Night-time ambulatory blood pressure is the best pretreatment blood pressure predictor of 11-year mortality in treated older hypertensives.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Oct;23(5):237-243

Department of Renal Medicine, St. George Hospital, University of New South Wales, New South Wales, Australia.

Background: Numerous studies have shown a stronger relationship between ambulatory blood pressure (ABP), particularly night ABP, and cardiovascular events/mortality than for office blood pressure (OBP). A previous clinical trial (Syst-Eur) showed that pretreatment ABP was only a better predictor of outcome than OBP in placebo-treated participants. The current study in treated elderly hypertensives from the Second Australian National Blood Pressure study (ANBP2) examined whether pretreatment ABP was a better predictor of mortality than OBP over long-term (∼11 years) follow-up.

High-intensity handgrip training lowers blood pressure and increases heart rate complexity among postmenopausal women: a pilot study.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Apr;23(2):71-78

Departments of Exercise Sciences, Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

Objective: Handgrip exercise is an emerging strategy for resting blood pressure (BP) reduction requiring minimal time and exercise effort. However, the research literature is currently limited to handgrip protocol designs predominantly prescribing sustained grip contractions, with little assessment of alternative options. Furthermore, our understanding of the utility of handgrip exercise would be strengthened by an evaluation of the physiological mechanisms driving BP reductions and an assessment of the interindividual response variability.

Discerning the relationship between left ventricular geometry, high-sensitivity troponin T, and nondipper hypertension.

Blood Press Monit 2018 Feb;23(1):12-18

Department of Cardiology, Adiyaman Training and Research Hospital, Adiyaman.

Introduction: Hypertension can cause anatomic changes in the left ventricle, generally leading to abnormal geometry. High-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT) values have been shown to be positively correlated with left ventricular hypertrophy in hypertensive patients. The current study investigated the diagnostic value of hs-cTnT in patient with nondipper hypertension (NDH) as well as determined the correlation between left ventricular geometric patterns and hs-cTnT values in hypertensive patients.
