Acute aerobic exercise results in increases in aortic stiffness and cerebrovascular haemodynamic pulsatility during early recovery in adults with treated hypertension similar to those in counterparts without hypertension, suggests a study.
There appears to be an increased urinary excretion of podocyte-specific proteins coupled with a phenotype of decreased mRNA expression in hypertensive patients with elevated urinary albumin excretion (UAE), suggests a recent study.
A recent study evaluating self-management of hypertension has shown that such an approach is undertaken properly and recorded accurately. Moreover, fidelity with self-management correlates with lower achieved systolic blood pressure (SBP).
Long-term outcomes in patients with Takotsubo syndrome (TTS) are similar to age- and sex-matched patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), a recent study has found. TTS can also be benign or life-threatening depending on the inciting stress factor.
Edoxaban appears to lower the risk of ischaemic stroke, major bleeding and all-cause death compared with warfarin in a real-world Asian population with nonvalvular atrial fibrillation (AF), a Korean study has shown. Additionally, such benefits are consistent across various high-risk subgroups.
Home blood pressure (BP) indices, such as systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP) and mean BP, appear to be predictive of future cardiovascular diseases in patients with essential hypertension, a recent study has shown.
Intravenous vasodilator therapy confers survival benefits and superior diuretic response in patients with acute heart failure (AHF), provided that systolic (SBP) reduction is <25 percent, according to a posthoc analysis.
