Kidney Donation Linked to Increased Hypertension Risk
FRIDAY, Sept. 20, 2019 -- Kidney donation is associated with an increased risk for hypertension, according to a study published online Sept. 19 in the Clinical Journal of the American Society of Nephrology. Courtenay M. Holscher, M.D., from the...
ConclusionA considerable burden of previously unknown AF was detected when long-term monitoring was applied in at-risk patients. Biomarkers were associated with AF incidence and improved prediction of long AF episodes.
DiscussionGiven the multiorgan system potential adverse side effects of prednisone, proving noninferiority of an alternate regimen would be sufficient to make the alternative compare favorably to standard dose steroids. This is the first ever clinical trial in cardiac sarcoidosis and thus in addition to the listed goals of the trial, we will also establish a multi-center, multinational cardiac sarcoidosis clinical trials network. Such a collaborative infrastructure will enable a new era of high quality data to guide physicians when treating cardiac sarcoidosis patients.

Americans consume about 150 pounds of milk and eat nearly 40 pounds of cheese and 20 pounds of ice cream per person per year, according to data from the Department of Agriculture. Yogurt and butter intakes are lower, but growing. But should the dairy we’re consuming be low-fat or full-fat? That debate has become increasingly divisive, and for good reason: not all dairy is created equal. Dairy fat and cardiovascular disease Some of the most substantial dairy research has been done in the context of the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet, which has been shown, among other benefits, to reduce blood pres...
OPSUMIT, as part of a combination regimen, reduced the primary endpoint of mean pulmonary vascular resistance by 47% at week 16 compared with baseline
HIGH blood pressure is a common condition that can lead to serious and even life-threatening conditions if left untreated. Diet can play a big part in increasing and decreasing blood pressure, and the following six foods you may want to avoid to lower your reading.
Middle aortic syndrome is a rare condition characterized by coarctation of distal thoracic or abdominal aorta with involvement of the major branches; therefore, the lesions are particularly difficult to manage. More experience in its treatment is required to establish a well-supported treatment guideline. This retrospective study of the clinical and anatomic characteristics of patients with middle aortic syndrome as well as their treatment details and outcomes was conducted in a single center.
This report aimed to discuss the reason for IVCT in a case of pregnancy-induced hypertension with decreased antithrombin III and protein S and the anticoagulation strategy.
This study was designed to investigate whether angiogenesis factors could serve as noninvasive markers for the diagnosis of PH in the COPD patient and which could serve as therapeutic targets.

Mutations in different genes increase aldosterone production in PA, but additional mechanisms may contribute to increased cell proliferation and aldosterone producing adenoma (APA) development. We performed transcriptome analysis in APA and identified retinoic acid receptor alpha (RAR α) signaling as a central molecular network involved in nodule formation. To understand how RARα mod...
