: The objective of the present study was to evaluate clinical implications of serum uric acid (UA) on the progression of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in hypertensive patients. A total of 1009 adult patients with left ventricular hypertrophy and suspected left ventricular diastolic dysfunction were enrolled at our hospital from January 2008 to December 2011. With a median follow-up of 7.2 years, 136 (13.2%) patients developed new-onset HFpEF and 151 (15.0%) had major adverse cardiovascular events (MACEs). Compared with the lowest UA tertile of UA ( 367 μmol L-1 ) had a higher risk of developing new-onset HFpEF (HR: 1.761, 95% CI: 1.119-2.772, P = .015) as well as MACEs (HR: 1.664, 95% CI: 1.086-2.547, P = .019). Our findings indicate that hyperuricemia is associated with detrimental effects in terms of the incidence of new-onset HFpEF as well as MACEs in hypertensive patient.

The relation between uric acid (UA) and heart failure has been described; however, there is little detail concerning acute heart failure (AHF) in patients with reduced versus preserved ejection fraction heart failure (HFrEF, HFpEF). We studied 324 consecutive AHF patients screened from interventional Diur-HF Trial (NCT01441245) from January 2011 to February 2016, and divided into HFrEF (EF

Abstract Today there is plausible evidence both on experimental and epidemiological basis, that hyperuricemia represents a risk factor for the development and progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Nevertheless, the role of serum uric acid lowering treatment in CKD is still a matter of serious controversy. Review of randomised controlled trials, suggests that there may be an improvement of renal function with allopurinol treatment in CKD stage 3–5. However, these studies have included a re...

Abstract Longstanding hypertension ultimately leads to heart failure (HF), and, as a consequence most patients with HF have a history of hypertension. Conversely, absence of hypertension in middle age is associated with lower risks for incident HF across the remaining life course. Cardiac remodeling to a predominant pressure overload consists of diastolic dysfunction and concentric left ventricular (LV) hypertrophy. When pressure overload is sustained, diastolic dysfunction progresses, filling o...

Background Among central and peripheral factors contributing to exercise intolerance (EI) in heart failure (HF), the extent to which skeletal muscle (SM) energy metabolic abnormalities occur and contribute to EI and increased fatigability in HF patients with reduced or preserved ejection fraction (HFrEF and HFpEF, respectively) are not known. An energetic plantar flexion exercise fatigability test and magnetic resonance spectroscopy were used to probe the mechanistic in vivo relationships among ...

Abstract Epidemiological studies indicate that hyperuricaemia is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Alongside uric acid formation, increased xanthine oxidase activity also results in the formation of oxidative free radicals and superoxide particles. Oxidative stress significantly contributes to the development of cardiovascular disease, including endothelial cell dysfunction, atherosclerosis, vascular calcification and impaired myocardial energetics. Allopurinol, a competitiv...

BACKGROUND: The association between serum uric acid (SUA) and left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) is controversial and the ability of SUA in predicting incident LVH remains unsettled. Thus, we evaluated the relationship of SUA with new-onset echocardiographic LVH over a 10-year period in subjects of the general population enrolled in the Pressioni Arteriose Monitorate E Loro Associazioni (PAMELA) study. METHODS: The study included 960 subjects with normal LV mass index (LVMI) at baseline echocard...

Effect of hydrochlorothiazide in addition to telmisartan/amlodipine combination for treating hypertensive patients uncontrolled with telmisartan/amlodipine: a randomized, double-blind study
Aims Heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) has a great epidemiological burden. The pathophysiological role of cyclic guanosine monophosphate (cGMP) signalling has been intensively investigated in HFpEF. Elevated levels of cGMP have been shown to exert cardioprotective effects in various cardiovascular diseases, including diabetic cardiomyopathy. We investigated the effect of long-term preventive application of the phosphodiesterase-5A (PDE5A) inhibitor vardenafil in diabetic car...

Aims A considerable proportion of hospitalized patients for acute decompensated heart failure will be readmitted or die in short-term follow-up. In the present study, we aimed to assess the role of admission sodium (Na) and uric acid (UA) levels in the prediction of 30 day post-discharge heart failure readmission or all-cause mortality in advanced heart failure patients admitted with acute decompensation. Methods and results One hundred and forty consecutive advanced heart failure patients who w...

Hyperuricemia is related to an increased risk of cardiovascular events from a meta-analysis and antihyperuricemia agents may influence to cardiac function. We evaluated the effect of febuxostat on echocardiographic parameters of diastolic function in patients with asymptomatic hyperuricemia as a prespecified endpoint in the subanalysis of the PRIZE study. Patients in the PRIZE study were assigned randomly to either add-on febuxostat treatment group or control group with only appropriate lifestyl...

Studies on the association of uric acid with mortality and cardiovascular outcomes in patients with hypertension have produced contradictory results. The objective of this meta-analysis was to evaluate the prognostic utility of uric acid in hypertensive patients. We comprehensively searched PubMed and Embase databases (until July 31, 2020) to identify eligible studies that reported the association of uric acid with mortality and cardiovascular outcomes in hypertensive patients. Outcome measures ...

This paper highlights the cardioprotective potential of sodium-glucose cotransporter 2 inhibitors (SLGT2i), as well as several most discussed mechanisms responsible for their cardioprotection. Cardiovascular diseases are considered a primary cause of death in nearly 80% of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) patients, with a 2-4-fold greater incidence of heart failure (HF) among diabetics. As novel hypoglycemics, SGLT2i showed exceptional cardiovascular benefits, reflected through robust reductions ...

AIMS: Reactive oxygen species are reportedly involved in the mechanism underlying heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF); however, the disease pathophysiology remains poorly understood. Xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR), the rate-limiting enzyme of purine metabolism, plays an important role in uric acid production and generates reactive oxygen species. However, the impact of plasma XOR activity on the clinical outcomes of patients with HFpEF remains unclear. The aim of this study was...

: Both hypertension and hyperuricemia are closely associated with the morbidity and mortality of heart failure. This study was designed to evaluate the influences of long-term xanthine oxidase inhibitor (febuxostat) prescription on left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), left ventricular (LV) diastolic function, and new-onset heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) in these patients. Using a propensity score matching of 1:2 ratio, this retrospective claims database study compared febu...

Intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a catastrophic stroke with high mortality, and the mechanism underlying ICH is largely unknown. Previous studies have shown that high serum uric acid (SUA) levels are an independent risk factor for hypertension, cardiovascular disease (CVD), and ischemic stroke. However, our metabolomics data showed that SUA levels were lower in recurrent intracerebral hemorrhage (R-ICH) patients than in ICH patients, indicating that lower SUA might contribute to ICH. In this st...

Abstract Elevated serum uric acid (UA) is associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and worse clinical outcome in patients with cardiovascular disease. Nevertheless, the prognostic value of serum UA level in hospitalized heart failure patients with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) has not been fully elucidated. The aim of this study was to investigate whether serum UA level on admission could be associated with subsequent mortality in hospitalized patients with HFpEF. We exa...
