Conclusion: The association of intracranial hypertension in a ciliopathy is a rare occurrence.  The aetiology of intracranial hypertension in this case is likely multi-factorial, due to renal transplantation, post-renal transplant medications and/ or weight gain.  With evidence of cilia involvement in the central nervous system, ciliary dysfunction may contribute to intracranial hypertension, and should be considered in these patients presenting with headaches. Diagnosis may be difficult with advanced retinal degeneration and baseline retinal nerve fibre layer thinning. Treatment requires careful monitoring of re...

AbstractDespite the major progress in the treatment of heart failure, the burden of heart failure is steadily increasing in the Western world. Heart failure is characterized by increased sympathetic activity, and chronic sympathetic activation is involved in the maintenance of the pathological state. Recent studies have shown that catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) presents a safe and minimally invasive treatment option for uncontrolled hypertension, a condition that is driven by increased sympathetic activity. Although randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have examined the effect of RDN in heart failure patients, resul...

Conclusion: Among patients with PAF, the nondipping group showed greater sympathetic activity (higher low-frequency spectrum power and low-frequency spectrum/high-frequency spectrum) than the dipping group. Restoration of BP dipping after PVI is associated with increased parasympathetic activity (higher high-frequency spectrum power) and reduced recurrence of arrhythmic events.

AbstractBackgroundReduced left ventricular (LV) function is associated with increased myocardial oxygen consumption rate (MVO2) and altered sympathetic activity, the role of which is not well described in right ventricular (RV) dysfunction.Methods and results33 patients with left heart failure were assessed for RV function/size using echocardiography. Positron emission tomography (PET) was used to measure11C-acetate clearance rate (kmono),11C-hydroxyephedrine (11C-HED) standardized uptake value (SUV), and retention rate. RV MVO2 was estimated fromkmono.11C-HED SUV and retention indicated sympathetic neuronal function. A co...

Abstract The sympathetic nervous system plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of hypertension. The central nervous system (CNS) organizes the sympathetic outflow and various inputs from the periphery. The brain renin-angiotensin system has been studied in various regions involved in controlling sympathetic outflow. Recent progress in cardiovascular research, particularly in vascular biology and neuroscience, as well as in traditional physiological approaches, has advanced the field of the neural control of hypertension in which the CNS plays a vital role. Cardiovascular research relating to hypertension has fo...

a Lucia Correa-Giannella The paucity of epidemiological data regarding diabetes complications in Brazil motivated us to evaluate the prevalence rates of distal symmetric polyneuropathy (DSP) and of cardiovascular autonomic neuropathy (CAN) in individuals with type 2 diabetes (T2D) followed in a primary care unit. A total of 551 individuals (59.3% women, 65 years old; diabetes duration of 10 years; HbA1c of 7.2%, medians) were included in this cross-sectional study. DSP was diagnosed by sum of the Neuropathy Symptoms Score (NSS) and Modified Neuropathy Disability Score (NDS) and by the Semmes–Weinstein monofil...

Background: The Cushing response was first described in 1901. One of its components is elevated systemic blood pressure secondary to raised intracranial pressure. However, controversy still exists in its pathophysiologic mechanism. Hypertension is attributed to sympathetic overactivity and vagotomy increased renal-based hypertension. However, the role of the parasympathetic system in hypertension has not been investigated. This subject was investigated following subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH). Methods: A total of 24 rabbits were used: control group (n = 5), SHAM group (n = 5), and an SAH group (n = 14; bolu...

Authors: Wang Z, Yang J Abstract Paragangliomas (PGLs) arise from chromaffin cells of the extra-adrenal sites along the sympathetic and/or the parasympathetic chain. Majority of the PGLs occur in the abdomen. When retroperitoneal PGLs produce symptoms of compression or invasion of adjacent organs, they could be misdiagnosed as a tumor of adjacent organs. Here, we report a rare case of ureteral obstruction caused by an extra-adrenal retroperitoneal PGL that mimicked a ureteral tumor. A 46-year-old female presented with a 2-year history of hypertension. Routine laboratory tests were unremarkable. The computed tomogra...
