Comparison of monocyte with high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio in dipper and nondipper hypertensive patients.

Comparison of monocyte with high density lipoprotein cholesterol ratio in dipper and nondipper hypertensive patients. Biomark Med. 2019 Oct 09;: Authors: Selcuk M, Yildirim E, Saylik F Abstract Aim: We aimed to compare the monocyte to HDL-cholesterol ratio (MHR) of nondipper hypertension (NDHT) and dipper hypertension patients. Patients &methods: A total of 162 patients were included in the study. Patients were grouped as dipper and nondipper according to 24-h ambulatory blood pressure recordings. Results: The MHR was significantly higher in nondipper hypertension group compared with control (p

This study aimed to investigate if statin use in cancer survivors was inversely associated with all-cause mortality.Methods and ResultsData from the 2002 to 2015 National Health Insurance Service-National Health Screening Cohort (NHIS-HEALS) were used. The Kaplan-Meier estimator was used to estimate the survival function according to statin usage. Cox proportional hazards regression models were adopted after stepwise adjustment for potential confounders to calculate hazard ratios (HRs) and 95% confidence intervals (CIs) for all-cause mortality. The median follow-up duration was 10.0 years. Statin users had a higher percent...

Authors: Hassing GJ, van der Wall HEC, van Westen GJP, Kemme MJB, Adiyaman A, Elvan A, Burggraaf J, Gal P Abstract Purpose: Elevated blood pressure induces electrocardiographic changes and is associated with an increase in cardiovascular disease later in life compared to normal blood pressure levels. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the association between normal to high normal blood pressure values (90-139/50-89 mmHg) and electrocardiographic parameters related to cardiac changes in hypertension in healthy young adults.Methods: Data from 1449 volunteers aged 18-30 years collected at our cent...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewPeripheral artery disease (PAD) affects close to 200 million people worldwide. Claudication is the most common presenting symptom for patients with PAD. This review summarizes the current diagnostic and treatment options for patients with claudication. Comprehensive history and physical examination in order to differentiate between claudication secondary to vascular disease vs. neurogenic causes is paramount for initial diagnosis. Ankle-brachial index is the most commonly used test for screening and diagnostic purposes. Treatment consists of four different approaches, which are best utilized in...

Authors: Grobelna MK, Strauss E, KrasiƄski Z Abstract Lately there are many new, promising low-density lipoprotein cholesterol reducing therapies with PCSK9 inhibitors. We performed selected sampling of the publications in PubMed and made a review according to selected keywords. It summarizes the effect of PCSK9 on vascular aging, directly associated with lipid and glucose metabolism, chronic inflammation, atherosclerosis and hypertension. Serum level of PCSK9 is different in patients affected by certain illnesses (whose risk increases with age) than in healthy individuals. The same could be observed in the case of c...
