Hemodynamic profiles in treatment-naive arterial hypertension and their clinical implication for treatment choice: an exploratory post hoc analysis

Conclusion: Our findings do not support the hypothesis that personalized treatment initiation based on hemodynamic profiles improves BP control in newly diagnosed hypertensive outpatients.

Int Heart J. 2021;62(4):837-842. doi: 10.1536/ihj.20-654.ABSTRACTChronic inflammation due to abdominal obesity plays a major role in the development of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Gender differences are well characterized in the development of CVD; however, in the association among abdominal obesity, chronic inflammation, and preclinical atherosclerosis, gender differences in the general population remain to be clarified. We retrospectively analyzed 1,163 subjects who underwent voluntary health checkups at our institute. We defined carotid artery plaque formation as carotid intima-media thickness ≥ 1.1 mm. Multiple re...

All the patients were screened for clinically indicated coronary angiography. They were divided into two groups according to the coronary angiography results: 340 patients with the presence of CHD (at least one coronary artery stenosis ≥50%) were classified as the CHD group, and the rest w...

CONCLUSIONS: During admission, both patients had sudden deterioration characterized by oxygen desaturation and hypotension necessitating inotropic support. As a result, for both patients, bedside echocardiography was performed by the attending intensivist. Echocardiographic findings showed cardiac tamponade and acute pulmonary embolism, respectively, which were confirmed by a cardiologist through telemedicine technology. Proper emergency management was initiated, and both patients recovered well. Limited bedside transthoracic echocardiography had a front-line impact on the treatment and outcome of the two patients with COV...

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTRefractory intracranial hypertension after traumatic brain injury (TBI) is defined as recurrent increase of intracranial pressure (ICP) above 20-22 mmHg for sustained period of time (10-15 min), despite conventional therapies, such as osmotic therapy, cerebral spinal fluid drainage and mild hyperventilation. As such, more aggressive treatments should be taken into consideration. In particular, therapeutic hypothermia, barbiturates administration and decompressive craniectomy are considered as tier-three or "salvage"...
