Essential hypertension can be defined as a rise in blood pressure of unknown cause that increases risk for cerebral, cardiac, and renal events. In industrialised countries, the risk of becoming hypertensive (blood pressure >140/90 mm Hg) during a lifetime exceeds 90%. Essential hypertension usually clusters with other cardiovascular risk factors such as ageing, being overweight, insulin resistance, diabetes, and hyperlipidaemia. Subtle target-organ damage such as left-ventricular hypertrophy… Expand
CARDIOVASCULAR REGULATION AND VASCULAR STRUCTURE IN PREHYPERTENSION AND CORONARY HEART DISEASE
TLDR
Subjects with prehypertension show increased lability of myocardial repolarization, impaired baroreflex function and increased intimal wall thickness, which may contribute to the increased risk for cardiovascular mortality and morbidity previously reported in the studied populations. Expand
Neurological complications of systemic hypertension.
Systemic hypertension is the most common, most easily diagnosed, and one of the most reversible risk factors for neurologic pathology. Acute severe hypertension above a mean arterial pressure ofExpand
Arterial hypertension after age 65: from epidemiology and pathophysiology to therapy Do we know where we stand?
TLDR
It is recommended that for most patients aged 65 years or more, standard office systolic blood pressure should be cautiously reduced to within 140 and 130 mmHg, preferably with a thiazide-like diuretic, long acting dihydropiridine calcium channel blocker or their combination. Expand
Calcium Antagonists and Hypertension: Role of co-existent coronary disease, impaired renal function and diabetes
TLDR
ACTION demonstrated that the addition of nifedipine GITS to the conventional treatment of angina pectoris is safe, has no impact on major cardiovascular event-free survival and reduces the need for coronary angiography and interventions. Expand
AMELIORATION OF HYPERTENSION IN PATIENTS WITH TYPE 2 DIABETES —
Diabetes and hypertension are 2 of the most potent risk factors for the development of cardiovascular disease, and they rarely exist in isolation. In fact, hypertension and diabetes are inextricablyExpand
Effects of cardiac complications on cardiovascular events in Japanese high-risk hypertensive patients: subanalysis of the CASE-J trial.
TLDR
Cardiac complications are independent predictors for cardiovascular events in Japanese high-risk hypertensive patients, in particular, LVH is related to cerebrovascular events and IHD isrelated to cardiac death and other cardiac events. Expand
Device-based therapies for arterial hypertension
TLDR
Novel strategies to improve blood pressure control and treat drug-resistant hypertension are needed despite the efficacy and widespread availability of current antihypertensive drugs, including renal sympathetic denervation. Expand
Co-Existing Hypertension in Neurosurgery
TLDR
In this chapter, classification of hypertension and its causes, pathophysiology, the brain-heart interaction, preoperative evaluation, various causes of perioperative hypertension, and its management are discussed in detail. Expand
A Study on Microalbuminuria in Non-Diabetic Hypertensive Patients Attending a Tertiary Care Hospital in South India
BACKGROUND Essential hypertension represents 90 – 95 % of all instances of hypertension. Microalbuminuria was observed to be related to increased chances of coronary artery disease even in patientsExpand
