Renovascular hypertension: A report of 21 cases.

Renovascular hypertension: A report of 21 cases. Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl. 2014 Jan-Feb;25(1):96-100 Authors: Labidi J, Touat D, Abdelghanim K, Ajili F, Ariba YB, Abdelhafidh NB, Louzir B, Othmani S Abstract Renovascular hypertension (RVH) is among the most common forms of secondary hypertension. We studied 21 patients (eight male and 13 female) with RVH who were encountered during a period of 16 years. The average age of the patients was 34.75 years. Trans-renal Doppler ultrasound confirmed the diagnosis of renovascular stenosis (RAS) as the cause of RVH in 95% of the patients. Computed tomography angiography was performed in ten cases, which confirmed the diagnosis in all these cases. Magnetic resonance angiography was performed in only three patients. Renal scintigraphy was performed in 11 patients, with DTPA in nine patients and with MAG3 in two cases. Arteriography was performed in 15 cases for therapeutic end points. In two patients, we treated the arteries of both kidneys and in 19 cases we treated only one kidney artery. Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty was performed in ten cases. Renal arterial stent placement was performed in three cases in which RAS was from an atherosclerosis etiology. Surgical revascularization was performed in four cases. Nephrectomy was necessary in four cases. After interventional treatment, medical treatment using antihypertensive drugs was necessary in 17 of the patients. After treatment, three patients returned to no...

In this study, a novel hybrid scaffold made of transition metal was prepared on the base of graphene. After characterization of the synthetic Mo0.25Co1.257W0.25S3 hybridized with graphene oxide (MCWS/GO) using XRD, EDX, and FESEM, the cytotoxicity and the cell apoptosis of the composite were assumed using MTT and Annexin V/PI flow-cytometry methods, respectively. To treat spinal cord and sciatic nerve injuries, ethidium bromide induced damages was used in rats by T-10 to T-12 laminectomy and sciatic nerve stimulation. The spinal subarachnoid space was perfused with normal saline in control groups in comparison with using M...

Authors: Rueda-Rueda T, Sánchez-Vicente LJ, Moruno-Rodríguez A, Monge-Esquivel J, Muñoz-Morales A, López-Herrero F Abstract The case is presented of a 32 year-old male who arrived with acute bilateral symptoms with blurred vision, red eye, severe photophobia and severe ocular pain after suffering from a flu-like syndrome. The patient presented with a clinical picture of bilateral involvement characterised by pupils in mid-mydriasis, scarcely reactive to light, iris transillumination, diffuse depigmentation of the iridian stroma, pigment dispersion in the anterior chamber, and ocular hype...

This study, being presented tomorrow (Monday) morning at the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology in New Orleans, reports that " adults who report puffing e-cigarettes, or vaping, are significantly more likely to have a heart attack, coronary artery disease and depression compared with those who don ’t use them or any tobacco products. "These conclusions were based on a cross-sectional analysis of data from the 2014, 2016, and 2017 National Health Interview Surveys. Respondents were asked to report whether they had ever been diagnosed with having had a heart attack, coronary artery disease, ...

Publication date: Available online 16 March 2019Source: Biochimica et Biophysica Acta (BBA) - BiomembranesAuthor(s): Tommy Nordström, Leif C. Andersson, Karl E.O. ÅkermanAbstractA stroke causes a hypoxic brain microenvironment that alters neural cell metabolism resulting in cell membrane hyperpolarization and intracellular acidosis. We studied how intracellular pH (pHi) is regulated in differentiated mouse neural progenitor cells during hyperpolarizing conditions, induced by prompt reduction of the extracellular K+ concentration. We found that the radial glia-like population in differentiating embryonic neural p...

AbstractBackgroundWhile periventricular anastomosis, a unique abnormal vasculature in moyamoya disease, has been studied in relation to intracranial hemorrhage, no study has addressed its change after bypass surgery. The authors sought to test whether direct bypass surgery could restore normal periventricular vasculature.MethodsPatients who had undergone direct bypass surgery for moyamoya disease at a single institution were eligible for the study. Baseline, postoperative, and follow-up magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) scans were scheduled before surgery, after the first surgery, and 3 to 6  months after contralat...

AbstractPurpose of ReviewThis review aims to summarize and discuss the relationship between outpatient clinic and ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurements and cardiovascular morbidity and mortality.Recent FindingsContemporary clinical practice guidelines worldwide recommend ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) to confirm the diagnosis of hypertension. Recent epidemiological studies and systematic reviews showed ABPM predicts cardiovascular events and mortality independent of clinic BP. Ambulatory BP appears to be prognostically superior to clinic BP.SummaryABPM characterizes BP phenotypes that would not have othe...
