Spironolactone Effectively Lowers BP in Resistant HypertensionSpironolactone Effectively Lowers BP in Resistant Hypertension

Patients with resistant hypertension, those taking three drugs at maximally tolerated doses but still not at goal, should not be called "resistant" until they have tried spironolactone, according to PATHWAY2 researchers. Heartwire from Medscape

ConclusionPatients with BFB in Korea showed more common hypertension and symptoms of foul odor, mucopurulent rhinorrhea, and postnasal drip with allergy positivity compared to those with UFB. Therefore, understanding clinical characteristics of BFB will allow clinicians to approach BFB more appropriately.

This study was designed to evaluate the clinical and radiographic outcomes of patients with nutcracker syndrome (NCS) who were treated with three-dimensional printing (3DP) extravascular titanium stents (EVTSs). The 3DP EVTS was expected to release the hypertension of the left renal vein (LRV) produced by its compression between the superior mesenteric artery (SMA) and the aorta without causing any complications. METHOD: The pre-operative kidney model of each patient was printed out to enable surgical planning. After that, the EVTS was designed based on the LRV's primitive physiologic structure using computer-aided de...

We describe a 63-year-old woman with signs and symptoms of intracranial hypertension. Brain MRI revealed hydrocephalus. Venous Doppler ultrasound showed external compression of the omohyoid muscles on the internal jugular veins. During jugular vein decompression, intracranial pressure dropped from 18 to 6  mmHg. Patient is asymptomatic at 2-year follow-up, with decreased brain ventricles. These findings could represent a novel form of high-pressure hydrocephalus that can be successfully treated without a CSF shunt. We called this syndrome JEDI (jugular entrapment dilated ventricles intracranial hype rtension).

ConclusionsIn this manuscript, we present the final consensus-based recommendations. We have also identified areas of uncertainty, where further research is required, including the role of primary DC, the role of hinge craniotomy and the optimal timing and material for skull reconstruction.

This study aimed to collect data about labelled salt content of pre-packaged food products available in stores and in the websites of three supermarkets in Porto (Portugal), and also to compare the labelled salt content of products available in store and online. Products were collected in store and website of three main distributing food chains available in Portugal. Median salt content in food categories was: Rice 0.70 g/100 g (n = 27), Potato and potato-products 1.00 g/100 g (n = 196), Pasta 0.88 g/100 g (n = 108), Bread and bread products 1.10 g/100 g (n = 437), Vegetables and legumes 1.1...

Authors: Matsumura K, Kin H, Matsuki R, Adachi K, Goda T, Yamamoto Y, Sugiura T, Shiojima I Abstract A 72-year-old woman with hypertension, dyslipidemia, and diabetes mellitus presented to our hospital because of the sudden onset of chest pain. Emergency coronary angiography showed acute occlusion of the distal left anterior descending artery and coronary intervention with a drug-eluting stent was performed. Sudden cardiopulmonary arrest occurred on the sixth day of hospitalization, but coronary angiography showed no remarkable progression of the coronary artery diseases, including the site of stent implantation. A...

Authors: Wang M, Gu S, Liu Y, Yang Y, Yan J, Zhang X, An X, Gao J, Hu X, Su P Abstract Our previous studies have revealed that long noncoding RNAs (lncRNAs), microRNAs (miRNAs), and genes were abnormally expressed in the pulmonary artery tissues of the chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) patients. We aim to establish the CTEPH-related miRNA-gene-lncRNA network for finding the core genes and associated miRNA and lncRNA in CTEPH patients.Firstly, the target genes of differential miRNAs were predicted by searching TargetScan databases, and the predicted target genes were intersected with the mRNAs fr...
