Effect of the baseline pulse wave velocity on short term and long term blood pressure control in primary hypertension

Arterial stiffness may affect antihypertensive response to antihypertensive treatment. However, sufficient clinical evidence is lacking. This longitudinal study aimed to evaluate the effect of baseline arterial stiffness measured by the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV) on response to short-term and long-term enalapril-based treatment in 3310 hypertensive adults from the China Stroke Primary Prevention Trial (CSPPT).

This study, therefore, is to investigate the effect of factors of HPB on elderly health disease in Malaysia. The factors of HPB are measured in 6 aspects, namely, healthy eating, exercise, stress management, interpersonal relations, health responsibility and spiritual growth. A set of 520 survey questionnaires was distributed and collected from respondents located in Perak, Malacca, Penang and Selangor. The statistical analysis result is analysed by using SmartPLS Software 3.0. The data analysis implicated that, elderly health disease is significantly affected by the factors of HPB (healthy eating, exercise, Interpersonal ...

The baroreceptor reflex is a powerful neural feedback that regulates arterial pressure (AP). Mechanosensitive channels transduce pulsatile AP to electrical signals in baroreceptors. Here we show that tentonin 3 (TTN3/TMEM150C), a cation channel activated by mechanical strokes, is essential for detecting AP changes in the aortic arch. TTN3 was expressed in nerve terminals in the aortic arch and nodose ganglion (NG) neurons. Genetic ablation of Ttn3 induced ambient hypertension, tachycardia, AP fluctuations, and impaired baroreflex sensitivity. Chemogenetic silencing or activation of Ttn3+ neurons in the NG resulted in an in...

Patients undergoing carotid endarterectomy (CEA) often experience post-operative hemodynamic changes that require intravenous medications for hypo- and hypertension. Prior studies have found these changes to be associated with increased risks of 30-day mortality, stroke, myocardial infarction (MI), and length of stay (LOS). Our aim was to investigate pre-operative risk factors associated with the need for post-operative intravenous medications for blood pressure control.

HIGH blood pressure is often due to a person's lifestyle and dietary habits. This is why what you consume and how you live your life could literally be a case of life or death as the condition is often related to heart attacks or strokes. Fortunately, a few simple tweaks and you will be on your way to lower readings and less health risks.

Abstract AIM OF STUDY: We investigated sex differences i n i schaemic s troke p atients t reated w ith i ntravenous a lteplase. CLINICAL RATIONALE FOR STUDY: We suggest that it is necessary to improve care for women with atrial fibrillation. Our data suggests that closer evaluation of treatment for ischaemic stroke in men and women is needed, preferably in the form of a prospective study. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a multicentre analysis of 1,830 ischaemic stroke patients treated with alteplase from 2004 to 2012. Data was prospectively collected in the Safe Implementation of Treatments in Stroke (SI...

AbstractDiabetes is a well ‐established risk factor for both ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke. Individuals with diabetes not only have a higher risk of stroke, they also have worse clinical outcomes after stroke, including poorer neurological recovery, higher rates of stroke recurrence and mortality. In addition to optimizin g glycemia, control of cardiovascular risk factors like hypertension and dyslipidemia is crucial in stroke prevention in subjects with diabetes.

By MICHEL ACCAD Last month marked the 400th anniversary of the birth of John Graunt, commonly regarded as the father of epidemiology.  His major published work, Natural and Political Observations Made upon the Bills of Mortality, called attention to the death statistics published weekly in London beginning in the late 16th century.  Graunt was skeptical of how causes of death were ascribed, especially in times of plagues.  Evidently, 400 years of scientific advances have done little to lessen his doubts!  A few days ago, Fox News reported that Colorado governor Jared Polis ...

 Health guidance suggests that reducing the amount of saturated fat we eat, by cutting down on animal fats, is good for our health.In the process of updating this review the authors wanted to know whether following this advice leads to a reduced risk of dying or getting cardiovascular disease (heart disease or stroke). They assessed the effect of replacing animal fats and hard vegetable fats with plant oils, unsaturated spreads or starchy foods, for at least two years, on health outcomes including dying, heart disease and stroke. They only looked at studies of adults (18 years or older). They included men and women wi...

CONCLUSIONS: Prevention and treatment of CVD in American Indians and Alaska Natives should focus on control of risk factors and community-based interventions that address social determinants of health, particularly among individuals with diabetes mellitus. Accurate reporting of race/ethnicity is encouraged to address race-specific risk factors. PMID: 32460555 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
