The relative importance of various blood pressure indices on cardiovascular risk in people with type 2 diabetes mellitus has not been established. This study compares the strengths of the associations between different baseline blood pressure variables (systolic blood pressure [SBP], diastolic blood pressure [DBP], pulse pressure [PP], and mean arterial pressure) and the 4.3-year risk of major cardiovascular events in the Action in Diabetes and Vascular Disease: Preterax and Diamicron-Modified Release Controlled Evaluation Study. Mean (SD) age for the 11 140 participants was 65.8 years (6.4 years). During follow-up, 1000 major cardiovascular events, 559 major coronary events, and 468 cardiovascular deaths were recorded. After adjustment for age, sex, and treatment allocation, the hazard ratios (95% CIs) associated with 1 increment in SD for the risk of major cardiovascular events were 1.17 (1.10 to 1.24) for SBP; 1.20 (1.13 to 1.28) for PP; 1.12 (1.05 to 1.19) for mean arterial pressure; and 1.04 (0.98 to 1.11) for DBP. The areas under the receiver operating characteristic curve were slightly higher for SBP and PP compared with mean arterial pressure and DBP for major cardiovascular and coronary events. Using achieved instead of baseline blood pressure values marginally improved the effect estimates for SBP, DBP, and mean arterial pressure, with no significant differences in the areas under the receiver operating characteristic curve between models with SBP and those with PP. In conclusion, SBP and PP are the 2 best and DBP is the least effective determinant of the risk of major cardiovascular outcomes in the relatively old patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus participating in the Action in Diabetes and Vascular Disease: Preterax and Diamicron-Modified Release Controlled Evaluation Study. However, SBP may be the simplest and most useful predictor across a wider range of age groups and populations.

Background— The utility of single versus combined blood pressure (BP) components in predicting cardiovascular disease (CVD) events is not established. We compared systolic BP (SBP) and diastolic BP (DBP) versus pulse pressure (PP) and mean arterial pressure (MAP) combined and each of these 4 BP components alone in predicting CVD events. Methods and Results— In participants in the original (n=4760) and offspring (n=4897) Framingham Heart Study who were free of CVD events and BP-lowering therapy, ...

Background Ageing is characterized by a decreased functional reserve, a concept defined as homeostenosis. We assessed the impact of long-term exposure to the average value (mean) or to the variability (coefficient of variation) of fasting glycaemia, body mass index (BMI) and pulse pressure on total mortality in a cohort of type 2 diabetic patients. Methods Fasting glycaemia, BMI and pulse pressure values were collected over a period of 3 years in 1 319 type 2 diabetic patients who were subsequen...

The microcirculation is generally taken to include the smallest arteries, the arterioles, capillaries, and venules.1,2 Exchange of gases, nutrients, and metabolites between the blood and tissues occurs almost exclusively in the microcirculation, and adequate perfusion via the microcirculatory network is essential for the integrity of tissue and organ function. Our aim in the present article is to bring together recent clinical and experimental research indicating that inadequate perfusion may un...

Background: In patients with type 2 diabetes, the effects of intensive glucose control on vascular outcomes remain uncertain. Methods: We randomly assigned 11,140 patients with type 2 diabetes to undergo either standard glucose control or intensive glucose control, defined as the use of gliclazide (modified release) plus other drugs as required to achieve a glycated hemoglobin value of 6.5% or less. Primary end points were composites of major macrovascular events (death from cardiovascular cause...

Objectives This study determines the predictive value of brachial pulse pressure for cardiovascular stroke and coronary mortality in a large population categorized by blood pressure level. Methods The population was composed of 69 989 subjects aged more than 50 years and divided into 'optimal', 'normal' and 'normal high' normotensive subjects, and grades 1, 2, 3 hypertensive subjects as defined in the 2003 European Guidelines for Management of Hypertension. Hazard ratios for mortality were evalu...

Increased arterial stiffness associated with diabetes and the metabolic syndrome may in part explain the increased cardiovascular disease risk observed in these conditions. Arterial stiffness can be estimated by quantifying pulse pressure but is better described by distensibility and compliance coefficients, pulse wave velocity and wave reflection. The most common non-invasive methodologies used to quantify these estimates of arterial stiffness (e.g. ultrasonography and applanation tonometry) ar...

For many years, the cyclic blood pressure (BP) curve was described exclusively from two specific points of this curve, the highest, called systolic blood pressure, and the lowest, called diastolic blood pressure, both dominating the basis of cardiovascular (CV) hypertensive epidemiology. Nowadays, it is largely admitted that the BP curve should be characterized from pulsatile arterial hemodynamics, thus leading to the definition of novel indices in CV epidemiology. The present chapter details th...

Identification of key factors associated with the risk of developing cardiovascular disease and quantification of this risk using multivariable prediction algorithms are among the major advances made in preventive cardiology and cardiovascular epidemiology in the 20th century. The ongoing discovery of new risk markers by scientists presents opportunities and challenges for statisticians and clinicians to evaluate these biomarkers and to develop new risk formulations that incorporate them. One of...

Residential mobility is linked to higher incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality. A mechanism by which residential relocation may impact health is through the disruption of social networks. To examine whether moving to a new city is associated with increased CVD risk and whether the extent to which movers rebuild their social network after relocating predicts improved CVD risk and psychosocial well-being, recent movers (n = 26), and age- and sex-matched nonmovers (n = 20) were fo...

Hypertension is a highly prevalent and causal risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Quantititaive cardiovascular risk assessment is a new paradigm for stratifying hypertensive patients into actionable groups for clinical management and prevention of CVD. The large heterogeneity in hypertensive patients makes this evaluation complex, but recent advances have made CV risk assessment more feasible. In this review, we first describe the prognostic significance of various levels and temporal ...

Diabetes mellitus is a common chronic disease. Dyslipidemia and hypertension are two complications that may develop in diabetic patients if hyperglycemia, insulin resistance, and weight gain are not controlled. This study investigated the effects of melatonin supplementation on some cardiovascular disease risk factors and anthropometric indices in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). In this double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled trial, 50 T2DM patients were randomly allocated to...

Previous researches demonstrate that mean arterial pressure (MAP) is associated with major cardiovascular events, but there are few research on the correlation between MAP and brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (BaPWV). Thus, the present study is designated to examine the association between MAP and BaPWV. Our study is a cross-sectional study in Japanese. They participated in a medical check-up program which included BaPWV and standardized questionnaires. The main measurements include systolic b...
Aim . To assess the effect of combination therapy (perindopril, indapamide, amlodipine) on vascular stiffness and endothelial function in patients with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Material and methods . Patients with HFpEF (n=30) were included in a nonrandomized, uncontrolled trial. All patients had a comprehensive examination: a six-minute walk test to determine exercise tolerance, echocardiography, determination of the diameter of the brachial artery with an assessm...

The study area was selected through multistage sampling technique covering six districts of West Bengal, a state located at the eastern part of India. 1400 participants were selected for the study. The participants were divided into four groups on the basis of menopausal status: early and late perimenopausal; early and late postmenopausal. Results shows that menopausal status was significantly a...
