PURPOSE To develop a protocol to measure the intraocular pressure (IOP) of living mice and to determine the IOP of genetically different mouse strains. METHODS Eyes of anesthetized animals were cannulated with a very fine fluid-filled glass microneedle. The microneedle was connected to a pressure transducer, and the pressure signal was analyzed with a(More)
Nocturnal variations in blood pressure (BP) were associated with carotid intima-media thickness. However, the precise relationship between circadian variations of BP and carotid plaques remains unknown. Therefore, the prognostic value of reverse-dipper pattern of BP for carotid plaque was investigated. In this cross-sectional study, a total of 524(More)
Intra-aortic balloon pump (IABP) has been extensively used in clinical practice as a circulatory-assist device. However, current literature demonstrated significantly varied indications for IABP application and prognosis.The objective of the study was to assess the potential benefits or risks of IABP treatment for acute myocardial infarction (AMI)(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate whether red blood cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with the blood pressure (BP) reverse-dipper pattern in patients with hypertension. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Single centre. PARTICIPANTS Patients with essential hypertension were included in our study (n=708). The exclusion criteria included age <18 or(More)
Recent studies suggested that nocturnal variations of blood pressure (BP) were closely related to type 2 diabetes. However, little information has been revealed about the relationship between reverse-dipper pattern of BP and type 2 diabetes. In this cross-sectional study, BP variations of 531 hypertensive patients were evaluated with ambulatory BP(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the relationship between the level of serum cystatin C (s-CC) and reverse-dipper blood pressure (BP) pattern. DESIGN Cross-sectional study. SETTING Single centre. PARTICIPANTS A total of 718 hypertensive patients were eventually recruited from cardiac clinics between 2012 and 2014 in the Second Affiliated Hospital, Xi'an(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the relationships between nocturnal variations in blood pressure (BP) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) in different gender.This cross-sectional study involved 509 hypertensive patients (254 males and 255 females, 45 to 75 years old) from September 2013 to March 2014. BP values were acquired from ambulatory BP monitoring(More)
