In this study the results are presented of the haemodynamic and endocrinological inventarisation of 207 patients with essential hypertension. After establishing the relations of the various parameters with age (part IIA), interrelations between these variables are described (part IIB). The general finding is an increase in total peripheral vascular(More)
1. The cardio-renal haemodynamic and endocrine effects of the anti-hypertensive agents 2-(2,6-dichlorophenylamine)-2-imidazoline hydrochloride (clonidine, St 155) and 2-(5-fluor-o-toluidine)-2-imidazoline hydrochloride (St 600) were investigated in twelve patients with essential hypertension. 2. The anti-hypertensive action of both compounds was similar and(More)
The effects of the antihypertensive imidazoline compounds 2-(5 fluor-0-toluidine)-2-imidazoline hydrochloride (ST 600) and 2-(2, 6 dichlorophenylamine)-2-imidazoline hydrochloride (ST 155, catapres) on intra-arterial pressure, cardiac output, stroke volume, heart rate, total peripheral resistance, renal blood flow, glomerular filtration rate, renal vascular(More)
The effect of propranolol on diurnal variability of BP and plasma noradrenaline levels was assessed in 15 patients with uncomplicated essential hypertension. While total variability and average noradrenaline level remained unaltered, the pressor range (difference between basal and maximum BP readings) was reduced in most patients. An inverse relationship(More)
We report the case of a female patient with congenital complete atrioventricular block who developed torsade de pointes (TdP) in the course of takotsubo cardiomyopathy. On the basis of this case, we show that the electrocardiographic evolutionary changes with QT interval prolongation (in the course of takotsubo cardiomyopathy) may be a TdP threatening(More)
1. In eighteen subjects with mild to moderate hypertension the effectiveness of the new vasodilator drug L6150 (Lepetit) was studied. Its mechanism of action was identified by systemic and renal blood flow measurements and by estimating changes in plasma renin and aldosterone concentration and plasma volume. The reflexly induced hyperkinetic circulatory(More)
