Dopamine (DA) is one of the main catecholamines in mammals. Its major role as a brain neurotransmitter is well known as well as its contribution to the development of pathologies, mainly arterial hypertension. Traditionally, dopamine receptors are divided into two families according to the stimulation or inhibition they may produce at the adenyl cyclase level. Five dopamine receptors have been identified: D1 (D1a) and D5 (D1b) exist in the D1 family. D2s, D2l, D3 and D4 belong ...
This study evaluates if : 1 ) the plasma aldosterone concentration and blood pressure change in response to roxithromycin could be useful for the screening of PA patients carrying a KCNJ5-mutated APA; 2) the change of PAC in response to mutated KCNJ5 channel is truly occurring in KCNJ5-mutated APA.
Renal sympathetic denervation from the intima of renal arteries has become an important method for the treatment of resistant hypertension, but renal sympathetic nerve are mainly located in the adventitia, and there is no report about renal sympathetic denervation from the renal adventitia. Primary aldosteronism is an important factor of secondary hypertension, tumor aldosterone in unilateral adrenal can increase the concentration of plasma aldosterone, in some patients blood p...
Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second most common cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in Korea. Colonoscopy with polypectomy decreases the incidence and mortality from colorectal cancer. However, significant lesions can be missed during colonoscopy. Recent retrospective studies have shown that fellow involvement as a second observer may increase adenoma detection rate in colonoscopy. The aim of this prospective, multicenter, randomized study is to evaluate the ...
To study the in vivo expression of dopamine D2 receptors in nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma and the predictive role of dopamine dopamine D2 receptors PET-MR imaging in the therapeutic effect of dopamine agonists（DA）.
Hypothesis-- Nurse observation in addition to the colonoscopist while withdrawing the colonoscope from the cecum leads to a greater adenoma detection rate. Methods- Patients presenting for screening colonoscopy are randomized to nurse observation or usual practice. Risk factors for adenoma development and the adenoma detection rate in each group will be evaluated.
Animal models have demonstrated the role of aldosterone in left ventricular remodeling involving fibrosis, apoptosis and hypertrophy. Myocardial fibrosis is a risk factor for serious arrhythmia and sudden death in ischemic and idiopathic hypertrophic heart disease. It is accepted that patients with primary aldosteronism have a higher prevalence of LV hypertrophy , arterial involvement and increased cardiovascular risk. In humans, a link has been demonstrated between aldosterone...
Determine the effect of aldosterone on how the body handles glucose (sugar).
Resistant hypertension is defined as hypertension not controlled (i.e. blood pressure not below 140/90 mmHg) with the use of adequate doses of at least three different anti-hypertensives including a diuretic. Resistant hypertension is abundant. In the ALLHAT trial 34% of patients did not reach the blood pressure goal of 140/90 mmHg. One possible mechanism of resistance is the aldosterone-escape phenomenon. During aldosterone escape, aldosterone plasma levels are normal or even...
This prospective cohort study will investigate the physiology and progression of autonomous aldosterone secretion.
The improvement of conventional imaging techniques has led to an increased detection rate of different adrenal tumors. Since those tumors can belong to a variety of entities the therapeutic consequences also show considerable variation. In order to definitely determine the type of tumor, invasive procedures like CT guided biopsies are often required, which could be avoided by a tumor specific imaging method. The presently available scintigraphic procedures are either time consu...
This is a prospective randomized trial comparing the adenoma detection rate of LCI with NBI. Eligible patients are randomly allocated in a 1:1 ratio to undergo tandem colonoscopy with LCI (LCI group) or NBI (NBI group). Randomization will be carried out by computer generated random sequences and stratified according to endoscopist's experiences (experienced versus fellows) and indications of colonoscopy (symptomatic vs screening/surveillance). The primary outcome of this study...
Rationale: Primary hyperaldosteronism (PA) is the most frequent form of secondary hypertension. In PA autonomous hypersecretion of aldosterone by one or both adrenal glands causes hypertension that is often refractory to treatment. PA is usually caused by either a unilateral aldosterone-producing (micro)adenoma (APA) or by bilateral adrenal hyperplasia (BAH). Distinction between APA and BAH is critical since the former is treated with the aim of cure by adrenalectomy, and the ...
To investigate whether MRI is able to predict the exact anatomy and topography of the sphenoid sinus and its relationship to the sellar, parasellar und paraclinoid region and where CT yields more detailed information for the surgeon before trans-sphenoidal pituitary adenoma surgery.
Clinically nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma remains the only pituitary tumor subtype for which no effective medical therapy is available or recommended. We will evaluate the use of cabergoline in a clinical trial, in order to define the efficacy of this treatment in nonfunctioning pituitary adenoma.
Vascular and cardiac alterations are associated with aldosterone effects are evidenced in experimental models and aldosterone receptor blockade is of clear benefit in cardiac disease (heart failure). The study aims at assessing vascular and cardiac alterations in adults with a chronic increase in circulating aldosterone without hypertension. The investigated population will be patients with a rare disease, pseudohypoaldosteronism type 1, due to heterozygous inactivating mutatio...
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 aldosterone with regard to hypertension induced damage to the heart. In order to do this the investigators will perform a comparative cross-sectional study in hypertensives and normotensives. In addition as interventional part the hypertensives will be treated with a mineralocorticoid-receptor bl...
Pituitary adenoma can be difficult to cure with approximately a third of patients in contemporary series' undergoing incomplete resection. Over the last decade or so a handful of groups have described the use intraoperative ultrasound to improve resection. Although limited, these proof-of-concept studies suggest intraoperative ultrasound is a safe and effective technological adjunct to transsphenoidal surgery for pituitary adenoma. In this prospective development study 30 adul...
The purposes of the study are to evaluate the relative contributions of insulin resistance and renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system to blood pressure (BP) in subjects with prehypertension. This is a cross-sectional study. Anthropometric and BP measurements will be performed in 50 prehypertensive subjects. The subjects will receive a 75-g oral glucose tolerance test and a postural stimulation test for the measurements of insulin resistance, plasma rennin concentration and ald...
This is a prospective randomized crossover trial comparing the proximal adenoma detection rate and miss rate by blue laser imaging (BLI), narrow band imaging or white light colonoscopy.
This is a prospective randomised controlled trial to assess an intervention of inspection during both phases of colonoscopic examination ( insertion and withdrawal) improve adenoma detection rate when compared to inspection only during withdrawal.
The primary aim of this study is - to explore the usefulness of re-examination and retroflexion on adenoma miss rate (AMR) in the proximal colon.

The importance of Aldosterone for endothelial function and Insulin resistance observed within patients with type 2 diabetes
Introduction and objectives: The adenoma detection rate (ADR) has been investigated as a formal method in the evaluation of a trainee or resident physician. Several studies have suggested that water-assisted colonoscopy methods increase the ADR, especially in the right colon, when compared to air-insufflated methods alone. The objective of this study is to compare the adenoma detection rates between the techniques of the second frontal view examination and "Underwater" examinat...
Adenoma detection in the main goal of screening colonoscopy. In order to detect adenomas it is mandatory to spend a long enough time investigating the colonic mucosa. A minimum observation time of 6 minutes has been proposed as a quality criterion for screening colonoscopy. However, different locations of the colon (proximal, distal) may require specific observation time periods. The colon can be divided into a proximal (right) and distal (left) part. Until now, it is unclear w...
