Isolated systolic hypertension, the most common form of hypertension in the elderly, but also detectable among young and middle-aged subjects, is independently associated with higher risk of cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality. Among various pathophysiological changes associated with aging, excess body weight and insulin resistance may predispose to this type of hypertension. Overweight or frank obesity and their frequent companion insulin resistance could mediate the development of isolated systolic hypertension through increase in the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system activity, in the sympathetic tone and in salt-sensitivity, all in turn leading to endothelial dysfunction, arterial stiffness and increase in blood pressure...

Guidelines for the management of hypertension have been issued by different hypertension societies or organizations. Despite many similarities one can identify major differences in the diagnosis, management and treatment of the hypertensive patients among ESH/ESC, NICE, Canadian and NJC8 guidelines. Differences that can be identified are in the definition of hypertension in the elderly population, the optimal blood pressure targets in different hypertensive populations such as patients with diabetes and chronic kidney disease patients and the choose of the initial and appropriate antihypertensive agent depending on comorbidities of the treated population...

Despite the improvements in the management of hypertension during the last three decades, it continues to be one of the leading causes of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality worldwide. Effective and sustained reductions in blood pressure (BP) reduce the incidence of myocardial infarction, stroke, congestive heart failure and cardiovascular death. However, the proportion of patients who achieve the recommended BP goal (< 140/90 mmHg) is persistently low, worldwide. Poor adherence to therapy, complex therapeutic regimens, clinical inertia, drug-related adverse events and multiple risk factors or comorbidities contribute to the disparity between the potential and actual BP control rate...

INTRODUCTION: Understanding lifestyle behavior among individuals with hypertension is important for achieving hypertension control. AIM: This study explored perception, knowledge, attitude and participation in physical activity (PA) among individuals with hypertension attending tertiary hospitals in a south-eastern Nigerian state.

INTRODUCTION: Peripheral and central blood pressures are parameters of arterial stiffness and important cardiovascular risk markers. Today, there are non-invasive methods that measure these pressures. AIM: To validate the non-invasive oscillometric method, compared with invasive pressure measurements obtained by cardiac catheterization. METHODS: An open, prospective cohort clinical study in 100 patients, 64 ± 11 years old. The measurement of peripheral and central blood pressures obtained using the Arteriograph(®) system oscillometric method, (TensioMed, Budapest-Hungary, Ltd...

INTRODUCTION: To prevent stroke, anticoagulants should be administered after calculation of CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED scores in patients with Atrial Fibrillation (AF); nonetheless, these scores are sometimes neglected in clinical settings. AIM: The present study was designed to assess agreement of anticoagulant therapy according to clinicians and CHA2DS2-VASc and HAS-BLED scores in Iranian AF patients in Moddares Hospital. METHODS: AF patients were diagnosed according to clinical history, clinical examination, and electrocardiogram...

INTRODUCTION: The association between arterial parameters and blood pressure (BP) interindividual variations could depend on the arterial segment, BP component (systolic, SBP; diastolic, DBP; pulse pressure, PP) and/or on whether central (cBP) or peripheral (pBP) BP variations are considered. AIM: To assess and compare arterial parameters variations associated with interindividual variations in cBP and pBP. METHODS: Healthy subjects (n = 923; 488 males, 2-84 years) were included...

Saman Khalesi, Christopher Irwin, Jing Sun
INTRODUCTION: Poor anti-hypertension medication (AHT) adherence can increase disease costs and adverse outcomes. Hypertensive individuals who have a better nutrition knowledge may lead a healthier lifestyle, have a better health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and greater confidence to change behaviour. On this basis, they may have better treatment adherence. AIM: To explore the association between the above-mentioned variables and AHT adherence in a group of Australian adults with high blood pressure (BP) in a cross-sectional clinical and community-based study...

INTRODUCTION: In Russia, blood pressure (BP) control is below the optimal. The little is known about regional features and barriers to adequate BP control in Russian primary care. AIM: To evaluate the impact of clinical factors on achieving the target BP in hypertensive patients in one region of Russia. METHODS: Retrospective medical data of 2015 on 11,129 patients (31.4% male) with hypertension (Htn) from Ivanovo region of Russia were examined...

INTRODUCTION: Carotid siphon calcifications (CSC) are an important imaging marker of systemic atherosclerosis. Routine assessment of asymptomatic CSC may allow the implementation of intervention strategies before catastrophic cerebrovascular events occur. AIM: To assess whether brachial PP determinations might independently predicts the presence and severity of CSC in community-dwelling adults. METHODS: All Atahualpa residents aged ≥40 years were invited for the practice of a non-enhanced CT scan of the head, and those who signed the informed consent and had no contraindications for this exam were enrolled...

INTRODUCTION: During sleep there is reduction of blood pressure (BP) caused by a decrease of the sympathetic nervous tone. This nocturnal "dipping" phenomenon, assessable with ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM), is blunted with increasing age. AIM: To assess the effect of hospitalization on night-time BP fall in old-elderly patients. METHODS: We analysed 78 ABPM of old-elderly hospitalized patients (mean age 91 ± 0.5 years) and those of 18 outpatients as control group...

Shijun Li, Xiaoying Li
INTRODUCTION: Systolic blood pressure (SBP) is emerging as a predictor of outcome in chronic heart failure and low SBP has been shown to be related to higher mortality. AIM: To investigate the relationship between low SBP and long-term outcome in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). METHODS: We use prospectively collected data and recruited 297 patients with chronic HFpEF to investigate the relationship between low SBP at discharge and long-term outcome...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertriglyceridemia (triglycerides ≥200 mg/dL) is a major cardiovascular risk factor. Despite the high incidence of this condition in the Italian population, epidemiological information remains limited. AIM: To analyze a large database of clinical charts from general practitioners in the Rome area of Italy. METHODS: In this study, the DATAMEG database of patients treated in the Rome area between 2000 and 2015 was analyzed...

REVIEW
Eugenio Stabile, Raffaele Izzo, Francesco Rozza, Maria Angela Losi, Nicola De Luca, Bruno Trimarco
The "Campania Salute" (CS) is a network system aimed at improving the management of essential hypertension by integrating the activity of general practitioners (GPs) with that of the hypertension specialists. It involves 23 outpatient hypertensive clinics distributed in different community hospitals of the Napoli's metropolitan area, 60 randomly selected GPs homogeneously distributed in the same area, and the Hypertension Clinic of the Federico II University in Naples (co-ordinating centre). Through the CS system it is possible to share clinical data collected during each visit at peripheral units (general practitioners and community hospitals hypertensive clinics), which manage low-risk hypertensive patients, and the co-ordinating centre, which mainly manages high-risk hypertensive patients...

INTRODUCTION: Pharmacological inhibition of dipeptidyl-peptidase-4 may represent a promising therapeutic approach for glucose control and vascular protection. No information is available on the effects of saxagliptin (S) on aortic pulse wave velocity, carotid intima-media thickness and flow-mediated dilation (FMD, brachial artery) in diabetes. AIM: We investigated the long-term effects of S, as add-on therapy to metformin, on the above mentioned variables. METHODS: In 16 patients with decompensated diabetes aortic pulse wave velocity, carotid intima-media thickness and FMD, office and 24-h ambulatory blood pressure, anthropometric, biochemical and metabolic parameters were measured at baseline and after 6 and 12 months of treatment...
