A study was carried out to evaluate the influence of antihypertensive treatment with a calcium antagonist on left ventricular hypertrophy and to estimate left ventricular performance after reversal of myocardial hypertrophy. Ten essential hypertensives (age 45 +/- 2 years; WHO class II) underwent an M-mode echocardiogram guided by two-dimensional(More)
The purpose of this study was to verify if microalbuminuria (AER) could be an early feature of renal hemodynamic changes in essential hypertension. Fifty-three patients with newly diagnosed essential hypertension (EH) underwent 24-hour blood pressure monitoring (24h-BP). Furthermore, AER and glomerular filtration rate (GFR) were evaluated by obtaining(More)
Malignant hypertension developed in an 18-year-old man whose primary hypertension had been diagnosed by chance. Standing blood pressure was 290/170 mmHg. Tests of renal function revealed high blood urea nitrogen and creatinine levels and low levels of both effective renal plasma flow and the glomerular filtration rate. Plasma renin activity and levels of(More)
We studied 45 hypertensive subjects to evaluate the usefulness of captopril test for identifying renal artery stenosis and small congenital kidney with the hypoplasia of the renal artery. In 18 hypertensives with hippuran renogram indicating renovascular disease, and in 27 essential hypertensives, the plasma renin activity (PRA) responses to an oral test(More)
BACKGROUND New approaches to cope with clinical and psychosocial aspects of type 2 diabetes (T2DM) are needed; gender influences the complex interplay between clinical and non-clinical factors. We used data from the BENCH-D study to assess gender-differences in terms of clinical and person-centered measures in T2DM. METHODS Clinical quality of care(More)
Recently, it has been showed that Epinephrine (E) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of essential hypertension in rats. Furthermore, some literature data demonstrated the existence of high E plasma levels at rest and after stress in essential hypertension. To evaluate the sympatho-adrenal activity, both in basal condition and after stress, and its(More)
