: Hypertensive emergencies are those situations where very high blood pressure (BP) values are associated with acute organ damage, and therefore, require immediate, but careful, BP reduction. The type of acute organ damage is the principal determinant of: (i) the drug of choice, (ii) the target BP, and (iii) the timeframe in which BP should be lowered. Key target organs are the heart, retina, brain, kidneys, and large arteries. Patients who lack acute hypertension-mediated end organ damage do no...

Summary Background In the PATHWAY-2 study of resistant hypertension, spironolactone reduced blood pressure substantially more than conventional antihypertensive drugs. We did three substudies to assess the mechanisms underlying this superiority and the pathogenesis of resistant hypertension. Methods PATHWAY-2 was a randomised, double-blind crossover trial done at 14 UK primary and secondary care sites in 314 patients with resistant hypertension. Patients were given 12 weeks of once daily treatme...

: Take home figureAdapted from Bartsch and Gibbs2 Physiological response to hypoxia. Life-sustaining oxygen delivery, in spite of a reduction in the partial pressure of inhaled oxygen between 25% and 60% (respectively at 2500 m and 8000 m), is ensured by an increase in pulmonary ventilation, an increase in cardiac output by increasing heart rate, changes in vascular tone, as well as an increase in haemoglobin concentration. BP, blood pressure; HR, heart rate; PaCO2, partial pressure of arterial ...

Abstract Background Evidence for the influence of ambulatory blood pressure on prognosis derives mainly from population-based studies and a few relatively small clinical investigations. This study examined the associations of blood pressure measured in the clinic (clinic blood pressure) and 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure with all-cause and cardiovascular mortality in a large cohort of patients in primary care. Methods We analyzed data from a registry-based, multicenter, national cohort that i...

Summary Background Studies evaluating titration of antihypertensive medication using self-monitoring give contradictory findings and the precise place of telemonitoring over self-monitoring alone is unclear. The TASMINH4 trial aimed to assess the efficacy of self-monitored blood pressure, with or without telemonitoring, for antihypertensive titration in primary care, compared with usual care. Methods This study was a parallel randomised controlled trial done in 142 general practices in the UK, a...

Importance High blood pressure (BP) is the most important risk factor for death and cardiovascular disease (CVD) worldwide. The optimal cutoff for treatment of high BP is debated. Objective To assess the association between BP lowering treatment and death and CVD at different BP levels. Data Sources Previous systematic reviews were identified from PubMed, the Cochrane Database of Systematic Reviews, and the Database of Abstracts of Reviews of Effect. Reference lists of these reviews were searche...

AIM MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are non-coding RNA molecules that serve as regulators following gene expression transcription. While studies have investigated the role of miRNAs in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension (HT), very few have considered their place in the pathogenesis of resistant hypertension (RH). The purpose of this study was to investigate levels of miRNA 21 and miRNA 155 in RH and their relationships with aldosterone. METHOD Thirty-two normotensive patients, 30 newly diagnosed HT p...

Abstract null null Aim null Whether the total coronary atherosclerotic plaque burden is independently associated with myocardial ischemia in non-obstructive coronary artery disease (CAD) is not well established. We aimed to test the association of total plaque burden quantified by coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA) with myocardial ischemia in patients with chronic coronary syndrome and non-obstructive CAD. null null null Methods null We included 125 patients (age 62 ± 9 years, 58% w...

Abstract Aims To quantify the relation between apparent treatment resistant hypertension (aTRH) and the risk of recurrent major adverse cardiovascular events (MACE including stroke, myocardial infarction and vascular death) and mortality in patients with stable vascular disease. Methods 7455 hypertensive patients with symptomatic vascular disease were included from the ongoing UCC-SMART cohort between 1996 and 2019. aTRH was defined as an office blood pressure ≥ 140/90 mmHg despite treatment wit...

The prevalence of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) is increasing rapidly, and its prognosis is as poor as that of HF with reduced EF. Hypertension is an important risk factor involved in the pathophysiology of HFpEF. Although treatment of hypertension lowers the incidence of HF and is beneficial in patients with HFpEF, there is conflicting evidence on this topic. This article discusses the pathophysiological mechanisms linking hypertension with HFpEF and also the current ev...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW Hypertension (HTN) and obesity are major risk factors for cardiac remodeling and dysfunction, leading to left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and heart failure (HF). In this review, we discuss the complex mechanisms and effects of HTN and obesity, and their treatments in LVH, ventricular function, and HF. RECENT FINDINGS Obesity and HTN impact the heart through overlapping neurohormonal pathways. However, the relationship between obesity and cardiomyopathy is more complex, and ad...

The COVID-19 pandemic has prompted a reassessment of the traditional pathways and processes involved in the delivery of health care. This is especially true for diagnostic services, which have been profoundly affected during the pandemic as a result of an increase in demand and the reduction in workforce availability that followed staff illness, isolation, and redeployment. This has led to a dramatic increase in the number of patients waiting for key investigations; this is a problem felt acutel...

Cardiopulmonary exercise testing (CPET) is a tool designed to assess the integrated function of the cardiac, pulmonary, vascular, and musculoskeletal systems to produce an exercise effort. CPET may be performed for performance purposes as part of optimizing a training program or for clinical purposes in athletes with established cardiovascular disease or in those with symptoms suggestive of cardiopulmonary pathology. Most normative values used for CPET parameters have been derived in the general...
