Effect of Chlorthalidone, Amlodipine, and Lisinopril on Visit-to-Visit Variability of Blood Pressure: Results From the Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial.

Editorial

Few randomized trials have compared visit-to-visit variability (VVV) of systolic blood pressure (SBP) across drug classes. The authors compared VVV of SBP among 24,004 participants randomized to chlorthalidone, amlodipine, or lisinopril in the Antihypertensive and Lipid-Lowering Treatment to Prevent Heart Attack Trial (ALLHAT). VVV of SBP was calculated across 5 to 7 visits occurring 6 to 28 months following randomization. The standard deviation (SD) of SBP was 10.6 (SD=5.0), 10.5 (SD=4.9), and 12.2 (SD=5.8) for participants randomized to chlorthalidone, amlodipine, and lisinopril, respectively

Introduction

The Japanese Society of Hypertension revised the Japanese Society of Hypertension Guidelines for the Management of Hypertension in 2009 (JSH 2009) and published the JSH 2014. Basically, the JSH 2014 was prepared according to strategies to prepare the JSH 2009 and the ‘Guidance for the Preparation of Treatment Guidelines in 2007’ established by the Medical Information Network Distribution Service. In the ‘Introduction’ section, methods to prepare the JSH 2014 are introduced.

Blood pressure elevation in hemodialysis patients after the Great East Japan Earthquake

EditorialPor: Yoshihiro Tani, Masaaki Nakayama, Kenichi Tanaka, Yoshimitsu Hayashi, Koichi Asahi, Tatsuhiko Kamata, Masahiko Ogihara, Keiji Sato, Masato Matsushima y Tsuyoshi Watanabe.  Hypertension Research (2014) 37, 139–144.

A major earthquake measuring 9.0 on the Richter scale struck northeastern Japan at 2:46 pm on 11 March 2011. Several reports have described transient increases in blood pressure after major earthquakes, but the impact of such increases on hemodialysis patients has not been reported. We retrospectively investigated changes in blood pressure and influencing factors in 205 patients (mean age 66.6±13.0 years; male 51.7%; median dialysis vintage 6.0 (2.0–11.0) years) on chronic dialysis at three dialysis centers in the affected area (Fukushima City) for 8 weeks after the earthquake.

Nueva Guía 2014 para el Manejo de la Hipertensión Arterial en Adultos (JAMA)

Editorial [http://blogdelhipertenso.blogspot.com]

La prestigiosa revista JAMA (The Journal of the American Medical Association) ha publicado la nueva Guía 2014 basada en la evidencia para el Manejo de la Hipertensión Arterial en Adultos. Es un informe de los miembros de la Joint National Committee (JNC 8). Este informe tiene un enfoque riguroso y basado en la evidencia para recomendar umbrales de tratamiento, objetivos y medicamentos en el tratamiento de la hipertensión arterial en adultos. Se ofrecen una serie de recomendaciones, que os he intentado traducir al español, basadas en la evidencia disponible, y que se resumen a continuación.
