Background/Objectives:As salt preference is known to cause hypertension (HTN), the present study was conducted to assess the impact of preference for salt on sympathovagal imbalance in prehypertensives by spectral analysis of heart rate variability (HRV).Subjects/Methods:Body mass index (BMI), basal heart rate, blood pressure (BP), rate pressure product and(More)
INTRODUCTION Hypertension is a major health issue worldwide. Calcium Channel Blockers (CCBs) are the most commonly used antihypertensive agents. CCBs act on voltage-dependent calcium channels and they were categorized into two subclasses, Dihydropyridine (DHP) and non-Dihydropyridine (non-DHP) derivative. Amlodipine is a third generation L-type of DHP and(More)
We have shown that patients with osteoarthritis are at increased risk of fracture after total knee replacement (TKR). We conducted a population-based cohort study to assess the effect of bisphosphonate use on their post-surgery fracture risk. Cox regression adjusted by propensity score suggested a 50–55% reduction in risk of fracture post-surgery. Patients(More)
INTRODUCTION Amlodipine is a third generation dihydropyridine group of calcium channel blocker and having an excellent antihypertensive profile. Pedal Oedema (PE) is the major drawback of amlodipine therapy and the incidence of Amlodipine Induced Pedal Oedema (AIPE) has been found significantly high. Several neurohumoral factors influence the incidence of(More)
