Evaluation of blood pressure profile in chronic hemodialysis patients using two measurement methods: Home blood pressure measurement and conventional measurement.

Saudi J Kidney Dis Transpl 2019 Sep-Oct;30(5):1038-1043

Department of Nephrology, Cheikh Anta Diop University; Department of Nephrology, Aristide Le Dantec University Hospital, Dakar, Senegal.

The monitoring of hypertension (HTN) in dialysis is often delicate with potentially false measurements due to the white coat effect on the one hand and masked HTN (M-HTN) on the other hand. In this population, there is much controversy over the ideal moment for taking blood pressure (BP) and the target values. An answer to these questions is given by home BP measurement that can detect white coat HTN (WC-HTN) and M-HTN. Read More

Size at birth, weight gain in infancy and childhood, and adult blood pressure in 5 low- and middle-income-country cohorts: when does weight gain matter?

Am J Clin Nutr 2009 May 18;89(5):1383-92. Epub 2009 Mar 18.

University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Chapel Hill, NC, USA.

Background: Promoting catch-up growth in malnourished children has health benefits, but recent evidence suggests that accelerated child weight gain increases adult chronic disease risk.

Objective: We aimed to determine how birth weight (BW) and weight gain to midchildhood relate to blood pressure (BP) in young adults.

Design: We pooled data from birth cohorts in Brazil, Guatemala, India, the Philippines, and South Africa. Read More

Long-term severe pulmonary hypertension associated with right atrial myxoma.

Chest 1992 Jul;102(1):301-3

Section of Thoracic Surgery, Medical College of Georgia, Augusta 30912-4040.

An 18-year-old black woman presented with marginally compensated right heart failure, severe pulmonary hypertension, tricuspid incompetence, and right atrial myxoma. Catheterization suggested a substantial reactive component to her P-HTN, especially to nifedipine. Initial management consisted of excision of two right atrial myxomas and tricuspid annuloplasty, and postdischarge management with nifedipine, 30 mg four times daily. Read More
