Pulmonary Hypertension, Mortality, and Cardiovascular Disease in CKD and ESRD Patients: A Systematic Review and Meta-analysis

ConclusionsPulmonary hypertension is associated with a substantially increased risk for death and cardiovascular events in patients with CKD and ESRD. Risk is higher in patients with ESRD receiving dialysis compared with patients with CKD stages 1 to 5. Understanding the effect of interventions to lower pulmonary artery pressure on the survival of these patents awaits their evaluation in randomized controlled trials.

Conclusionn-Butanolic fraction of Thymus linearis possesses endothelium independent vasorelaxant effects in coronary artery by direct acting on the smooth muscles. These effects involve the elevation of the cyclic AMP and cyclic GMP possibly through the inhibition of various PDEs. GCMS analysis revel presence of thymole and carvacrol as major constituents. Furthermore, these investigations also support the folklore use of Thymus linearis in hypertension.Graphical abstract

Authors: Marušić M, Klemenčić A, Troskot Perić R, Hauser G Abstract Gastroesophageal variceal hemorrhage is the most important clinical event that results from portal hypertension. It is a lifethreatening condition that demands rapid and efficient treatment. The first step in bleeding control is hemodynamic stabilization and pharmacological treatment, which includes administration of vasoactive drugs and short-term antibiotic prophylaxis. After initial hemodynamic stabilization, endoscopic therapy should be performed. The first choice of endoscopic treatment for esophageal bleeding is endoscopic variceal...
