BACKGROUND Several antihypertensive drugs are available for the primary prevention of cardiovascular disease (CVD). However, existing evidence on prescription patterns was primarily generated among patients at high CVD risk with short-term follow-up, and failed to capture impacts of time and patient characteristics. Our objective was therefore to describe longitudinal prescription patterns for antihypertensive drugs for the primary prevention of CVD among patients with arterial hypertension in t...

BACKGROUND Low-cost, automated interventions that increase knowledge and skills around diet and lifestyle modifications are recommended for cardiovascular disease risk reduction. METHODS We initiated a quality improvement program to assess the impact of a web-based diet and lifestyle intervention utilizing short animated videos in adults with high blood pressure (BP) at a primary care clinic in Saudi Arabia. We enrolled adults with elevated BP, not on BP medications, who were identified using th...

Background null The in utero pathologies underlying the link between preterm birth and offspring high blood pressure (BP) are still unknown. We investigated the prospective association of placental histopathological findings among preterm births with childhood BP. null Methods null Our prospective birth cohort included 546 mother-child pairs with preterm birth enrolled from 1999 to 2013 at the Boston Medical Center. Early preterm birth was defined as gestational age between 23 and 34 weeks. We h...

PURPOSE Previous studies have shown benefits of thirty-minute outpatient blood pressure (OBP-30) but did not report on race and gender. The purpose of this study was to determine if similar effects are seen in a diverse urban population. METHODS Patients with diabetes and/or cardiovascular disease (age 18-89) were invited to participate. Patients were roomed, and blood pressure was measured using standard procedure (SOBP). Patients were left alone in an exam room connected to an automated office...

BACKGROUND: Blood pressure (BP) control was only 43.7% in the National Health and Nutrition Survey (NHANES) survey in 2017-2018. Scalable, non-clinic-based strategies to control BP are needed. We therefore conducted a pilot trial of a text-messaging intervention in a national network of retail outlet health kiosks with BP devices. All study procedures were conducted remotely. METHODS: Eligible individuals (N=140), based on average BP >140/90 mmHg at kiosks during the prior year, were randomized ...

BACKGROUND Whether in populations with prevalent volume-dependent primary hypertension, concentric left ventricular (LV) remodelling beyond hypertrophy (LVH) represents the impact of a pressure rather than a volume overload, is unclear. METHODS Using central arterial pressure, and aortic velocity and diameter measurements in the outflow tract and echocardiography, we determined the factors that associate with concentric LVH or remodelling in the LV short axis in a community of African ancestry (...
