ESC Council on hypertension position document on the management of hypertensive emergencies.

Hypertensive emergencies are those situations where very high blood pressure (BP) values are associated with acute organ damage, and therefore, require immediate, but careful, BP reduction. The type of acute organ damage is the principal determinant of: (i) the drug of choice, (ii) the target BP, and (iii) the timeframe in which BP should be lowered. Key target organs are the heart, retina, brain, kidneys, and large arteries. Patients who lack acute hypertension-mediated end organ damage do not have a hyper...

Is endocan a biochemical marker for asymptomatic target organ damage in hypertensive patients?

Identification of the asymptomatic target organ damage (AOD) helps to stratify the overall risk of cardiovascular (CV) diseases and guides a treatment decision in hypertensive patients without a symptomatic CV or renal disease. The endothelial-cell-specific molecule 1 (endocan) is regarded as a novel marker of endothelial dysfunction. Its release is increased in hypertensive patients, especially those with symptomatic CV and renal disease. In the present study, we aimed to evaluate the endocan levels in asy...

Hypertensive ocular disease in cats: A guide to fundic lesions to facilitate early diagnosis.

Systemic hypertension is common in older cats and can result in damage to organs with a rich arteriolar supply such as the eyes, kidneys, myocardium and brain. Hypertensive disease in these organs is known as target organ damage (TOD). Disease in the eye resulting from hypertension is the most easily identifiable form of TOD and can often be the reason the cat is presented to the veterinarian. Routine blood pressure measurement and fundic examination allows cats with hypertensive ocular lesions to be detect...

HDL cholesterol levels and endothelial glycocalyx integrity in treated hypertensive patients.

Endothelial dysfunction indicates target organ damage in hypertensive patients. The integrity of endothelial glycocalyx (EG) plays a vital role in vascular permeability, inflammation and elasticity, and finally to cardiovascular disease. The authors aimed to investigate the role of increased HDL cholesterol (HDL-C) levels, which usually are considered protective against cardiovascular disease, in EG integrity in older hypertensive patients. The authors studied 120 treated hypertensive patients older than 50...

Hypertensive organ damage predicts future cognitive performance: A 9-year follow-up study in patients with hypertension.

Hypertension is associated with cognitive deficits, probably caused by cerebral small vessel disease. The authors examined whether additional presence of cardiac and renal organ damages, and their combined presence, are associated with future cognitive performance. In 78 patients with essential hypertension (mean age 51.2 ± 12.0 years), brain damage was determined by MRI features, cardiac damage by left ventricular mass index (LVMI), and renal damage by estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) and al...

Role of T-cell Activation in Salt-sensitive Hypertension.

The contributions of T lymphocytes to the pathogenesis of salt-sensitive hypertension has been well established. Under hypertensive stimuli, naïve T cells develop into different subsets, including Th1, Th2, Th17, Treg and cytotoxic CD8 T cells, depending on the surrounding microenviroment in organs. Distinct subsets of T cells may play totally different roles in tissue damage and hypertension. The underlying mechanisms by which hypertensive stimuli activate naïve T cells involve many events and different ...

Nondipping Pattern and Cardiovascular and Renal Damage in a Population-Based Study (The Stanislas Cohort Study).

The attenuation of physiological nocturnal decline of blood pressure (BP) - called nondipper pattern - has previously been reported to be associated with target organ damage in hypertensive subjects. However, this association remains debated and poorly studied in normotensive patients. The present study aimed to investigate the association between nondipper pattern and subclinical cardiovascular and renal damage in an initially healthy population-based cohort study.

Serum calcium levels at admission is associated with the outcomes in patients with hypertensive intracerebral hemorrhage.

Hypertensive spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhages (ICH) cause significant morbidity and mortality. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association between calcium level at admission and outcome in hypertensive ICH patients.

JYYS Granule Mitigates Renal Injury in Clinic and in Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats by Inhibiting NF-B Signaling-Mediated Microinflammation.

Hypertensive renal damage is a chronic and life-threatening kidney disease all over the world. The traditional Chinese medicine Jiang Ya Yi Shen (JYYS) granule has been a perfect drug for patients with hypertensive renal injury in clinic for 20 years in China. However, the molecular mechanism of JYYS granule remains unknown in treatment of this disease.

Increased carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity and common carotid artery intima-media thickness obtained to assess target organ damage in hypertensive patients are closely related.

Increased carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (CF-PWV) and increased carotid intima-media thickness (IMT) in hypertension (HT) patients are indicators of asymptomatic organ damage. The relationship between carotid IMT and CF-PWV has been shown; studies comparing CF-PWV and IMT values within different vascular regions are limited. We aimed to investigate the relationship between IMT value measured from different anatomical regions and CF-PWV, and the localization of IMT that determines increased CF-PWV best.

Relationships between blood pressure lowering therapy and cardiovascular events in hypertensive patients with coronary artery disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus: The HIJ-CREATE sub-study.

The effects of intensive blood pressure (BP) lowering for hypertensive patients with coronary artery disease (CAD) and diabetes mellitus on their clinical outcomes have not been fully evaluated. The aim was to explore the optimal systolic BP target in such patients in a substudy of a prospective, randomized trial.

The efficiency of modernmethods of laboratory diagnosis in the evaluation of various forms of hemorrhagic fever with renal syndrome caused by the Puumala hantavirus (PUUV).

We've conducted the analysis of both traditional and new methods of laboratory diagnosis to estimate the severity and damage of target organs during Hemorrhagic Fever with Renal Syndrome (HFRS). It was shown that thrombocytopenia corresponds to the severity of the disease and correlates with the severity of renal failure. The level of C-reactive protein reflects the activity of the inflammatory process and correlates with the characteristic laboratory criteria of the disease. Blood serum levels of alveomuci...

Target Therapy in SLE.

The intention of this paper is to review actual developments in target therapy in SLE. Target therapy includes both the objective of intervention and the aim of treatment. The objective should be linked to the pathophysiologic process of SLE; the aim has to be in any case an improved outcome. The current therapeutic in SLE is guided mostly by secondary prevention. In SLE, besides a BASIC concept with antimalarials, bone and sun protection, vaccination and cardiovascular risk minimising, treatment waits for ...

Neuronal nitric oxide synthase contributes to the normalization of blood pressure in medicated hypertensive patients.

Neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) is expressed in the cardiovascular system and besides NO, generates HO. nNOS has been proposed to contribute to the control of blood pressure in healthy humans. The aim this study was to verify the hypothesis that nNOS can contribute to the control of vascular relaxation and blood pressure in hypertensive patients undergoing drug treatment. The study was conducted in resistance mesenteric arteries from 63 individuals, as follows: 1) normotensive patients; 2) controlled ...

The influence of quality of life on the level of adherence to therapeutic recommendations among elderly hypertensive patients.

Hypertension is one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease, which contributes to lowering the quality of life (QOL), especially in elderly patients. Recent data show that almost half of the hypertensive patients and one-third of patients with comorbidities were nonadherent to medication.

Patients with Hypertensive Nephropathy and Chronic Kidney Disease Might Not Benefit from Strict Blood Pressure Control.

In patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) strict blood pressure (BP) control is reno-protective. However, renal benefits from BP control might depend also on the etiology of CKD. We investigated if maintenance of BP at target is equally effective in subjects with hypertensive nephropathy (HN+) and in those with other nephropathies (HN-).

Relation between baseline LDL-cholesterol and cardiovascular outcomes in high cardiovascular risk hypertensive patients: A post-hoc SPRINT data analysis.

Patients at increased cardiovascular (CV) risk, noticeably hypertensive patients, have multiple CV risk factors which may be treatment targets. LDL-cholesterol is one of such targets. Using the SPRINT cohort, studying the cardiovascular outcomes of hypertensive patients at increased CV risk, this post-hoc study aimed to assess the association of LDL-C with CV outcomes.

Pregnancy induced hypertension are very common in women and if unnoticed may lead to severe complications. The appropriate therapy is very much essential for the welfare of both the mother and the child. Hence this study was undertaken to identify the commonly used and safe drugs in pregnancy induced hypertension. This re...

Aortic-flow propagation velocity is associated with proteinuria and left ventricular hypertrophy in newly diagnosed hypertensive patients.

Subclinical target organ damage (TOD) is an important long-term complication of hypertension and is associated with cardiovascular events and death. Aortic-flow propagation velocity (APV) is one of the arterial stiffness parameters. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive value of APV on left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and proteinuria.

Determinants of pulse pressure amplification in hypertensive and diabetic patients.

Hypertensive diabetic patients remain at high cardiovascular risk despite adequate blood pressure and glycemic control. Pulse pressure amplification (PPA) is expressed as the peripheral-to-central PP ratio and provides complementary information for use in assessing cardiovascular risk. The aim of our study was to determine the clinical and biological determinants of PPA in hypertensive and diabetic patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted in 624 patients. Applanation tonometry was used to determine h...

MMP-2: Is too low as bad as too high in the cardiovascular system?

Matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) cleaves a broad spectrum of substrates including extracellular matrix components (responsible for normal tissue remodeling) and cytokines (modulators of the inflammatory response to physiological insults such as tissue damage). MMP-2 expression is elevated in many pathologies (e.g., myocardial infarction, hypertensive heart disease, inflammation) where tissue remodeling and inflammatory responses are perturbed. Thus, it has generally been assumed that blockade of MMP-2 act...

Dosimetric research into target regions and organs at risk in three-dimensional intracavitary brachytherapy techniques for Chinese patients with cervical carcinoma.

The present study aimed to compare the dosages of target regions and organs at risk (OARs) in 3D intracavitary brachytherapy (ICBT) and conventional 2D ICBT for Chinese patients with cervical carcinoma. ICBT was performed in a total of 66 patients with Stage IB to IVA cervical carcinoma who had not received surgery but who had received whole-pelvic external-beam radiotherapy (EBRT). Plans for the 3D-ICBT and the conventional 2D-ICBT were individually designed for every patient. The dosages differences betwe...

High Burden of Subclinical Cardiovascular Target Organ Damage After Pediatric Liver Transplantation.

Cardiovascular (CV) events account for 8% to 13% of deaths after liver transplantation (LT) in adulthood. Although CV risk factors are present, little is known about the prevalence of subclinical CV target organ damage in children after LT. The aim of this prospective observational study was to assess the prevalence of subclinical CV target organ damage in children after LT and to identify risk factors contributing to CV damage as potential targets for clinical intervention. In this study, 104 children afte...

Limits to the treatment of hypertension.

According to the 2011 Dutch guideline on Cardiovascular risk management 1 in 5 hypertensive patients are eligible for blood pressure lowering treatment. The Dutch guideline recommends striving for a systolic blood pressure (SBP) of < 140 mmHg in adult patients who have no cardiovascular disease or diabetes mellitus, while the recent American guideline now recommends an SBP target value of < 130 mmHg for all adult patients. An important reason for using a stricter SBP target value are the results of randomis...

Diurnal variation of renal resistive index over 24-hour period in hypertensive patients and healthy controls.

There are no data in the literature to our knowledge related to changes in renal resistive index (RRI) values over 24-h period and the importance of detecting these changes in patients who have hypertension (HT). In this study, we aimed to investigate the variation of RRI values over 24-h period and its usability in hypertensive patients.
