Purpose null Pheochromocytoma, a catecholamine-secreting tumour leading to neurological and cardiovascular life-threatening conditions through hypertension crisis, occurs in 0.1-0.5% of hypertensive patients, but it is extremely rare in pregnancy (0.0018-0.006%). Some classes of drugs, even commonly used in pregnancy, can trigger catecholamine secretion, precipitating the clinical situation. null Materials and methods and results null We report a 33-year-old woman, gravida 2 para 1, with previou...

PURPOSE Isometric exercise (IE) has been shown to reduce resting systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) in adults. However, no one to date has determined whether true inter-individual response differences (IIRD) versus random variability exist with respect to IE and resting SBP and DBP in adults ≥18 years of age. The purpose of the current study was to address this gap. METHODS AND MATERIALS Using the meta-analytic approach, randomised controlled trials from a recent me...

PURPOSE There has been limited evidence for the association between socioeconomic status (SES) and arterial stiffness. This study was performed to investigate the association between household income and brachial pulse pressure (PP) in the general Korean population. MATERIALS AND METHODS This study was based on data acquired in the 2018 Korea National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (2018 KNHANES). A total of 13004 subjects at the age of 20 years or older analysed. The information on mon...

PURPOSE We investigated continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) adherence and its association with the blood pressure (BP) and pulse rate changes in patients with obstructive sleep apnoea syndrome (OSAS) and hypertension. MATERIALS AND METHODS In a single-blind trial, patients were randomly assigned to CPAP or sham CPAP treatment for 3 months. We performed clinic, ambulatory and home BP measurements at baseline and during follow-up. CPAP adherence was assessed as the CPAP frequency per week a...

Background: Acute increases of high blood pressure values, usually described as 'hypertensive crises', 'hypertensive urgencies' or 'hypertensive emergencies', are common causes of patients' presentation to emergency departments. Owing to the lack of ad hoc randomized clinical trials, current recommendations/suggestions for treatment of these patients are not evidenced-based and, therefore, the management of acute increases of blood pressure values represent a clinical challenge. However, an impr...

Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) is a convenient way to assess out-of-office blood pressure control and is recommended by numerous international guidelines to aid clinicians in the diagnosis and management of essential hypertension. Although available guidelines recommend the use of HBPM in patients receiving antihypertensive medication, their specific recommendations regarding optimal monitoring schedule, duration, and clinician interpretation of home blood pressure readings may differ amo...

BACKGROUND Ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) is increasingly recommended for clinical use, but more knowledge about the prevalence and variability in ABPM-derived phenotypes in the general population is needed. We describe these parameters in the community-based Swedish CArdioPulmonary bioImage Study (SCAPIS) cohort. METHODS We examined 5881 men and women aged 50-64 with 24-hour ABPM recordings using validated monitors. ABPM phenotypes were defined according to European guidelines. Whi...

Background and aims High blood pressure is the heritable risk factor for cardiovascular diseases. We investigated whether the presence of familial genetic and environmental risk factors are associated with increased risk of high blood pressure. Methods A total of 4,559 individuals from 401 families were included in this study. Familial aggregation analysis was carried out on systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), body mass index (BMI) and waist circumference (WC), and her...

PURPOSE We tested the sex-specific associations between primary aldosteronism (PA), left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy and LV systolic myocardial function. MATERIAL AND METHODS Conventional and speckle tracking echocardiography was performed in 109 patients with PA and 89 controls with essential hypertension (EH). LV hypertrophy was identified if LV mass index exceeded 47.0 g/m2.7 in women and 50.0 g/m2.7 in men. LV systolic myocardial function was assessed by global longitudinal strain (GLS) and...
