Difference in SBP between arms is a predictor of chronic kidney disease development in the general Korean population
Conclusion: Increased IASBPD is an independent predictor of incident CKD in the general population.
ConclusionsA clinically relevant model of PTA of venous stenosis in mice was created. PTA-treated vessels had increased lumen vessel area and WSS. The alterations in tissue markers of vascular remodeling, tissue hypoxia, proliferation, and cell death may be implications for future design of drug and device development.

Conclusions: BMI and WC may predict incident hypertension better than skinfold thickness, WHR, and WHTR in the Chinese population.Ann Nutr Metab 2019;74:215 –223
Abstract: Preeclampsia is a complication of pregnancy that affects approximately 4% of pregnancies. Preeclampsia is defined as new-onset hypertension after 20 weeks gestation often accompanied by new-onset proteinuria. Women who experience preeclampsia during pregnancy are at an increased risk for hypertension and stroke later in life. Healthcare providers should screen women appropriately to minimize risk.
Post-stroke depression has been previously associated with poorer recovery, but new research suggests depression may also be a risk factor for stroke.Medscape Medical News
The rate of older black and white people who receive Medicare benefits and die after an initial stroke has fallen over the last 25 years, a new study says.
Authors: Medrano Navarro AL, Justel Enríquez A, Alameda Serrano J, Blasco Lamarca Y, Sáenz Abad D, Gimeno Orna JA Abstract BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Our aim was to assess the usefulness of KDIGO 2012 risk classification to predict total and cardiovascular mortality in type 2 diabetes mellitus (DM2). MATERIAL AND METHODS: Prospective cohort study that included DM2 patients. Clinical end-points were total and cardiovascular mortality. The main predictive variable was KDIGO risk classification, which is a combination of urinary albumin excretion and glomerular filtration rate. The predictive value was eva...

Conclusions: POAG cases and controls had similar neurocognitive function as measured by the MoCA. Among POAG cases, worse VF loss was associated with lower MoCA. Future studies are needed to further elucidate the clinical effect of neuropathy in POAG.Neurodegener Dis 2018;18:315 –321
