Hypertension and hypertensive encephalopathy.

The definition of hypertension has continuously evolved over the last 50 years. Hypertension is currently defined as a blood pressure greater than 140/90mmHg. One in every four people in the US has been diagnosed with hypertension. The prevalence of hypertension increases further with age, affecting 75% of people over the age of 70. Hypertension is by far the most common risk factor identified in stroke patients. Hypertension causes pathologic changes in the walls of small (diameter

A case study of unusual etiology of anterior uveitis with ocular hypertension-iris metastasis of primary lung adenocarcinoma.

This is a case of anterior uveitis in a 50 year-old man caused by lung adenocarcinoma metastasis to the iris.

Ocular siderosis.

Ocular siderosis refers to intraocular iron deposition in ocular tissues caused by the long-time retention of penetrating iron-containing foreign bodies, commonly leading to a series of characteristic alterations and severe disorder of visual function. Ocular siderosis, rarely seen in the clinic, can cause irreversible retinal injuries and visual function damage and can even affect the appearance of the eyeballs. These effects significantly decrease the quality of life of patients and lead to poor prognosis...

Behçet's disease ocular attack score 24: evaluation of ocular disease activity before and after initiation of infliximab.

We developed a novel scoring system for uveitis due to Behçet's disease (BD), termed Behçet's disease ocular attack score 24 (BOS24), and examined its validity and usefulness by estimating changes in ocular disease activities both before and after initiation of infliximab therapy.

Hospital-based ocular emergencies: epidemiology, treatment, and visual outcomes.

Ocular trauma is recognized as the leading cause of unilateral blindness. However, few studies to date have focused on the clinical features of hospital-based ocular emergencies. Effectiveness of trauma centers in treating ocular emergencies was compared with treatment in traditional community hospital emergency departments. Demographics, causes, and nature of ocular emergencies, as well as visual outcome in community hospitals emergency departments and trauma centers, were also examined.

Profile of ocular trauma in industries-related hospital.

Ocular trauma is a worldwide cause of visual morbidity, a significant proportion of which occurs in the industrial workplace and includes a spectrum of simple ocular surface foreign bodies, abrasions to devastating perforating injuries causing blindness. Being preventable is of social and medical concern.

The impact of different anthropometric measures on sustained normotension, white coat hypertension, masked hypertension, and sustained hypertension in patients with type 2 diabetes.

Many studies have aimed to determine whether body mass index (BMI), waist circumference (WC), or waist to hip ratio (WHR) best predicts hypertension in diabetic patients, with conflicting results. However, no study has examined the specific relationship between these anthropometric parameters with sustained normotension (SNT), white coat hypertension (WCHT), masked hypertension (MHT), and sustained hypertension (SHT) based on office and ambulatory blood pressure (BP) measurements in these patients.

Effects of hypertension on hearing.

The World Hypertension League and International Society of Hypertension Call on Governments, Nongovernmental Organizations, and the Food Industry to Work to Reduce Dietary Sodium.

Ocular Surface Cytotoxicity and Safety Evaluation of Tafluprost, a Recently Developed Anti-Glaucoma Prostaglandin Analog.

In vitro cytotoxicity of tafluprost, which is the most recently developed anti-glaucoma prostaglandin (PG) analog, in ocular surface cells is addressed in comparison with other PG analogs. Irrespective of cell lines and models, the cytotoxicity of anti-glaucoma PG eyedrops was primarily related to the concentration of benzalkonium chloride (BAK) contained in the eyedrops as a preservative. Accordingly, preservative-free tafluprost was apparently less cytotoxic than BAK-preserved PG analogs. Furthermore, our...

Prevalence of Hypertension, Awareness, Treatment, and Control in the Hispanic Community Health Study/Study of Latinos.

A total of 35 patients of corneal ulcer, 20 patients of ocular surface disorders and 10 control subjects were included in this study and estimation of active form of MMP-2 and MMP-9 was done by gelatin zymography. Tear samples were collected by capillary tube method. Both pro- and active forms of MMP-9 were detected in 24 out of 35 patients with corn...

The International Society of Hypertension and World Hypertension League call on governments, nongovernmental organizations and the food industry to work to reduce dietary sodium.

The International Society of Hypertension and the World Hypertension League have developed a policy statement calling for reducing dietary salt. The policy supports the WHO and the United Nations recommendations, which are based on a comprehensive and up-to-date review of relevant research. The policy statement calls for broad societal action to reduce dietary salt, thus reducing blood pressure and preventing hypertension and its related burden of cardiovascular disease. The hypertension organizations and e...

Ocular Graft Versus Host Disease Following Allogeneic Stem Cell Transplantation: A Review of Current Knowledge and Recommendations.

Graft versus host disease (GVHD) is a common complication of allogeneic stem cell transplantation (allo-SCT). Ocular GVHD develops in approximately 40-60% of patients following allo-SCT and its most common clinical manifestations include keratoconjunctivitis sicca and cicatricial conjunctivitis. Ocular GVHD may lead to severe ocular surface disease, which can significantly diminish quality of life and restrict daily activities. It is thus important to monitor the condition closely since with timely diagnosi...

Interplay of overweight and insulin resistance on hypertension development.
