The pulse wave velocity (PWV) threshold for hypertensive target organ damage is presently set at 10 meters per second. New 24-hour monitors (eg, BPLab® and Vasotens®) provide several PWV measurements over a period of 24-72 hours. A new parameter, ie, the Pulse Time Index of Norm (PTIN), can be calculated from these data. The PTIN is defined as the(More)
Treatment of chronic diseases, such as arterial hypertension, is always a difficult decision for cardiologist. As the majority of hypertensive patients are of older age, they also have many comorbid diseases. Optimized treatment is supposed to be targeted to the specific cluster of comorbidities.

Dynamics of blood pressure (BP) and heart rate (HR) was traced by automatic monitoring every 30 min uninterruptedly along several months in a patient suffering from combined atrial fibrillation and heart failure during the development of disease and its therapeutic and surgical treatment (pacemaker implanting and atrioventricular ablation). Analyses of(More)
BACKGROUND Sleep-disordered breathing is common in heart failure (HF), and prolonged circulation time and diminished pulmonary volume are considered the main possible causes of sleep apnea in these patients. However, the impact and interrelation between sleep apnea and HF development are unclear. We report the case of a patient with complete elimination of(More)
Objective To assess the incidence and predictors of heart rhythm and conduction disturbances in hypertensive obese patients with and without obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Methods This is an open, cohort, prospective study. Out of 493 screened patients, we selected 279 hypertensive, obese individuals without severe concomitant diseases: 75 patients without(More)
