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...

OBJECTIVE The aim was to compare short-term and long-term reproducibilities of in-office unattended blood pressure (BP), namely automated office blood pressure (AOBP), conventionally measured attended office BP, and self-measured home BP. METHODS A multicentre, clinical study was conducted in Japan, and 287 Japanese outpatients on antihypertensive drug medication were followed-up for 1 year. RESULTS The intensity of drug treatment was sustained consistently throughout the study period (defined d...

BACKGROUND It remains unclear whether the cardiovascular consequences of arterial stiffness differ by sex. This study aimed to investigate the sex-specific association of brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) with adverse cardiac remodeling and cardiovascular outcome. METHOD We studied 11 767 patients (57.6% men) with cardiovascular risk factors, whose baPWV was measured. The primary endpoint was composite cardiovascular events. Restricted cubic spline (RCS) analyses were performed to delin...

Objectives null Ambulatory blood pressure (BP) control is worse in men compared with women with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and this may partially explain the faster CKD progression in men. This is the first study investigating possible sex differences in prevalence, control and phenotypes of hypertension in kidney transplant recipients (KTRs) with office-BP and 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring (ABPM). null Methods null This cross-sectional study included 136 male and 69 female stable KTRs who und...

Background null Poor adherence to treatment is a major health issue in hypertension. The large number of drugs to be detected limits the implementation of chemical adherence testing by liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS). AcSDKP, a peptide accumulating in the presence of angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor (ACEI) treatment, has been validated as a proven marker of adherence by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Our aim was to validate urine measurements of AcSDKP compared with...

OBJECTIVE Blood pressure fluctuates during diastole to create a dicrotic wave but the mechanistic origin remains poorly understood. We sought to investigate the characteristics and determinants of diastolic pressure and flow fluctuations with a focus on stiffness gradients between the central aorta and peripheral arteries. METHODS Using applanation tonometry and duplex ultrasound, pulse waveforms were recorded on the femoral artery in 592 patients (age: 55 ± 14 years) to estimate the diastolic p...
