The clinical significance of detecting early atherosclerosis is now widely recognized. Measurement methods available at present are usually not suitable for use in primary care where rapid screening for a large population is needed. The Arterial Velocity-pulse Index (AVI) and Arterial Pressure-volume Index (API) are new noninvasive arterial stiffness indices that can be rapidly measured using an oscillometric device. The purpose of this study was to determine whether high AVI and API values are predictive of early atherosclerosis prior to the onset of obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD)...

BACKGROUND: Simultaneous measurement of four-limb blood pressures can improve the accuracy of cardiovascular disease diagnosis. This study aims to investigate the association of simultaneously measured four-limb blood pressures with cardiovascular function as the non-invasive diagnostic method of cardiovascular disease in primary care. METHODS: 229 subjects (62 males, mean age, 63.50 ± 11.13 years; 167 females, mean age, 59.47 ± 7.33 years) were enrolled...

A pocket-size cuffless electronic device for self-measurement of blood pressure (BP) has been developed (Freescan, Maisense Inc., Zhubei, Taiwan). The device estimates BP within 10 s using three embedded electrodes and one force sensor that is applied over the radial pulse to evaluate the pulse wave. Before use, basic anthropometric characteristics are recorded on the device, and individualized initial calibration is required based on a standard BP measurement performed using an upper-arm BP monitor. The device performance in providing valid BP readings was evaluated in 313 normotensive and hypertensive adults in three study phases during which the device sensor was upgraded...

INTRODUCTION: Blood pressure (BP) regulation is important in patients with carotid artery atherosclerotic disease. Concomitant subclavian artery stenosis (SAS) might lead to an underestimation of the true systemic BP in the monitoring of these patients. This study aimed to assess the prevalence of the inter-arm BP difference in patients undergoing carotid intervention and its association with ipsilateral significant subclavian stenosis and clinical outcome. METHODS: Bilateral BP measurements and vascular imaging (CTA and MRA) of both subclavian arteries and the innominate artery were assessed in 182 symptomatic patients with carotid artery stenosis undergoing revascularisation in the International Carotid Stenting Study (ICSS)...

Dietary supplementation with inorganic nitrate (NO3(-)) has been shown to induce a multitude of advantageous cardiovascular and metabolic responses during rest and exercise. While there is some suggestion that pharmacokinetics may differ depending on the NO3(-) source ingested, to the best of our knowledge this has yet to be determined experimentally. Here, we compare the plasma pharmacokinetics of NO3(-), nitrite (NO2(-)), and total nitroso species (RXNO) following oral ingestion of either NO3(-) rich beetroot juice (BR) or chard gels (GEL) with the associated changes in blood pressure (BP)...

Inter-arm systolic blood pressure (BP) differences (sIADs) have recently been recognized as a risk factor for cardiovascular mortality. However, sIAD reproducibility remains unresolved from a controlled trial perspective. We evaluated the between-visit reproducibility of sIADs in hypertensive patients. We examined 1875 hypertensive participants aged 20 years and older (mean age: 62.3 years, 45.4% female) from nine primary clinics and 27 secondary and tertiary hospitals. The BPs in both arms were automatically and simultaneously measured in triplicate with a cuff-oscillometric BP device...

BACKGROUND: Various prevalence figures have been reported for inter-arm differences in blood pressure (IAD); variation may be explained by differing population vascular risk and by measurement method. AIM: To review the literature to derive robust estimates of IAD prevalence relevant to community populations. DESIGN AND SETTING: Systematic review and meta-analysis. METHOD: MEDLINE, Embase, and CINAHL were searched for cross-sectional studies likely to represent general or primary care populations, reporting prevalence of IAD and employing a simultaneous method of measurement...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate differences in blood pressure variability (BPV) between patients who experience a recurrent (secondary) stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA) compared with patients who do not have recurrent stroke. DESIGN AND METHOD: Data were extracted from the ALLHAT and ASCOT-BPLA databases. BPV was defined as the within-subject standard deviation of systolic BP measurements across visits from 12-weeks (or 3-months [84 days]) onwards. BPV was analyzed using a generalized linear model with terms for treatment, prior stroke, interaction between treatment group and prior stroke, and baseline systolic BP...

OBJECTIVE: Inter-arm systolic blood pressure (IASBP) differences ≥10 mmHg are associated with increased cardiovascular risk. Prevalence of IASBP differences is unclear given that studies are mainly in diseased populations and vary in measurement technique (sequential vs simultaneous recording). Moreover, no studies have determined whether dominant or non-dominant arm influences calculated central aortic blood pressure. The purpose of this study was to examine the prevalence of IASBP differences measured at the brachial artery and calculated at the aorta in community dwelling adults...

OBJECTIVE: The type and level of sex steroids influence blood pressure (BP). It has been suggested that functional brain asymmetries may be influenced by sex hormones. In addition, there are inter-arm differences in BP not yet related with handedness. In this study, we hypothesize a possible association between sex hormones, handedness, and inter-arm differences in blood pressure. METHODS: To analyze this hypothesis, we measured BP in the left and right arm of the left and right handed adult young men and women in menstrual and ovulatory phase and calculated their mean arterial pressure (MAP)...

Inter-arm blood pressure (BP) difference has been associated with ischemic stroke. Local atherosclerosis of stroke differ among vulnerable individuals, whereas intracranial arterial stenosis (ICAS) is more frequently affected Asians, and extracranial arterial stenosis (ECAS) is more prevalent among whites. We hereby sought to explore the association of inter-arm BP difference with ICAS and ECAS in stroke-free hypertensive patients in Chinese population. All the 885 subjects were evaluated of ICAS and ECAS through computerized tomographic angiography...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: We investigated the inter-arm difference in blood pressure of the general Korean population to identify associated factors. SUBJECTS AND METHODS: A total of 806 participants aged 30 to 64 years without history of major cardiovascular disease were analyzed in this cross-sectional study. They participated in the Cardiovascular and Metabolic Disease Etiology Research Center cohort study that began in 2013. Brachial blood pressure was measured simultaneously for both arms using an automated oscillometric device equipped with two cuffs in seated position...

The inter-arm systolic blood pressure difference (SBPD) is recommended to be in relation to potential cardiovascular disease (CVD). Previous studies yielded controversial results about the association between an inter-arm SBPD ≥ 10 mmHg or ≥15 mmHg and the risk of cardiovascular mortality. Therefore, we conducted this meta-analysis to investigate this association. We searched PubMed and Embase databases through December 31, 2014, and examined the references of retrieved articles to identify relevant cohort studies...

BACKGROUND: Bilateral systolic blood pressure (SBP) differences > 10mmHg is a common finding in clinical practice. Such BP differences in older individuals are associated with peripheral vascular disease, linked to microvascular dysfunction. Investigating retinal vessel calibres could provide insight into systemic microvascular function and may predict cardiovascular outcomes. Therefore we investigated the link between inter-arm systolic blood pressure differences (IASBPD) and the retinal microvasculature to determine the usefulness of IASBPD as an early marker of microvascular changes...
