AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to summarize and discuss the relationship between outpatient clinic and ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurements and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.Recent FindingsContemporary clinical practice guidelines worldwide recommend ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension. Recent epidemiological studies and systematic reviews showed ABPM predicts cardiovascular events and mortality independent of clinic BP. Ambulatory BP appears to be prognostically superior to clinic BP.SummaryABPM characterizes BP phenotypes that would not have othe...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewTargeted pharmacotherapies did improve survival rates, exercise capacity, and quality of life (QoL) of PAH patients. However, these pharmacological interventions are expensive and not always accessible. In addition, not all patients do respond similarly to these medications and many will continue to deteriorate. This review aims to discuss the beneficial role of an artificial right-to-left shunt and highlights current interventional devices and outcomes.Recent FindingsSince patients with preexisting atrial shunts or patients with Eisenmenger ’s disease show better survival rates, improved...

AbstractPregnancy can be seen as a positive time for women migraineurs because the elevated estrogen and endogenous opioid levels raise the pain threshold and the stable hormone levels, which no longer fluctuate, eliminate a major trigger factor for the attacks. In a great majority of cases, indeed, migraine symptoms spontaneously improve throughout pregnancy. Generally, migraine without aura (MO) improves better than migraine with aura (MA), which can occur ex novo in pregnancy more frequently than MO. After childbirth, the recurrence rate of migraine attacks increases, especially during the first month; breastfeeding exe...

Authors: Liakakis G Abstract Subcortical small-vessel disease (SSVD) is a disorder that has been fully described in clinical, neuropathological and imaging aspects. It is considered as the most prevalent ischemic CNS disorder and has been associated to arterial hypertension, diabetes mellitus, dyslipidemia and obstructive sleep apnea. The hallmark of SSVD is the ischemic white matter lesions which can be presented as lacunar infracts and global brain hypoperfusion in a common and homogeneous subtype of vascular cognitive impairment (VCI) which is often unrecognized. The special nature and course of SSVD offers the ...

Authors: Paraskevas GP Abstract Hereditary types of ischemic cerebral subcortical small vessel disease (SSVD) are rare, usually autosomal dominant, diseases, due to an abnormality in vessel wall synthesis. They may present with various combinations of migraine with aura, ischemic events (transient ischemic attacks, lacunar strokes) and progressively worsening ischemic lesion load in brain imaging. Eventually, vascular cognitive impairment (usually of the frontal-subcortical type) develops, frequently accompanied by behavioral-psychiatric symptoms and bilateral pyramidal and pseudobulbar signs leading to severe disa...

In conclusion, Cap showed a protective effect on TAC-induced cardiac apoptosis, which could be attributed to the inhibition of Wnt3a/β-catenin signaling pathway. Cap also attenuated myocardial hypertrophy induced by TAC via suppression of Jak2/Stat3 pathway.

Authors: Rizzi M, Radovanovic D, Airoldi A, Cristiano A, Frassanito F, Gaboardi P, Saad M, Atzeni F, Sarzi-Puttini P, Santus P Abstract Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is an autoimmune disease characterised by tissue fibrosis leading to vascular injury. Nitric oxide (NO) has been implicated in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases. A deficiency in basal NO production by the constitutive endothelial isoform of nitric oxide synthase may promote vasoconstriction and vascular wall thickening. In January 2017, we searched the PubMed/Medline, Cochrane Library and Enbase/Medline databases for studies analysing physio-pathologi...
