Arrhythmic syncope in neurogenic orthostatic hypotension: two case reports.

Patients with autonomic failure experience orthostatic hypotension (OH) often leading to syncope. Arrhythmias may cause severe syncope, characterized by an increased risk of mortality. We report two c...

Orthostatic hypotension: definition, diagnosis and management.

Orthostatic hypotension commonly affects elderly patients and those suffering from diabetes mellitus and Parkinson's disease. It is a cause of significant morbidity in the affected patients. The goal...

Association between orthostatic hypotension and cardiovascular risk, cerebrovascular risk, cognitive decline and falls as well as overall mortality: a systematic review and meta-analysis.

Several studies have suggested that orthostatic hypotension may be an independent predictor of cardiovascular or cerebrovascular risk and all-cause mortality, particularly in a geriatric population. I...

Management of Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension.

The burden of orthostatic hypotension (OH) on public health is a universally recognized enigmatic clinical condition that is associated with significant increases on morbidity and mortality rates, and...

Transient loss of consciousness and syncope.

Syncope describes a sudden and brief transient loss of consciousness (TLOC) with postural failure due to cerebral global hypoperfusion. The term TLOC is used when the cause is either unrelated to cere...

Fipamezole in Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Fipamezole is effective in the treatment of orthostatic hypotension and related symptoms in multiple system atrophy and Parkinson's diseas...

Is Orthostatic Hypotension Associated With Nondipping Hypertension

The aim of the study is to evaluate whether orthostatic hypotension is associated with nondipping hypertension. Methods and patients: 400 subjects who are referred for 24hABPM will be fil...

Phase II Study of Midodrine for Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension

OBJECTIVES: I. Study further the safety and efficacy of the alpha-receptor agonist midodrine in patients with neurogenic orthostatic hypotension. II. Assess the quality of life in these...

A Clinical Study for Patients With Neurogenic Orthostatic Hypotension (NOH) Using Droxidopa

The purpose of this study is to see whether droxidopa is effective in treating symptoms of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension in patients with Primary Autonomic Failure (Pure Autonomic Fai...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Symptoms of cerebral hypoperfusion or autonomic overaction which develop while the subject is standing, but are relieved on recumbency. Types of this include NEUROCARDIOGENIC SYNCOPE; POSTURAL ORTHOSTATIC TACHYCARDIA SYNDROME; and neurogenic ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION. (From Noseworthy, JH., Neurological Therapeutics Principles and Practice, 2007, p2575-2576)

A significant drop in BLOOD PRESSURE after assuming a standing position. Orthostatic hypotension is a finding, and defined as a 20-mm Hg decrease in systolic pressure or a 10-mm Hg decrease in diastolic pressure 3 minutes after the person has risen from supine to standing. Symptoms generally include DIZZINESS, blurred vision, and SYNCOPE.

A syndrome of ORTHOSTATIC INTOLERANCE combined with excessive upright TACHYCARDIA, and usually without associated ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION. All variants have in common an excessively reduced venous return to the heart (central HYPOVOLEMIA) while upright.

An autosomal disorder of the peripheral and autonomic nervous systems limited to individuals of Ashkenazic Jewish descent. Clinical manifestations are present at birth and include diminished lacrimation, defective thermoregulation, orthostatic hypotension (HYPOTENSION, ORTHOSTATIC), fixed pupils, excessive SWEATING, loss of pain and temperature sensation, and absent reflexes. Pathologic features include reduced numbers of small diameter peripheral nerve fibers and autonomic ganglion neurons. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p1348; Nat Genet 1993;4(2):160-4)

A degenerative disease of the AUTONOMIC NERVOUS SYSTEM that is characterized by idiopathic ORTHOSTATIC HYPOTENSION and a greatly reduced level of CATECHOLAMINES. No other neurological deficits are present.
