We examined in 11 young subjects (age 29.7±3.6 years, mean±SEM) whether carotid baroreceptor stimulation via the neck chamber device may affect central venous pressure (CVP), thus potentially involving other reflexogenic areas in the examined responses. Application of progressively greater neck chamber subatmospheric pressures caused a progressive lengthening in RR interval, which reached a peak at the maximal value of negative neck chamber pressure applied. This was accompanied by significant a...

AIM We sought to assess the long-term changes in aortic root diameter in a population-based sample, focusing on new-onset aortic root dilatation, as well as on the demographic and clinical variables independently related to this dynamic process. METHODS A total of 1122 participants with measurable echocardiographic parameters at baseline and after a 10-year follow-up were included in the analysis. Sex-specific upper limits of normality for absolute aortic root diameter, aortic root diameter inde...

BACKGROUND Neuroadrenergic overdrive occurs in obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS). However, the small sample size of the microneurographic studies, heterogeneity of the patients examined, presence of comorbidities, represented major weaknesses not allowing to precisely define the main features of the phenomenon, particularly in nonobese patients. OBJECTIVE This meta-analysis evaluated 850 participants recruited in 26 microneurographic studies, based on muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSN...

The Working Group on Uric Acid and Cardiovascular Risk of the Italian Society of Hypertension conceived and designed an ad hoc study aimed at searching for prognostic cut-off values of serum uric acid (SUA) in predicting combined (fatal and non-fatal) cerebrovascular (CBV) events in the whole database. The URic acid Right for heArt Health study is a nationwide, multicenter, observational cohort study involving data on subjects aged 18-95 years recruited on a regional community basis from all the...

The sympathetic nervous system is known to play a pivotal role in the short- and long-term regulation of different cardiovascular functions. In recent decades, increasing evidence has demonstrated that sympathetic neural influences are involved not only in the vasomotor modulation of small resistance arteries but also in the control of large arteries. Sympathetic activity and vascular function, which are key factors in the pathophysiology and prognosis of cardiovascular disease, are linked by a ...

Whether blood pressure (BP) values differ when BP is measured with or without the presence of a doctor (attended and unattended BP measurements) is controversial, and no information exists on wheth...

BACKGROUND Chronic kidney disease (CKD) is characterized by a pronounced sympathetic overactivity as documented by the marked increase in muscle sympathetic nerve traffic (MSNA) and in plasma norepinephrine reported in this condition. Whether and to what extent in CKD heart rate (HR) reflects the adrenergic overdrive remains undefined. It is also undefined the relative validity of the different adrenergic markers in reflecting renal dysfunction. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 82 CKD patients, aged 58....

INTRODUCTION Among the observational studies performed in the area of blood pressure measurements in the population the Pressioni Arteriose Monitorate E Loro Associazioni (PAMELA) investigation represents an unique research for a number of reasons. EVIDENCE ACQUISITION AND SYNTHESIS The PAMELA study combines clinic, home and 24-hour blood pressure measurements in all partiicipants, which were representative of the general population. Examination included metabolic variables, allowing us to deter...

AIM Available evidence on regression of left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy in patients with primary aldosteronism after unilateral adrenalectomy is scanty. We performed a systematic meta-analysis of echocardiographic studies to provide an updated and comprehensive information on this issue. METHODS The PubMed, OVID-MEDLINE and Cochrane library databases were analyzed to search English-language articles published from 1 January 1990 up to 30 June 2020. Studies were identified by using MeSH terms a...
