The effects of body mass index on the diagnostic accuracy of primary aldosteronism (PA) are inconsistent and yet important considering the high prevalence and frequent co-occurrence of obesity and hypertension. The current study included 59 adult patients who underwent a stepwise evaluation for PA, using aldosterone to renin ratio for case detection and plasma aldosterone concentration after saline suppression test and/or 24-hour urinary aldosterone after oral sodium loading for case confirmation. Body mass index had a quadratic (U-shaped) correlation with plasma aldosterone concentration, plasma renin activity, aldosterone to renin ratio, and plasma aldosterone concentration after saline suppression test...

Hui Liu, Jie Yao, Weijing Wang, Dongfeng Zhang
A meta-analysis was conducted to evaluate the association between duration of oral contraceptive use and risk of hypertension. Relevant studies published in English or Chinese were identified by a search of PubMed, Web of Science, Wanfang Database, and China National Knowledge Infrastructure to January 2017. Seventeen articles containing 24 studies with 270,284 participants were included in this meta-analysis. The pooled relative risk of hypertension for the highest vs lowest category of oral contraceptive duration was 1...

REVIEW
Nicolás Roberto Robles, Roman Hernandez-Gallego, Francesco Fici, Guido Grassi
Aggressive reduction of blood pressure may increase cardiovascular events (the J-curve phenomenon) in certain populations. In this regard, most studies in patients with chronic kidney disease have shown a J curve for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality, and this phenomenon persists after adjusting for confounding factors. Since there is no evidence that a straighter blood pressure target (<130/70 mm Hg) could improve renal outcomes, the increased cardiovascular risk associated with extreme blood pressure reduction should be seen as undesirable...

Prehospital hypertensive emergencies and urgencies are common, but evidence is lacking. Telemedically supported hypertensive emergencies and urgencies were prospectively collected (April 2014-March 2015) and compared retrospectively with a historical control group of on-scene physician care in the emergency medical service of Aachen, Germany. Blood pressure management and guideline adherence were evaluated. Telemedical (n=159) vs conventional (n=172) cases: blood pressure reductions of 35±24 mm Hg vs 44±23 mm Hg revealed a group effect adjusted for baseline differences (P=...

Using the National Health Insurance Research Database of Taiwan, the authors identified 1136 patients taking fixed-dose combination and 4544 patients taking free combinations of an angiotensin II receptor blocker and a dihydropyridine calcium channel blocker from January 2009 to December 2012. At a mean follow-up of 2.1 years, the fixed-dose combination was associated with improved medication adherence and persistence and better survival free from major adverse cardiac events and hospitalization for heart failure compared with the free combination regimens...

In an 8-week randomized trial of patients with mild or moderate hypertension, the authors investigated the efficacy and tolerability of initial high (5.0 mg/d) vs low (2.5 mg/d) doses of S-(-)-amlodipine (equivalent to 5 and 10 mg of racemic amlodipine, respectively). In the S-(-)-amlodipine 2.5-mg group (n=263), 24-hour ambulatory systolic/diastolic blood pressure (±standard deviation) decreased from 131.5±15.0/82.1±10.7 mm Hg at baseline to 126.0±13.5/78.5±9.5 mm Hg at 8 weeks of follow-up by a least square mean (±standard error) change of 6...

Although dyslipidemia is associated with cardiovascular disease, there are conflicting data about the role of serum lipids and their ratios in promoting arterial stiffness. The authors aimed to compare serum lipid profiles to predict arterial stiffness, which was assessed by brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity in young Chinese men. A total of 1015 participants aged 18 to 44 years without serious comorbidities were recruited for conventional detection. Anthropometrics, brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity, serum lipids, and other laboratory data were measured...

We report the case of a young woman treated with selective renal embolization for renovascular hypertension caused by intrarenal artery stenosis and show follow-up imaging of the treated kidney. An 18-year-old woman had renin-dependent hypertension with intrarenal artery stenosis caused by fibromuscular dysplasia. A middle branch artery was nearly occluded, resulting in segmental renal ischemia with excessive renin secretion. Because our angioplasty attempt for revascularization failed as a result of technical difficulty, we performed selective embolization of the diseased vessel by anhydrous ethanol...

The Community Health Assessment Program-Philippines (CHAP-P) is an international collaboration of investigators whose aim is to adapt a previously proven Canadian community-based cardiovascular awareness and prevention intervention to the Philippines and other low-middle-income countries. Choosing a method of blood pressure measurement for the research program presents a challenge. There is increasing consensus globally that blood pressure measurement with automated devices is preferred. Recommendations from low-middle-income countries, including the Philippines, are less supportive of automated blood pressure devices...

The authors investigated interannual differences in the sodium excretion levels of young healthy Japanese women as estimated from spot urine analysis at Nakamura Gakuen University from 1995 to 2015. Participants included 4931 women aged 18 to 20 years who were classified into three time periods according to year of health check: first (1995-2001), second (2002-2007), and third (2008-2015). Estimated daily urinary sodium and potassium excretion levels and the sodium to potassium ratio were 120.6±31.9 mmol, 35...
