Adolescents with chronic kidney disease (CKD) are a unique population with a high prevalence of hypertension. Management of hypertension during the transition from adolescence to adulthood can be challenging given differences in normative blood pressure values in adolescents compared with adults. In this retrospective analysis of the Chronic Kidney Disease in Children Cohort Study, we compared pediatric versus adult definitions of ambulatory- and clinic-diagnosed hypertension in their ability to...

Consensus blood pressure guidelines vary in their recommended ambulatory blood pressure targets for children with chronic kidney disease (CKD) because of limited research in this area. We analyzed longitudinal ambulatory blood pressure monitoring data from 679 children with moderate CKD enrolled in the observational CKiD (Chronic Kidney Disease in Children) cohort by time-varying mean arterial pressure (MAP) percentile categories based on the highest wake or sleep MAP percentile. Analyses were s...

Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) monitoring is the accepted standard to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension. Although adult guidelines use absolute BP cut points to define ambulatory hypertension, current pediatric guidelines define it based on sex- and height-specific 95th percentiles and BP loads. To examine the association of different ambulatory BP parameters with hypertensive target organ injury, we compared adult and pediatric cut points and assessed the utility of BP load as a predictor o...

Hypertension (HTN) is common in children and often associated with pathologic progression to end organ damage, specifically left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH). The primary goal of this retrospective chart review is to determine if patients with higher blood pressure were more likely to complete echocardiogram (ECHO) and more likely to have LVH, among a pediatric population referred for hypertension evaluation before the 2017 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) guidelines. To meet this goal, the...

Abstract Background Kidney disease has historically been the primary source of early mortality in adults with tuberous sclerosis complex (TSC). Kidney imaging surveillance promotes early detection of lesions requiring intervention. We describe kidney imaging frequency in relationship to patient-level characteristics for commercially insured patients with TSC in the United States. Methods This retrospective observational study used 2003-2016 enrollment and claims data from a de-identified fully-i...

Abstract Rationale & Objective To identify differences in socioeconomic factors (SES) and subclinical CVD markers by race among CKiD participants and determine whether differences in CVD markers persist after adjusting for SES. Study Design Analysis of 3103 visits with repeated measures from 628 children (497 Caucasian; 131 African American) enrolled in the CKiD study. Setting & Participants Children with mild-moderate CKD with at least 1 CV parameter (ambulatory blood pressure, left ventricular...

Ambulatory BP (ABP) is increasingly used to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension. Pediatric but not adult guidelines consider BP load (% readings above 95th%ile) in risk-stratification of the ABP ...
