BACKGROUND: Masked hypertension (MHT), defined as normal office blood pressure (BP) but high ambulatory BP, has been associated with increased cardiovascular risk. Although MHT has been associated with obesity, there is limited knowledge on the prevalence and covariates of MHT in obese cohorts. METHODS: Office and ambulatory BP recordings and other cardiovascular risk factors were assessed in 323 obese participants included in the fat-associated cardiovascular dysfunction study (mean age 48...

BACKGROUND: Patients with hypertension are predisposed to atherosclerosis of large vessels and are at increased risk of target organ damage and related clinical sequelae. Cardioankle vascular index (CAVI) is a novel parameter of arterial stiffness and a surrogate marker of subclinical atherosclerosis. The aim of the present study was to investigate the relation between aortic knob calcification (AKC) and CAVI in asymptomatic hypertensive patients. METHODS AND RESULTS: Sixty patients with AKC and age-matched sex-matched 60 control individuals without AKC were enrolled...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the agreement between elevated outpatient clinic office blood pressure (OC-OBP) as measured in the daily routine in our University Hospital Cardiology Outpatient Clinic and subsequent awake ambulatory blood pressure (AABP). METHODS: In all patients referred for ambulatory blood pressure monitoring from our Cardiology Outpatient Clinic, we identified OC-OBP and changes in medication in the period from 1 January 2014 to 15 September 2015...

OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to evaluate the accuracy of Transtek LS808-B according to the European Society of Hypertension International Protocol revision 2010 (ESH-IP2010). METHODS: A total of 33 adult individuals (19 men and 14 women, mean age 46.8±15.8 years) were recruited; their systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) were measured using the mercury sphygmomanometer and Transtek LS808-B. A total of 99 pairs of measurements were obtained from these 33 participants for comparison in two parts with three grading phases...

INTRODUCTION: Little is known about the effects of atrial fibrillation (AF) on blood pressure (BP) levels in hypertensive patients. Some studies suggest a role for rhythm control in managing such patients' BP, but the improvement observed in cardiac performance after restoring sinus rhythm (SR) may coincide with an increase in BP. The aim of this study was to apply ambulatory BP monitoring to analyze BP changes in hypertensive patients after electrical cardioversion for persistent AF...

BACKGROUND: Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) was shown to predict specific subclinical target organ damage (TOD) progression better than clinic BP, whereas the usefulness of ambulatory and clinic BP measurements to predict overall TOD progression is not well established. METHODS AND RESULTS: Clinic and 24-h ambulatory BP values were obtained in 280 patients on baseline. A total of 199 participants (mean age 62.5±9.5, 59.3% men) were followed up for an average of 39 months and overall subclinical TOD were recorded at the end of follow-up period...

BACKGROUND: Automated blood pressure (BP) devices have been used in the home for self-management purposes and are increasingly being used in population-based research. Although these devices are convenient and affordable and may be used by inexperienced lay personnel, the potential impact of an examiner's skill level on the results needs to be evaluated quantitatively. The aim of this study was to compare BP measurements obtained in a home setting by personnel with healthcare experience with those obtained by personnel without healthcare experience...

BACKGROUND: Manufacturer-supplied blood pressure (BP) cuffs are part of the automatic oscillometric BP devices algorithm. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This study assessed the differences in BP values using the Omron HEM 907-XL (Omron) device with two types of cuffs: the Baum cuff (BC) and the supplied Omron cuff (OC). A sample of 102 adults participated in the study, 34 per cuff size (adult, large, and extra-large). After a 5-min resting period, three pairs of BP determinations (systolic and diastolic) were taken simultaneously on both arms...

BACKGROUND: It is controversial whether high salt intake is directly associated with cardiovascular (CV) events and how far this relation is independent of blood pressure (BP). As Portugal has higher salt consumption and higher mortality by stroke than other European countries, we examined whether salt intake could predict the development of stroke and CV events in a hypertensive population. METHODS: In a longitudinal retrospective study of a cohort of 608 adult treated hypertensive patients 54...

BACKGROUND: Heightened aortic augmentation index (AIx; surrogate of arterial stiffness) is associated with an elevated risk of cardiovascular events; however, it is currently unclear whether peripheral blood pressure (BP) modulates AIx. AIM: Given this, we studied the relationship between AIx and BP under resting conditions as well as during skeletal muscle metaboreflex activation, which is a maneuver that generates steady elevations in BP. METHODS: In nine healthy male participants (23±2 years), the graded activation of the muscle metaboreflex was achieved by postexercise ischemia (PEI) following moderate and high-intensity static handgrip performed at 30 and 40% maximum voluntary contraction...

BACKGROUND: Recent attention has focused on the clinical significance of blood pressure variability (BPV) in explaining the adverse cardiovascular consequences of hypertension. We therefore analyze the impact of 24 h BPV on the development of future cardiovascular disease determined by The Pooled Cohort Risk Assessment Equations 10-year risk calculator. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed 250 adult patients, ages 40-80 years old. The ambulatory blood pressure monitoring was recorded automatically...

BACKGROUND: The main aim of the current study was to investigate the association between presystolic wave (PSW) and subclinical left ventricular (LV) dysfunction. PATIENTS AND METHODS: A total of 139 patients admitted to the cardiology outpatient clinic with hypertension were consecutively enrolled. The patient population included 79 men and 60 women. The presence of a PSW on the left ventricular outflow tract flow was evaluated in all patients. Subclinical LV dysfunction was defined as the presence of a tissue Doppler-derived myocardial performance index (MPI) of at least 0...

BACKGROUND: Blood pressure (BP) variability has been shown to be an independent risk factor of stroke and target organ damage because of hypertension, but so far, there have been very few studies investigating the impact of BP variability on cerebrovascular atherosclerosis. METHODS: A total of 409 participants were enrolled and classified according to patterns of cerebrovascular atherosclerosis (i.e. large or small artery atherosclerosis; extracranial; or intracranial artery atherosclerosis)...
