Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is associated with increased arterial stiffness. Although chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection was shown to be associated with metabolic disorder and chronic inflammation, the effects of chronic HCV infection on arterial stiffness remain unclear. This study recruited 221 patients including 32 normal controls, 72 NAFLD patients, and 117 subjects with HCV infection. Arterial stiffness was assessed by peripheral arterial stiffness index, Compliance Index (CI), and central arterial stiffness index, Stiffness Index derived from digital volume pulse by photoplethysmography...

Catecholamines play a major role in atherothrombotic mechanisms in essential hypertension. Alpha2B-adrenergic receptors (α2B-ARs) are implicated in the pathophysiology of platelet aggregation. In this study, we evaluated platelet α2B-AR gene expression levels in patients with well-controlled essential hypertension compared with normal individuals and investigated their association with increased arterial stiffness. Fifty-nine patients with well-controlled essential hypertension (34 men, mean age 65 ± 9 years) and 26 normotensives (19 men, mean age 64 ± 8 years) were included in the study...

Cardiac hypertrophy is a compensatory mechanism maladapted because it presents an increase in the oxidative stress which could be associated with the development of the heart failure. A mechanism proposed is by mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) oxidation, which evolved to a vicious cycle because of the synthesis of proteins encoded in the genome is committed. Therefore, the aim of the present work was to evaluate the mtDNA damage and enzyme repairing the 8-oxo-deoxyguanosine glycosylase mitochondrial isoform 1-2a (OGG1-2a) in the early stage of compensated cardiac hypertrophy induced by abdominal aortic constriction (AAC)...

Reports on the contribution of aortic forward (Pf) and backward (Pb) wave pressures to age-related increases in central aortic pulse pressure (PPc) have been confounded by the use of participants receiving antihypertensive therapy. We assessed the relative contribution of Pf and Pb to age-related increases in PPc (radial applanation tonometry and SphygmoCor software using an assumed triangular wave for wave separation analysis) in 892 community participants not receiving antihypertensive therapy. We validated our results using aortic flow waves (echocardiography) for wave separation analysis in 254 of these participants...

The purpose of the study was to compare the acute effects of water-based resistance-aerobic (RA) and aerobic-resistance (AR) sequences on systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and mean blood pressure (MBP) in young women. Thirteen active women participated in four sessions: (1) exercises familiarization, (2) aquatic maximal test to determine the heart rate (HR) corresponding to the anaerobic threshold (HRAT), (3) concurrent protocol RA, and (4) concurrent protocol AR. Both protocols were initiated with the blood pressure measurements at rest in supine position...

High dietary sodium intake can lead to hypertension and increased incidence of cardiovascular disease. We sought to determine the effect of short-term dietary sodium loading on central blood pressure and arterial stiffness in young (YG; 22-40 years) and middle-aged (MA; 41-60 years) normotensive adults. YG (n = 49; age: 27 ± 1 years) and MA (n = 36; age: 52 ± 1 years) subjects were randomized, in a cross-over design, to 7 days of low-sodium (LS; 20 mmol/d) or high-sodium (HS; 300 mmol/d) diet...

Pulmonary vascular adventitia serves as a key regulator of pulmonary vascular remodeling in the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH). Excessive proliferation and differentiation of pulmonary adventitial fibroblasts (PAFs) are proven to be crucial in the pathogenesis of PAH. Galectin-3 (Gal-3) is known as a key fibroblasts activating factor which is involved in the fibrogenesis of several diseases, such as pulmonary fibrosis, vascular fibrosis, and heart failure. Therefore, we seek to investigate the potential role of Gal-3 in regulating PAF cells in the pathogenesis of PAH...

Current guidelines on hypertension treatment in chronic kidney disease (CKD) patients discourage combined angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (ACEi) and angiotensin II receptor blocker (ARB) use due to the risk of an increased kidney function decline. However, dual compared to single renin-angiotensin system (RAS) blockade may have more efficacy with regard to hypertension and proteinuria. Among incident predialysis patients (CKD 4-5), we compared dual with no or single RAS blockade regarding kidney function decline and risk of renal replacement therapy (RRT) or death...

We evaluated the contribution of tumor necrosis factor-α receptor 1 (TNFR1) to ethanol-induced hypertension and vascular oxidative stress and the possible role of perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT) in such responses. Male C57BL/6 wild-type (WT) or TNFR1-deficient mice (TNFR1(-/-)) were treated with ethanol (20% vol/vol) for 12 weeks. Ethanol induced an increase in blood pressure in WT mice and TNFR1(-/-) at 4 and 5 weeks of treatment, respectively. Treatment with ethanol increased tumor necrosis factor-α and interleukin-6 levels in aortas with or without PVAT (PVAT+ and PVAT-, respectively) from WT mice, but not TNFR1(-/-)...

Inhibition of sodium glucose cotransporter 2 with empagliflozin results in caloric loss by increasing urinary glucose excretion and has a mild diuretic effect. Diuretic effects are usually associated with reflex-mediated increases in sympathetic tone, whereas caloric loss is associated with decreased sympathetic tone. In an open-label trial, muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA) (burst frequency, burst incidence, and total MSNA) was assessed using microneurography performed off-treatment and on day 4 of treatment with empagliflozin 25 mg once daily in 22 metformin-treated patients with type II diabetes (mean [range] age 54 [40-65] years)...

Preeclampsia, a disease mainly manifesting as serious hypertension during pregnancy, affects expectant mothers around the globe. Celastrol, a naturally existing triterpenoid, is known to exhibit beneficial effects attenuating cardiovascular symptoms including hypertension. We here assessed the treatment outcome against preeclampsia with a combined use of celastrol and nifedipine. A total of 626 patients with preeclampsia were enrolled, screened, and assigned by random to groups receiving either nifedipine + placebo or nifedipine + celastrol orally...

An increased interarm systolic blood pressure (SBP) difference of ≥10 mm Hg is associated with increased cardiovascular risk and a difference of ≥15 mm Hg with increased cerebrovascular risk. The stroke population presents a high-risk group for future cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events and therefore estimation of interarm SBP difference as a predictive tool may assist with further secondary stroke prevention. The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of interarm SBP and diastolic blood pressure difference in a post-stroke population...

Subclinical vitamin K deficiency is prevalent among renal transplant recipients and is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease. However, the association between vitamin K supplementation and improvement of arterial stiffness has not been explored in the renal transplant population. The KING trial (vitamin K2 In reNal Graft) is a single-arm study that evaluated the association between the change in vitamin K status and indices of arterial stiffness following 8 weeks of menaquinone-7 (vitamin K2) supplementation (360 μg once daily) among renal transplant recipients (n = 60)...

In 2015, the US Preventive Services Task Force updated their hypertension recommendations to advise that adults with elevated office blood pressure (BP) undergo out-of-office BP measurement to exclude white coat hypertension before diagnosis. Our goal was to determine the most important barriers to primary care providers' ordering ambulatory and home BP monitoring in the United States. We enrolled 63 primary care providers into nominal group panels in which participants iteratively listed and ranked barriers to ambulatory and home BP monitoring...
