Exactly how hypertension causes end organ damage and vascular events is poorly understood. Yet the concept that underlying “usual” blood pressure (BP) accounts for all BP-related risk of vascular events and for the benefits of BP-lowering drugs has come to underpin clinical guidelines on the diagnosis and treatment of hypertension. This article reviews evidence that variability in BP also predicts risk of stroke and other vascular events independently of mean BP and evidence that drug-class… Expand
Blood Pressure Variability: Prognostic Value and Therapeutic Implications
TLDR
There is a need for additional clinical studies specifically designed for the study of the relevance of short-term and long-term BPV control by antihypertensive drugs. Expand
Stabilizing blood pressure variability : a new therapeutic target in hypertension
  • 2012
MEDICOGRAPHIA, Vol 34, No. 1, 2012 25 B lood pressure variability (BPV), recognized for many years as being a risk for cardiovascular outcome, has recently become a focus of attention because of aExpand
Blood pressure variability : measurement and clinical implications
TLDR
It is found that changes in mean BP levels, but not BPV, were most relevant to changes in organ damage in patients with uncomplicated hypertension, and BPV appears to offer limited clinical utility in this patient population. Expand
Lowering of Blood Pressure for Recurrent Stroke Prevention
TLDR
Some expert opinion suggests that management of high vascular risk patients with hypertension remains aggressive for now until specific compelling trial evidence is available, and the importance of optimizing recurrent stroke prevention to lessen the personal and societal burden of stroke cannot be overemphasized. Expand
Effect of Vitamin D Supplementation on Aortic Stiffness and Arterial Hemodynamics in People With Osteoarthritis and Vitamin D Deficiency.
TLDR
Increased aortic stiffness, peripheral blood pressure, and central hemodynamic parameters independently predict cardiovascular events and all-cause mortality and BP variability has been shown to be an independent predictor of cardiovascular risk. Expand
Relationships of vascular function with measures of ambulatory blood pressure variation.
TLDR
Although rate of BP variation was associated with measures of endothelial and smooth muscle cell function, relationships were attenuated after accounting for age and BP. Expand
Visit-to-Visit Blood Pressure Variability and Mortality and Cardiovascular Outcomes Among Older Adults: The Health, Aging, and Body Composition Study
TLDR
Visit-to-visit DBP variability and considerable changes in DBP and SBP were risk factors for mortality in the elderly and were related to higher all-cause and CV mortality. Expand
Alteration of vascular function is an important factor in the correlation between visit-to-visit blood pressure variability and cardiovascular disease
TLDR
Altered arterial functions, such as macrovascular atherosclerosis and vascular resistance, are responsible for the correlations between visit-to-visit SBP variability and incidence of CVD and mortality rate. Expand
Role of Ambulatory Blood Pressure Monitoring in Resistant Hypertension
TLDR
The present paper will critically review the main features of ambulatory blood pressure monitoring in resistant hypertension, with particular emphasis on the diagnosis and treatment of this high-risk hypertensive state. Expand
Long-Term Effects of Renal Denervation on Blood Pressure Burden in Patients with Resistant Arterial Hypertension
TLDR
The pronounced improvement of BPB in responders to renal denervation may be an important clinical component of this interventional treatment for arterial hypertension. Expand

Limitations of the usual blood-pressure hypothesis and importance of variability, instability, and episodic hypertension
Although hypertension is the most prevalent treatable vascular risk factor, how it causes end-organ damage and vascular events is poorly understood. Yet, a widespread belief exists that underlyingExpand

TLDR
The simple examination of orthostatic BP changes using a self-measured home BP monitoring, through which abnormal pathological conditions can be detected with high reproducibility without the white-coat effect, helps clarify the mechanism of Orthostatic hypertension. Expand
Effects of β blockers and calcium-channel blockers on within-individual variability in blood pressure and risk of stroke
TLDR
The opposite effects of calcium-channel blockers and beta blockers on variability of blood pressure account for the disparity in observed effects on risk of stroke and expected effects based on mean blood pressure. Expand

TLDR
Clinical trials are necessary before the widespread use of blood pressure variability as a predictor of hypertensive organ damage and a new strategy for the treatment of hypertension is widespread. Expand
Awake Blood Pressure Variability, Inflammatory Markers and Target Organ Damage in Newly Diagnosed Hypertension
TLDR
In recently diagnosed hypertensive subjects, hsCRP and sE-selectin levels are related to awake SBP levels, and high SBP variability is likely associated with vascular inflammation in newly diagnosed hypertension, independent of SBP. Expand
Cardiovascular protection and blood pressure reduction: a meta-analysis
TLDR
Meta-regression showed that odds ratios could be explained by achieved differences in systolic pressure, and all antihypertensive drugs have similar long-term efficacy and safety. Expand
Evaluation of hypertension and related target organ damage by average day-time blood pressure.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that blood pressure variability also contributes to the degree of target organ damage since for equal average day-time pressures a greater severity of cardiovascular complications was observed in patients with the highestBlood pressure variability and the highest peaks of pressure.

TLDR
A retrospective case-control study suggested that office BP variability was an independent predictor of brain infarction, and either the Max-deltaBP or the BP-range may be surrogate indices of diastolic BP variability. Expand
Prognostic significance of visit-to-visit variability, maximum systolic blood pressure, and episodic hypertension
TLDR
Visit-to-visit variability in systolic blood pressure (SBP) and maximum SBP are strong predictors of stroke, independent of mean SBP. Expand
Relation of Blood Pressure Variability to Carotid Atherosclerosis and Carotid Artery and Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
TLDR
In the present study, awake BP variability was weakly but independently associated with carotid artery cross-sectional area, a measure of arterial hypertrophy, however, neither systolic nor diastolicBP variability was independently associatedWith carotids atherosclerotic plaque or LV mass. Expand
