The purpose of this study is to estimate the effect of spironolactone on blood pressure resistant to therapy in type-2 diabetics.
The primary object of the study is to estimate the effect of addition of low dose spironolactone to antihypertensive treatment with at least three antihypertensive drugs in patients with type-2 diabetes and blood pressure over 130/80 mmHg.
Secondary aims are to estimate how many of these patients have their blood pressure controlled by the addition of spironolactone, to investigate whether the addition of spironolactone affects insulin sensitivity and urinary protein secretion and to estimate the incidence of adverse effects of the aldosterone antagonist.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Placebo Control, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Primary Purpose: Treatment

The purpose of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of spironolactone on lowering blood pressure when added to therapy in patients with resistant arterial hypertension.
The purpose of this study is to determine whether a larger dose of the aldosterone antagonist spironolactone combined with an ACE inhibitor (captopril) and a beta-blocker (carvedilol) is e...
The purpose of this study is to determine if patiromer treatment in chronic kidney disease (CKD) subjects receiving spironolactone for the treatment of resistant hypertension will result i...
The Renin-Angiotensin-Aldosterone-system is important in the development of cardiovascular organ damage caused by arterial hypertension. This study aims at evaluating the importance of ald...
The present study investigated the long-term (12 months) effect of spironolactone treatment on glucose homeostasis, metabolic parameters and vascular properties.
The present study is to investigate whether spironolactone is better than hydrochlorothiazide (HCTZ) for blood pressure (BP) control and arterial stiffness improvement. Five-hundred-sixty-six uncontro...
Renal denervation and spironolactone have both been proposed for the treatment of resistant hypertension, but their effects on preclinical target organ damage have not been compared. Twenty-four patie...
Recent evidence suggests that the mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist spironolactone should be the preferred fourth line antihypertensive treatment in resistant hypertension (RHTN). Whether spironol...
In the PATHWAY-2 study of resistant hypertension, spironolactone reduced blood pressure substantially more than conventional antihypertensive drugs. We did three substudies to assess the mechanisms un...
Left ventricular structural and functional changes in patients with arterial hypertension are well established. However, the influence of arterial hypertension on right ventricular (RV) remodeling is ...
Common occlusive arterial disease which is caused by ATHEROSCLEROSIS. It is characterized by lesions in the innermost layer (ARTERIAL INTIMA) of arteries including the AORTA and its branches to the extremities. Risk factors include smoking, HYPERLIPIDEMIA, and HYPERTENSION.
A birth defect characterized by the narrowing of the AORTA that can be of varying degree and at any point from the transverse arch to the iliac bifurcation. Aortic coarctation causes arterial HYPERTENSION before the point of narrowing and arterial HYPOTENSION beyond the narrowed portion.
Persistently high systemic arterial BLOOD PRESSURE. Based on multiple readings (BLOOD PRESSURE DETERMINATION), hypertension is currently defined as when SYSTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently greater than 140 mm Hg or when DIASTOLIC PRESSURE is consistently 90 mm Hg or more.
A syndrome characterized by the clinical triad of advanced chronic liver disease, pulmonary vascular dilatations, and reduced arterial oxygenation (HYPOXEMIA) in the absence of intrinsic cardiopulmonary disease. This syndrome is common in the patients with LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL).
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of medium and large muscular ARTERIES with lesions in the innermost layer of the artery (ARTERIAL INTIMA). This disease process of atherogenesis includes the retention of cholesterol-rich LIPOPROTEINS and their binding to PROTEOGLYCANS in the arterial intima, generation of proinflammatory molecules that recruit MACROPHAGES to the subendothelial space, formation of FOAM CELLS, and eventual calcification of the arterial wall. These arterial plaques (atheromas) contain CARBOHYDRATES; BLOOD; and CALCIUM.
