Hypertensive urgencies-emergencies are important and common events. They are defined as a severe elevation in BP, higher than 180/120 mmHg, associated or not with the evidence of new or worsening organ damage for emergencies and urgencies respectively. Anamnestic information, physical examination and instrumental evaluation determine the following management that could need oral (for urgencies) or intravenous (for emergencies) anti-hypertensives drugs. The choice of the specific drugs depend on the underlying causes of the crisis, patient's demographics, cardiovascular risk and comorbidities...

Context: Pheochromocytomas are hormone secreting tumors of the medulla of the adrenal glands found in 0.1-0.5% of patients with hypertension. The vast majority of pheochromocytomas secrete catecholamines, but they have been occasionally shown to also secrete interleukins, calcitonin, testosterone, and in rare cases adrenocorticotropic hormone. Pheochromocytoma crisis is a life threatening event in which high levels of catecholamines cause a systemic reaction leading to organ failure. Case Description: A 70-year-old man was admitted with acute myocardial ischemia following glucocorticoid administration as part of an endocrine workup for an adrenal mass...

BACKGROUND: Systemic sclerosis (SSc) has increased risk of morbidity and mortality due to pulmonary fibrosis, pulmonary arterial hypertension, renal crisis, infections and malignancies. Chemical exposure, smoking and cytotoxic drugs increase the malignancy risk in rheumatic diseases including SSc. We aim to evaluate characteristics, identify risk factors and mortality in SSc patients with malignancies. METHODS: One hundred and fifty-three patients with SSc (24 male, 129 female, with mean age of 56...

Traumatic brain injury can be defined as the most complex disease in the most complex organ. When an acute brain injury occurs, several pathophysiological cascades are triggered, leading to further exacerbation of the primary damage. A number of events potentially occurring after TBI can compromise the availability or utilization of energy substrates in the brain, ultimately leading to brain energy crisis. The frequent occurrence of secondary insults in the acute phase after TBI, such as intracranial hypertension, hypotension, hypoxia, hypercapnia, hyperthermia, seizures, can then increase cerebral damage, and adversely affect outcome...

Hypercalcemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism during pregnancy is a rare condition and associated with increased morbidity and mortality for the mother and the unborn child. Whereas parathyroidectomy is favored during the second trimester, no clear recommendations exist for its management during the third trimenon. We here report the case of a 26-year-old woman in the 29th week of her first pregnancy, who was admitted to our clinic with hypertension, intra-uterine growth retardation and polyhydramnios. Severe hypercalcemia due to primary hyperparathyroidism was diagnosed (total calcium 3...

The incidence of renal replacement therapy varies across countries. However, little is known about the epidemiology of chronic kidney disease (CKD) outcomes. Here we describe progression and mortality risk of patients with CKD but not on renal replacement therapy at outpatient nephrology clinics across Europe using individual data from nine CKD cohorts participating in the European CKD Burden Consortium. A joint model assessed the mean change in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and mortality risk simultaneously, thereby accounting for mortality risk when estimating eGFR decline and vice versa, while also correcting for the measurement error in eGFR...

Perioperative management of pulmonary hypertension remains one of the most challenging scenarios during cardiac surgery. It is associated with high morbidity and mortality due to right ventricular failure, arrhythmias, myocardial ischemia, and intractable hypoxia. Therefore, this review article is intended toward the anesthetic considerations in the perioperative period, with particular emphasis on the selection of technique and choice of anesthesia with maintenance, anesthetic drugs, and the recent intraoperative recommendations for prevention and treatment of pulmonary hypertensive crisis...

Obesity has emerged as an alarming health crisis due to its association with metabolic risk factors such as diabetes, dyslipidemia, and hypertension. Recent work has demonstrated the multifaceted roles of lncRNAs in regulating mouse adipose development, but their implication in human adipocytes remains largely unknown. Here we present a catalog of 3149 adipose active lncRNAs, of which 909 are specifically detected in brown adipose tissue (BAT) by performing deep RNA-seq on adult subcutaneous, omental white adipose tissue and fetal BATs...

Systemic sclerosis is classed as a diffuse (systemic) disease of connective tissue. It is a heterogeneous disease significantly shortening life expectancy. Its etiology is unknown. Pathogenetic interplay is assumed to involve a triad of pathological autoimmune inflammation, vasculopathy and fibrosis. Clinical manifestations can be classed based on the preponderant pathogenetic process. Vasculopathy is manifested by secondary Raynauds phenomenon with abnormal findings on the nailfold capillaroscopy, skin telangiectasias, gastric antral vascular ectasia, life threatening scleroderma renal crisis, digital ulcerations and prognostically severe pulmonary arterial hypertension...

We present a 30+2-weeks-old (30 weeks and 2 days) male, twin 1, born by emergency caesarean section due to twin-twin transfusion syndrome (absent end-diastolic flow and cardiac anomaly in twin 2) presenting with hypertensive crisis on day 3. He was already on milrinone and propranolol. His echocardiogram showed poor left ventricular contractility and after cardiology consultation received sodium nitroprusside, which eventually saved his life by decreasing his blood pressure and improving cardiac function. As sodium nitroprusside is very rarely used for hypertensive crisis in neonates, we would like to share our experiences on dosage, challenges in administration due to its fast onset of action, criteria for monitoring for complications and finally weaning...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Phenelzine is an antidepressant drug increasing the risk of hypertensive crisis when dietary tyramine is not restricted. However, this monoamine oxidase (MAO) inhibitor is known to inhibit other enzymes not limited to the nervous system. We studied whether its antiadipogenic and antilipogenic effects in cultured adipocytes could contribute to a mitigation of fattening without unwanted hypertensive or cardiovascular effects. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH: Mice were fed a standard chow and subjected to a 0...
