This study aimed to investigate the prevalence and associated factors of inter-arm blood pressure difference (IAD) in Chinese community hypertensive population. METHODS: The cross-sectional study included 7788 hypertensive patients (3673 male and 4115 female, aged 62.3±13.6 years) in Guangdong, China. IAD was defined as the absolute value of blood pressure (BP) difference between left and right arms. Bilateral BP was measured simultaneously by automated devices. RESULTS: The mean IAD was 4.04±4.33 mm Hg in systolic and 3.19±3.43 mm Hg in diastolic. The prevalence rates of systolic IAD (sIAD)&ge...

Authors: Abasi K, Lotfi Z, Ahmadi M, Majd HM, Hasanzamani B Abstract INTRODUCTION: Pulmonary hypertension (PHTN) is a common complication in patients with chronic kidney disease. Delayed Graft Function (DGF), on the other hand; is an essential complication after kidney transplantation. These two complications increase morbidity and mortality in patients. The effect of PHTN on cardiovascular and graft blood supply, as well as the same mechanisms underlying PTHN and DGF; led us to investigate the relationship between them. METHODS: In this retrospective cohort study, 306 patients aged 18 years or older who underw...
