Raised blood pressure with age, hypertension, is a major downstream consequence of low-level biochemical damage and cellular dysfunction, converting it into high-level structural damage in the body and brain. Hypertension is an important proximate contributing cause of ultimately fatal age-related conditions of the cardiovascular system, kidneys, brain, and lungs, among others. Pressure damage in delicate tissues degrades function in many organs, particularly in the central nervous system where there is little to no regeneration capable of reversing that damage. More subtly, hypertension also causes heart muscles to enlarg...

Abstract Hypertension increases the risk of heart disease and stroke, is commonly known as a silent killer disease and considered as one of the key risk factor for premature death and disability over the world. Herein, we report for the first time a sensitive, costless and reproducible voltammetric method for individual determination of five antihypertensive drugs namely, propranolol (PRO), timolol (TIM), amlodipine (AML), amiloride (AMI) and triamterene (TRI) using differential pulse voltammetry at bare/unmodified screen-printed carbon electrodes (SPEs) in presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS). Each drug exhib...

Authors: Zhang S, Zhang W, Zhou G Abstract Stroke causes disability and high mortality, while it can be prevented by increasing public awareness of risk factors. The common known risk factors are hypertension, atrial fibrillation, heart failure, smoking, alcohol consumption, low physical activity, overweight and hypercholesterolemia. However, the deep understanding of risk factors is limited. Moreover, more risk factor emerges in recent years. To further increase the awareness of risk factors for stroke prevention, this review indicates the reasonable application of antihypertensive agents according to the age-depe...

(CNN) — If you’re a healthy older adult looking for ways to reduce your risk of heart attack and stroke, don’t turn to that age-old standby: daily low-dose aspirin. It’s no longer recommended as a preventative for older adults who don’t have a high risk or existing heart disease, according to guidelines announced Sunday by the American College of Cardiology and the American Heart Association. “For the most part, we are now much better at treating risk factors such as hypertension, diabetes and especially high cholesterol,” said North Carolina cardiologist Dr. Kevin Campbell, who wa...

AbstractHypertension is a prevalent progressive disorder and a key risk factor for cardiovascular disease, stroke, and kidney disease. Angiotensin-I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors are the first-line drugs for treating hypertension, but they have many side effects. ACE is a zinc dipeptidyl carboxypeptidase that cleaves the decapeptide angiotensin-I to form the vasopressor angiotensin-II. Since the latter molecule is the main bioactive product of the renin –angiotensin system, its inhibition is a key strategy for hypertension therapy. The aim of this study was to conduct an in silico evaluation of a series of new p...

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: 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...

Strokes are a serious complication of LVADs and are especially known to occur with hypertension. Hypoperfusion of the innominate artery has been described in LVADS, especially in smaller diameter outflow grafts. (1) The normal circle of Willis is often incomplete and Hypoplasia of the posterior communicating artery is a common variant. Modelling flow in the circle of Willis may shed light on strokes in LVADS (1) Effect of Outflow Graft Size on Flow in the Aortic Arch and Cerebral Blood Flow in Continuous Flow Pumps: Possible Relevance to Strokes.ASAIO 63:2,144-149
