Postexercise hypotension as a clinical tool: a "single brick" in the wall.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Dec 24;12(12):e59-e64. Epub 2018 Oct 24.

Exercise Hemodynamic Laboratory, School of Physical Education and Sport, University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

After an exercise session, a reduction of blood pressure (BP) is expected, a phenomenon called postexercise hypotension (PEH). PEH as a predictor of chronic training responses for BP has been broadly explored. It suggests that when PEH occurs after each exercise sessions, its benefits may summate over time, contributing to the chronic adaptation. Read More

National trends in the emergency department management of adult patients with elevated blood pressure from 2005 to 2015.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Dec 14;12(12):858-866. Epub 2018 Oct 14.

Departments of Emergency Medicine & Epidemiology, Brown University, Providence, RI, USA.

Emergency department (ED)-based screening and referral of patients with elevated blood pressure (BP) are recommended by 2006 and 2013 American College of Emergency Physicians guidelines; however, it is unknown if these recommendations or disparities in care impact clinical practice. The objectives of the study were to assess temporal trends in antihypertensive prescriptions, outpatient follow-up referrals, and diagnosis of hypertension (HTN)/elevated BP and to identify potential disparities by patient characteristics. Using the 2005-2015 National Hospital Ambulatory Medical Care Survey, we examined the frequency and trends over time of antihypertensive prescriptions, outpatient follow-up referrals, and BP diagnoses for US ED visits by adult patients with an elevated triage BP and identified potential disparities in management by patient demography and socioeconomic status.

Predicting the risk of apparent treatment-resistant hypertension: a longitudinal, cohort study in an urban hypertension referral clinic.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Nov 20;12(11):809-817. Epub 2018 Sep 20.

Division of General Internal Medicine, Department of Internal Medicine, Hypertension Section, Southern Illinois University School of Medicine, Springfield, IL, USA. Electronic address:

Apparent treatment-resistant hypertension (aTRH) is associated with higher prevalence of secondary hypertension, greater risk for adverse pressure-related clinical outcomes, and influences diagnostic and therapeutic decision-making. We previously showed that cross-sectional prevalence estimates of aTRH are lower than its true prevalence as patients with uncontrolled hypertension undergoing intensification/optimization of therapy will, over time, increasingly satisfy diagnostic criteria for aTRH. aTRH was assessed in an urban referral hypertension clinic using a 140/90 mm Hg goal blood pressure target in 745 patients with uncontrolled blood pressure, who were predominately African-American (86%) and female (65%).

Academic Division-Research, Ochsner Clinic Foundation, New Orleans, LA, USA. Electronic address:

Berecek et al reported in the 1990s that when spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) mating pairs were treated with captopril and the resulting pups were continued on the drug for 2 months followed by drug discontinuation, the pups did not develop full blown hypertension, and the cardiovascular structural changes associated with hypertension in SHR were mitigated. The offspring of the pups also displayed diminished hypertension and structural changes, suggesting that the drug therapy produced a heritable amelioration of the SHR phenotype. This observation is reviewed. Read More

A concise predictive nomogram for renal artery stenosis in selective patients undergoing coronary angiography.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Oct 25;12(10):732-741.e1. Epub 2018 Jul 25.

Department of Cardiology, Vascular Center, Guangdong Cardiovascular Institute, Guangdong Provincial Key Laboratory of Coronary Heart Disease Prevention, Guangdong General Hospital, Guangdong Academy of Medical Sciences, Guangzhou, Guangdong, China. Electronic address:

As reported scoring systems of renal artery stenosis (RAS) screening were not easily validated, we further proposed a simple method to predict or rule out RAS in selective patients undergoing coronary angiography (CAG). After preliminary inclusive criterion (severe hypertension or atherosclerosis, flash pulmonary edema, or unexplained renal dysfunction), 503 and 158 consecutive patients undergoing renal arteriography at the timing of CAG were separately enrolled between 2012 and 2015, and 2016 and 2017 as the development and validation cohort. A nomogram was derived from the multivariable logistic regression model, and its accuracy was assessed by the area under the receiver operating characteristic. Read More

Arginine impairs endothelial and executive function in older subjects with cardiovascular risk.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Oct 10;12(10):723-731. Epub 2018 Jul 10.

Division of Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Hypertension, Brigham and Women's Hospital, Boston, MA, USA. Electronic address:

Neurovascular coupling, the relationship between cerebral blood flow and neuronal activity, is attenuated in patients with impaired executive function. We tested the hypothesis that peripheral vascular function may associate with executive function in older subjects with cardiovascular risk factors and that treatment with the antioxidant L-arginine would improve both vascular and executive function. Nineteen subjects with type 2 diabetes mellitus and/or controlled hypertension were enrolled. Read More

Effective dissemination of health information to a desired population can be a challenging and expensive process, particularly to Chinese-Americans. Print and radio advertisements are limited by geographic, language, cost, and demographic barriers. The expense and efforts necessary to overcome these challenges can delay the distribution of knowledge and make it more expensive than necessary. Read More

Measurement of pulse wave velocity, augmentation index, and central pulse pressure in atrial fibrillation: a proof of concept study.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Aug 30;12(8):627-632. Epub 2018 Jun 30.

Division of Nephrology, Ghent University Hospital, Ghent, Belgium.

Individualized weighing of the risk benefit of anticoagulation is recommended in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) who have low established risk scores or, conversely, are at increased risk for bleeding. Parameters of arterial stiffness and wave reflection could improve risk stratification, but their use has not been evaluated in arrhythmia. We measured carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV), central augmentation index (AI), and central pulse pressure (CPP) using the SphygmoCor system in 34 patients (53 to 85 years; 25 males) with AF before and after elective electrical cardioversion.

Secondary hypertension due to a juxtaglomerular cell tumor.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Sep 7;12(9):637-640. Epub 2018 Jun 7.

Internal Medicine I Department, Centro Hospitalar Lisboa Norte - Hospital de Santa Maria, Lisbon Medical Faculty, Lisbon, Portugal.

Juxtaglomerular cell tumors are rare, generally benign, and they are one of the secondary surgically treatable causes of arterial hypertension. There are about 100 reported cases on literature, and the diagnosis is usually carried out based on a high clinic suspicion index, mostly in patients with hypokalemia and arterial hypertension. The diagnosis involves blood tests and imaging studies, but it is only definite with histopathological exam after surgical treatment. Read More

Impact of intradialytic blood pressure changes on cardiovascular outcomes is independent of the volume status of maintenance hemodialysis patients.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Nov 28;12(11):779-788. Epub 2018 Jun 28.

Department of Internal Medicine, Chung-Ang University Hospital, Chung-Ang University College of Medicine, Dongjak-gu, Seoul, Korea. Electronic address:

Intradialytic systolic blood pressure (SBP) changes are related to the volume status; however, whether SBP change impacts on adverse outcomes depends on the volume status remains uncertain. We retrospectively investigated the relationship among intradialytic changes in SBP, cardiovascular outcomes, and volume status in maintenance hemodialysis patients. We determined SBP changes (ΔSBP) as postdialysis SBP minus predialysis SBP and volume status as the ratio of extracellular water to total body water (ECW/TBW) using bioelectrical impedance analysis.

Cumulative dose of bevacizumab associates with albuminuria rather than podocyturia in cancer patients.

J Am Soc Hypertens 2018 Nov 18;12(11):e1-e7. Epub 2018 Jun 18.

Department of Internal Medicine, Amphia Hospital, Breda, The Netherlands. Electronic address:

Angiogenesis inhibition with bevacizumab, a monoclonal antibody against vascular endothelial growth factor A (VEGF-A), is an anticancer treatment associated with hypertension and renal glomerular toxicity referred to as a preeclampsia-like syndrome. In preeclampsia, podocyturia predates proteinuria and clinical features of preeclampsia, and is regarded as a biomarker of ongoing glomerular injury. Using a quantitative polymerase chain reaction of the podocyte-specific molecules nephrin, podocin, and VEGF-A in the urine, we examined whether podocyturia is present in bevacizumab-treated cancer patients, and whether it relates to proteinuria and the cumulative dose of bevacizumab.
