INTRODUCTION: High blood pressure (BP) is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The urgency of the problem was underlined by the World Health Organization (WHO) Global Action Plan for the prevention and control of noncommunicable diseases, which recommends a 25% relative reduction in the prevalence of raised BP by 2020. A surveillance system represents a useful tool to monitor BP in the general population. Since 1980s, the National Institute of Health has conducted several surveys of the adult general population, measuring cardiovascular risk factors by standardized procedures and methods...

Some tumors are a relatively rare and amendable cause of hypertension, often associated with a higher cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, as compared with that of both general population and patients with essential hypertension. This worse prognosis is not entirely related to blood pressure increase, because the release of substances from the tumor can directly influence blood pressure behavior. Diagnostic approach is challenging and needs a deep knowledge of the different neuro-hormonal and genetic mechanisms determining blood pressure increase...

The evaluation of 24-hour central blood pressure (24h cBP) combines the cBP non-invasive assessment with the 24-h ambulatory BP measurement. The major strength of the 24-h cBP evaluation is the ability to assess the degree of circadian changes between central and peripheral BP, namely 24-h BP amplification. This allows an accurate quantification of the degree of spatial and temporal BP variability in each single individual. BP amplification depends from a number of factors, such as the interaction between pressure and flow pulsatile motions, vasomotor tone, arterial tapering and other physiological and anthropometrical determinants...

PURPOSE: The present study was carried out to investigate the pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic drug interaction of irbesartan with glipizide after single and multi dose treatment in normal and hypertensive rat models to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the combination. METHODS: The study was conducted on normal and 10% fructose solution induced hypertensive rats. Irbesartan and glipizide were administered orally for 7 days and on 8th day blood samples were collected for 12 h at regular time intervals from irbesartan alone and in combination with glipizide treated groups...

Prevalence of cardiovascular (CV) disease is increasing worldwide. One of the most important risk factors for CV disease is hypertension that is very often related to obesity and metabolic syndrome. The search for key mechanisms, linking high blood pressure (BP), glucose and lipid dysmetabolism together with higher CV risk and mortality, is attracting increasing attention. Cardiac natriuretic peptides (NPs), including ANP and BNP, may play a crucial role in maintaining CV homeostasis and cardiac health, given their impact not only on BP regulation, but also on glucose and lipid metabolism...

INTRODUCTION: Recent anatomical and clinical studies have led to the hypothesis that in several cases of failure of response to renal denervation (RDN), the procedure has not been technically correct. AIM: To perform procedural reassessment in patients with true resistant hypertension who underwent RDN. METHODS: We retrospectively reassessed the procedural technique of RDN in 10 true resistant hypertensive patients, comparing the sites of renal ablations with the knowledge of animal and human post mortem evidences...

Isolated systolic hypertension (ISH) is the most common form of hypertension in older persons and its predictive value for adverse outcome is well known. However, ISH can be frequently found also in young individuals, especially among males, but its prognostic significance in this setting is still controversial. Increased large artery stiffness is the main determinant of ISH in elderly patients whereas the mechanisms that lead to ISH in the young are still debated. According to some authors ISH in youth is a totally benign condition that can be called "spurious hypertension" a phenomenon due to enhanced pulse pressure amplification of the pulse wave from central to peripheral sites...

The introduction of Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor (VEGF) signaling pathway inhibitor treatment has highlighted the role of the baseline activity of the VEFG system for blood pressure regulation. VEGF signaling pathway is associated with hypertension and proteinuria. Activation of the endothelin system, endothelial dysfunction and capillary rarefaction are among the underlying mechanisms possibly explaining the rise in blood pressure and, to some extent, also the renal injury. The hypertension induced by VEGF signaling pathway inhibition is, usually, responsive to treatment...

Heart failure (HF) is a major problem of public health. More than 23 million patients worldwide are affected by heart failure. Despite incidence and prevalence of heart failure may vary according to real world or randomized trials database, advancing age is a major determinant of heart failure. Heart failure is also characterized by an elevated rate of morbidity and mortality and represents one of the leading causes of hospitalization. A major consequence of heart failure is the frequent hospital admissions and related costs...

INTRODUCTION: Chronic heart failure (CHF) is a major public health concern. From a public health perspective, the epidemiology of CHF needs to be distinguished from that of its related acute form. Data stemming from primary care are crucial to better know and update the prevalence and incidence rates of CHF. AIM: To update the epidemiology of CHF in an Italian primary care setting and to describe socio-demographic, lifestyle, and clinical characteristics of these patients...

Age is one of the main risk factor for the presence of obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). This syndrome is associated with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, cognitive impairment and metabolic abnormalities, such as type 2 diabetes. Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) represents the gold standard therapy, but its benefit is still to be determined in very elderly. We report the blood pressure and metabolic changes in a very elderly obese with severe OSA after 3-month CPAP therapy. We have evaluated a very elderly obese male affected by severe symptomatic OSA, poor controlled nocturnal hypertension and insulin resistance...

INTRODUCTION: Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) is the gold standard test for the subtyping of primary aldosteronism (PA). This procedure is hampered by unsuccessful bilateral cannulation of adrenal veins in up to two thirds of the cases depending on the cutoff of the selectivity index used. The rapid intra-procedural cortisol assay (IRCA) can increase the rate of bilateral success of AVS. This hypothesis needs to be proven using a randomized prospective study approach. AIM: We will therefore evaluate if an IRCA guiding adrenal vein sampling can increase the rate of selectivity and success of adrenal vein catheterization...

We report the case of a 41-year-old male patient with juvenile onset refractory hypertension while taking four drugs including a diuretic. Fourteen years before he underwent a complete investigation for secondary hypertension (including the aldosterone to renin ratio-ARR) that was negative. Since that, hypertension control gradually worsened, hypertensive organ damage aggravated and hypokalemia developed in spite of ACE inhibitor treatment. At the re-evaluation ARR was elevated, and the further workup for primary aldosteronism demonstrated an unilateral aldosterone producing adenoma that was surgically removed, with subsequent optimal blood pressure control with two anti-hypertensive drugs...
