Simvastatin in Patients With Isolated Arterial Hypertension

2014-08-27 03:17:49 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to determine whether combined therapy with simvastatin and hypotensive drugs (ACEI or ARB) may decrease the blood pressure. Moreover, we would like to assess the influence of isolated hypertension on endothelial injury, and on the development of atherosclerosis.

Description

Hypertension is one of the most important predictors of cardiovascular diseases (CVD). Due to the fact that hypertension frequently coexists with hypercholesterolemia and diabetes which increase the risk of CVDs development, it is advisable to use the optimal combined therapy (hypotensive + hypolipidemic + hypoglycemic)in this group of patients. Statins are the most effective and widely used drugs for the treatment of hypercholesterolemia. According to the available experimental and clinical data they may decrease the blood pressure (BP) in normotensive and hypertensive patients. However, it is still difficult to determine to what degree the reduction of both blood pressure and cardiovascular risk is due to hypotensive or hypolipidemic/pleiotropic effects of statins.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Familial or idiopathic hypertension in the PULMONARY CIRCULATION which is not secondary to other disease.

The active alterations of vascular wall structures, often leading to elevated VASCULAR RESISTANCE. It is associated with AGING; ATHEROSCLEROSIS; DIABETES MELLITUS; HYPERTENSION; PREGNANCY; PULMONARY HYPERTENSION; and STROKE, but is also a normal part of EMBRYOGENESIS.
