The purpose of this study is to compare the vascular effects of two commonly used blood pressure medications, carvedilol and metoprolol in hypertensive patients with type 2 diabetes.
To evaluate the effects of two different antihypertensive medications in the drug class of beta-blockers on control of glucose in Type II diabetic patients with high blood pressure.
Metoprolol succinate is a beta1-selective beta-blocker, becoming non-selective at higher doses, while carvedilol is non-selective. We examined whether metoprolol remained beta1-selective ...
This study looks at the effect of two drugs (carvedilol and metoprolol) which are used for patients with CHF (chronic heart failure). These agents are beta-blockers and, although effectiv...
Postoperative new-onset atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common complication stemming from coronary artery bypass graft surgery, and is associated with increased early and late morta...
BACKGROUND Carvedilol is the first-line drug for the primary prophylaxis of variceal bleeding due to portal hypertension (PHT) in liver cirrhosis. This study aimed to investigate the effects of carved...
Real-world tolerability and effectiveness of nebivolol as first add-on therapy were compared with hydrochlorothiazide, metoprolol, and amlodipine. Medical records of hypertensive adults initiating neb...
In a double-blinded, randomized, cross-over trial, we investigated hemodynamic effects of high-dose intravenous lipid emulsion (ILE) with/without metoprolol. Ten healthy volunteers each completed four...
Reliable and easy-to-use LC-MS/MS-method for simultaneous determination of the antihypertensives metoprolol, amlodipine, canrenone and hydrochlorothiazide in patients with therapy-refractory arterial hypertension.
Therapy-refractory arterial hypertension is defined as a blood pressure (BP) in a subset of patients who fail to achieve BP control despite a three-drug regimen (including a diuretic). Various factors...
Carvedilol is a clinically broadly used and effective beta-blocker for treatment of congestive heart failure (CHF) and several clinical trials have demonstrated that carvedilol shows a favourable effe...
A selective adrenergic beta-1-blocking agent with no stimulatory action. It's binding to plasma albumin is weaker than alprenolol and it may be useful in angina pectoris, hypertension, or cardiac arrhythmias.
A condition in pregnant women with elevated systolic (>140 mm Hg) and diastolic (>90 mm Hg) blood pressure on at least two occasions 6 h apart. HYPERTENSION complicates 8-10% of all pregnancies, generally after 20 weeks of gestation. Gestational hypertension can be divided into several broad categories according to the complexity and associated symptoms, such as EDEMA; PROTEINURIA; SEIZURES; abnormalities in BLOOD COAGULATION and liver functions.
Hypertension due to RENAL ARTERY OBSTRUCTION or compression.
Hypertension that occurs without known cause, or preexisting renal disease. Associated polymorphisms for a number of genes have been identified, including AGT, GNB3, and ECE1. OMIM: 145500
Increased pressure within the cranial vault. This may result from several conditions, including HYDROCEPHALUS; BRAIN EDEMA; intracranial masses; severe systemic HYPERTENSION; PSEUDOTUMOR CEREBRI; and other disorders.
