disease in the Vascular Surgery Service outpatient's office...

INTRODUCTION: Fenofibrate is an effective and safe treatment for hypertriglyceridemia. However, after TG reduction a residual dyslipidemia could appear and require further treatment. AIM: To comparatively evaluate the short-term tolerability and efficacy of a combined lipid-lowering nutraceutical and pravastatin 40 mg in fenofibrate treated patients. METHOD: We prospectively enrolled 40 patients well-tolerating treatment with micronized fenofibrate 145 mg/day and with residual dyslipidemia (LDL-C > 115 mg/dL and TG > 150 mg/dL)...

INTRODUCTION: Glucagon-like peptide 1-receptor agonists (incretin mimetics) and dipeptidyl peptidase-4 inhibitors (incretin enhancers) have been recently introduced in the treatment of diabetes mellitus. In particular, incretin mimetics seems to have ancillary antioxidant/antinflammatory properties that might be involved in endothelial protection. AIM: To investigate the effect of incretin mimetic therapy (liraglutide, exenatide) given to 11 patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, on circulating endothelial progenitor cells (EPCs) (bone marrow-derived cells possibly participating in neovascularization and endothelial protection and repair) and capillary density...
