The influence of aging on the diagnosis of primary aldosteronism

Primary aldosteronism (PA) is common in young or middle-aged hypertensive patients, but PA among the elderly has recently become more common. As salt sensitivity increases with age, plasma renin activity (PRA) tends to decrease, whereas the aldosterone-to-renin ratio (ARR) tends to increase in the elderly. The aim of this study was to clarify the influence of aging on the diagnosis of PA. We retrospectively evaluated 155 consecutively admitted patients who were not taking antihypertensive medications or calcium channel blockers and a blockers that underwent PRA and plasma aldosterone concentration (PAC) measurements.

Renal denervation therapy for resistant hypertension: a clinical update.

revista-journal-of-human-hypertensionPor: C V S Ram1 y A S Kumar.   Journal of Human Hypertension (2014) 28, 699–704.

Severe hypertension (systolic blood pressure (BP) greater than or equal to160?mm?Hg) resistant to treatment with multiple antihypertensive medications, poses a serious challenge to therapeutic treatment. Catheter-based renal denervation (RDN) is being increasingly proposed and researched as a safe and effective method of treating this condition.

Use of ambulatory blood pressure measurement in the definition of resistant hypertension: a review of the evidence.

Por: Alexandre Persu, Eoin O’Brien y Paolo Verdecchia.  Hypertension Research (2014) 37, 967–972.

Revista Hypertension ResearchResistant hypertension as defined by the European Society of Hypertension and American Heart Association is a blood pressure that remains uncontrolled despite concomitant intake of at least three antihypertensive drugs (one of them preferably being a diuretic) at full doses. This definition is still based on office rather than out-of-office blood pressure measurement. In this review we propose a new, stricter definition of resistant hypertension based on ambulatory blood pressure measurement.

Tacrolimus-induced hypertension and nephrotoxicity in Fawn-Hooded rats are attenuated by dual inhibition of renin–angiotensin system

Tacrolimus-induced hypertension and nephrotoxicity in Fawn-Hooded rats are attenuated by dual inhibition of renin–angiotensin system

Revista Hypertension ResearchPor: Lenka Hošková, Ivan Málek, Josef Kautzner, Eva Honsová, Richard P E van Dokkum, Zuzana Husková, Alžbeta Vojtíšková, Šárka Varcabová, Ludek Cervenka y Libor Kopkan.  Hypertension Research (2014) 37, 724–732.

Chronic immunosuppressive therapy is often complicated by the development of both arterial hypertension and renal dysfunction. The principal aim of this study was to assess the effects of dual inhibition of renin–angiotensin system (RAS) and other antihypertensive treatment on blood pressure and renal function in normotensive and hypertensive Fawn-Hooded (FH) strains during chronic calcineurin inhibitor (CNI) administration.
