Correlations of Circadian Rhythm Disorder of Blood Pressure with Arrhythmia and Target Organ Damage in Hypertensive Patients.

Correlations of Circadian Rhythm Disorder of Blood Pressure with Arrhythmia and Target Organ Damage in Hypertensive Patients. Med Sci Monit. 2019 Oct 18;25:7808-7812 Authors: Zeng L, Zhang Z, Wang X, Tu S, Ye F Abstract BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to investigate the correlations of circadian rhythm disorder of blood pressure with arrhythmia and target organ damage in hypertensive patients. MATERIAL AND METHODS A total of 198 patients admitted and treated in our hospital from May 2018 to April 2019 were selected to receive 24-h ambulatory blood pressure monitoring. The nighttime blood pressure decrease rate is 0-10% in people with normal circadian rhythm of blood pressure. In the present study, we divided patients into a normal circadian rhythm group (normal circadian rhythm of blood pressure, n=132) and a circadian rhythm disorder group (circadian rhythm disorder of blood pressure, n=66) according to the circadian rhythm of blood pressure. The systolic blood pressure (SBP), diastolic blood pressure (DBP), and mean pulse pressure (PP) were observed, and dynamic electrocardiography was performed to observe the status of arrhythmia. Finally, the degree of damage to target organs such as heart, brain, and kidney was compared. RESULTS The circadian rhythm disorder group had remarkably higher daytime SBP (d-SBP), daytime DBP (d-DBP), and daytime PP (d-PP) but clearly lower nighttime SBP (n-SBP), nighttime DBP (n-DBP), and nighttime PP (n-PP) than in th...

McLeod, Paul KhairyAbstractArrhythmias are a leading cause of morbidity in adults with congenital heart disease (CHD). Numerous challenges to managing arrhythmias include vascular access issues, intracardiac shunts, unconventional locations of the conduction system, and anatomical complexities. Technological advances are improving our ability to diagnose and treat arrhythmias. Implantable loop recorders and various technologies developed for consumers to record elect...

CONCLUSIONS: More than half of middle-aged women without cardiovascular symptoms present alterations in one or more exercise testing parameters. Alterations in the functional capacity or heart rate behavior, as verified by exercise testing, are associated with age, smoking, an overweight status and obesity.

ConclusionsAtrial fibrillation, but not atrial flutter, was associated with reduced survival in our repaired TOF cohort. Further studies are required to determine if more aggressive antiarrhythmic therapy will improve survival in patients with atrial fibrillation.

ConclusionsWe could distinguish basal crux ‐VA, TA‐VA, and MA‐VA, using a combination of clinical and electrocardiographic findings. These findings might be useful for counseling patients about an ablation strategy. Ablation via the MCV is effective for eliminating basal crux‐VA.

We report 65 studies, 51 patients (mean age of 13  ± 4 years; 75% males), with aortic stenosis (AS) who had a maximal exercise test between 2005 and 2016. We defined three groups based on resting mean Doppler gradient across their aortic valve: severe AS (n = 10; gradient of ≥ 40 mmHg), moderate AS (n = 20; gradient 25–39 mmHg), and mild AS (n = 35; gradient ≤ 24 mmHg). We studied symptoms (chest pain) during exercise, resting electrocardiogram changes (left ventricular hypertrophy [LVH]), complex arrh...

CONCLUSIONS: Only one third of adult residents of Warsaw had normal ECG, and about a half of both young and asymptomatic individuals. The most often observed ECG abnormalities in men were intra-ventricular conduction disturbances, and ST segment depression and negative T wave changes in case of women. Atrial fibrillation was the most prevalent arrhythmia. We did not found statistically significant time trends for repolarization changes, conduction disturbances and arrhythmia.
