2018 ESC/ESH and 2019 NICE Hypertension Guidelines Compared 2018 ESC/ESH and 2019 NICE Hypertension Guidelines Compared
While the European Society of Cardiology/European Society of Hypertension 2018 guidelines and the 2019 NICE guidelines agree on many points, there are several important differences.European Heart Journal
CONCLUSIONS In middle-aged and elderly individuals without CKD, arterial stiffness determined by obesity, dyslipidemia and increased pulse pressure, was significantly associated with increased serum levels of cystatin C. PMID: 31793519 [PubMed - in process]
In conclusion, supraphysiological doses of protein supplements, anabolic steroids, and other nutritional products bear a risk factor for CAD.
Cured ham consumption and incidence of hypertension: The "Seguimiento Universidad de Navarra" (SUN) cohort. Med Clin (Barc). 2019 Nov 29;: Authors: Rico-Campà A, Sayón-Orea C, Martínez-González MÁ, Ruiz-Canela M, Ruiz-Estigarribia L, de la Fuente-Arrillaga C, Toledo E, Bes-Rastrollo M Abstract BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Cured ham is one of the most characteristic foods in the Spanish diet. Because it is a red processed meat and due to its nutritional composition, including high sodium content, a potential association between cured ham consumption and a highe...
Conclusion: Prevalence of hypertension was found to be higher among the diabetic group compared to the non- diabetic group (44.8% vs 42.6%), though the difference between the two was not very substantial. We therefore conclude that half of the urban poor are hypertensive even if they are not diabetic. PMID: 31793268 [PubMed - in process]
CONCLUSION: Osteoporotic BMD and osteoporotic fracture history were significantly, and independently, associated with an increased occurrence of echogenic plaques. Ultrasonographic screening of the carotid artery may benefit patients with osteoporosis. PMID: 31787146 [PubMed - in process]
Conclusions: Elderly hip fracture has a high risk of mortality (14%-58%). Thus, expeditious surgery within 24 hours of admission has been advocated in the Western literature to minimize mortality. Mortality rate at 1 year after surgery remains at 10% to 24%. In our study, even with aggressive co-management, the average delay to hip fracture fixation was more than 3 days; however, the 1-year mortality was relatively low (7.7%). This indicates the importance of preoperative optimization and postoperative rehabilitation for independent ambulation and mortality reduction in the elderly population.

ConclusionFindings showed that higher adherence to LCD may be associated with a lower risk of CVD outcomes in men but not in women.
Authors: Okido MM, Bettiol H, Barbieri MA, Marcolin AC, Quintana SM, Cardoso VC, Del-Ben CM, Cavalli RC Abstract A prospective cohort study was conducted to determine whether an increased uterine artery pulsatility index (UtA-PI) in the second trimester of pregnancy is a risk factor for neurodevelopmental outcomes in children 2-3 years of age. A group of pregnant women with a UtA-PI below the 90th percentile (P90) and a second group with a UtA-PI ≥ P90 in the second trimester were included in this study. The children of these women were evaluated during their second or third year of life using...
This study aimed to analyse maternal and foetal condition and pregnancy outcomes of PE patients with different IOS, and to explore the disease progression and characteristics of maternal and foetal outcomes for different IOS, so as to provide the basis for future maternal and foetal monitoring of PE patients.Impact statementWhat is already known on this subject? In 2013, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists revised their definition of PE, sparking a heated debate. Subsequently in 2015, China updated its guidelines to define PE as hypertensive pregnancy accompanied by involvement of any other organ or org...
