Background/aims . Aortic stenosis (AS) and hypertension are associated with cardiac hypertrophy and aortic dilatation. The effect of their coincidence on the ascending aortic dimensions has not yet been evaluated, and therefore was the aim of our study. Methods . We performed cross‐sectional...
Objective. Rosiglitazone (RSG) has been reported to reduce blood pressure (BP) in patients with type‐2 diabetes, but similar effects in non‐diabetic people with insulin resistance is less clear. Our aim was to test the long‐term BP‐lowering effects of RSG compared with placebo. Methods....
Cardiovascular and renal diseases share many of the same risk factors. In fact, renal failure is usually accompanied by an increased global cardiovascular risk. Thus, preservation of kidney function might simultaneously protect the heart and the brain and, conversely, addressing cardiovascular...
Background . The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure (BP) provides guideline for the new category of BP levels as normal, prehypertension (PHT), and hypertension. Although PHT is associated with a markedly...
Background . ACCOMPLISH is a “new‐generation” hypertension trial assessing single‐tablet combination therapy for initial treatment of high‐risk hypertension. At baseline, 97% of subjects were treated with anti‐hypertensive medication at entry, but only 37% of participants had blood...
This study aimed to assess blood pressure (BP) profile, BP control, left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) and albumin/creatinine ratio (ACR) in urine after 5 years of antihypertensive treatment in subjects with newly diagnosed essential hypertension. Fifty‐four subjects were included and...
Hypertension has been associated with changes in endothelial function in both large muscular arteries and small resistance arteries. We evaluated the relationship between blood flow velocity and dilatation of the brachial artery following transient forearm ischemia and acetylcholine‐induced...
Background . Sleep is a basic physiological process. Normal sleep yields decrease in sympathetic activity, blood pressure (BP) and heart rate. Those, who do not have expected decrease in their BP are considered “non‐dippers”. We aimed to determine if there was any association between the...
