Effects of anthocyanins on cardiovascular risk factors and inflammation in pre-hypertensive men: a double-blind randomized placebo-controlled crossover study

High intake of fruits and vegetables is associated with reduced cardiovascular risk. A number of fruits and vegetables are rich in anthocyanins, which constitute a subgroup of the flavonoids. Anthocyanins have demonstrated anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidative properties, and anthocyanin-rich interventions have indicated beneficial effects on blood pressure and other cardiovascular risk factors. We assessed whether a purified anthocyanin supplement improves cardiovascular metabolic risk factors and markers of inflammation and oxidative stress in prehypertensive participants, and whether plasma polyphenols are increased following intake.

Treatment of hypertension in the elderly: data from an international cohort of hypertensives treated by cardiologists

Por: M Thoenes, D Spirk, M Böhm, F Mahfoud, L Thevathasan y P Bramlage.  Journal of Human Hypertension (2013) 27, 131–137.

Hypertension in the elderly is a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease. We aimed to analyze determinants of blood pressure (BP) control across different age groups. Population of a large global survey on hypertension treatment and control including 18 927 patients was analyzed. A logistic regression analysis was conducted to estimate BP control rates and the prevalence of antihypertensive drug usage according to age. Systolic BP control decreased from 29.6% (95% confidence intervals (CI) 26.0;33.5) at 18–40 years to 22.4% (20.8;24.2) at >75 years (P<0.0001), and diastolic BP control increased from 31.6% (27.9;35.6) to 57.3% (55.2;59.3), respectively (P<0.0001).

Microalbuminuria y factores de riesgo cardiovascular asociados en pacientes con hipertensión arterial sistémica. Subanálisis del estudio I-Search

EditorialPor: Lomelí, Catalina; Rosas-Peralta, Martín; Lorenzo, Antonio; Saucedo, Néstor.  Arch Cardiol Mex.2012; 82 :93-104 – vol.82 núm 02.

Se ha encontrado una elevada prevalencia de microalbuminuria en una muestra aleatoria de pacientes hipertensos, seguidos de manera ambulatoria en consultas de médico especialista, indicando que el riesgo cardiovascular elevado es habitual en la práctica clínica. Es necesario realizar no sólo la detección precoz de la hipertensión, sino también ofrecer un tratamiento multifactorial más estricto basado en el bloqueo de receptores de angiotensina y el control de otros factores de riesgo cardiovascular para facilitar la prevención primaria y secundaria.
