Binge drinking (BD) during adolescence is related to hypertension. There are, however, few studies concerning the effects of BD on kidney function and osmotic balance in relation to arterial pressure. The mechanism by which BD affects kidney function is related to oxidation and inflammation. Recently, Se, an essential trace element possessing antioxidant properties, has also been shown to be related to renal Na+ /K+ -ATPase activity. This study examined the protective effects of 0.4 ppm selenite administered to adolescent rats in an intermittent i...

Based on the obesity paradox, people with a normal body mass index (BMI) may have a higher risk of mortality than those with a BMI that falls within the obese range. Despite the availability of other anthropometric measures, obesity is commonly evaluated based on BMI. A body shape index (ABSI) and body roundness index (BRI) have recently been proposed as new anthropometric measures that are calculated with height, weight, and waist circumference. This study investigated the associations between the traditional and new body composition indices and arterial stiffness using the brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV)...

The Na/K ratio may be more strongly related to blood pressure and cardiovascular disease than sodium or potassium. The casual urine Na/K ratio can provide prompt on-site feedback, and with repeated measurements, may provide useful individual estimates of the 24-h ratio. The World Health Organization has published guidelines for sodium and potassium intake, but no generally accepted guideline prevails for the Na/K ratio. We used standardized data on 24 h and casual urinary electrolyte excretion obtained from the INTERSALT Study for 10,065 individuals aged 20-59 years from 32 countries (52 populations)...

Our group previously demonstrated that dronedarone induces regression of left ventricular hypertrophy in spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). We assessed changes in vascular remodeling and oxidative stress following short-term use of this agent. The coronary artery was isolated from 10-month-old male SHRs treated with 100 mg kg-1 dronedarone once daily for 14 days (SHR-D group), and age-matched untreated SHRs were used as hypertensive controls. We analyzed the geometry and composition of the artery and constructed dose-response curves for acetylcholine and serotonin (5-HT)...

Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is substantially prevalent among patients in the end stage of renal disease (ESRD). We considered factors related to peripheral arterial disease in patients undergoing hemodialysis including the important role of monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) serum concentrations. We studied 150 patients in on-line-predilution hemodiafiltration. Dialysis sufficiency was defined by Kt/V for urea. PAD was defined using clinical criteria, ankle-brachial index and Doppler ultrasound in the lower limbs...

Obstructive sleep apnea-hypopnea syndrome (OSAHS) is an independent risk factor for hypertension (HTN). The oral microbiota plays a pathophysiological role in cardiovascular diseases; however, there are few reports directly investigating and identifying the organisms involved in OSAHS-related HTN. Therefore, this study aimed to identify those organisms. We obtained 139 oral samples and determined the microbiome composition using pyrosequencing and bioinformatic analyses of the 16S rRNA. We examined the fasting levels of cytokines and homocysteine in all participants and analyzed the correlations between the oral microbiota and homocysteine levels...

The prognostic value of white-coat hypertension (WCH) remains controversial. We undertook a quantitative literature review to assess the risk of cardiovascular outcomes in untreated participants with WCH compared to that in participants with normotension. We searched databases (PubMed, Cochrane Library and the Ichu-Shi Web Japanese database) for peer-reviewed articles published until December 23, 2017 reporting studies evaluating the risk of cardiovascular outcomes in participants with WCH compared to that in participants with normotension...

As an effective medicine for jaundice in traditional Chinese medicine, Cucumis melo L. has been widely used in China. However, its effect on vascular function is still unclear. In this study, we extracted the compounds of Cucumis melo L., and the major ingredients were identified as cucurbitacins (CuEC, cucurbitacins extracted from Cucumis melo L.), especially cucurbitacin B. We replicated the toxicity in mice by intraperitoneal injection of a high dose of CuEC (2 mg/kg) and demonstrated that the cause of death was CuEC-induced impairment of the endothelial barrier and, thus, increased vascular permeability via decreasing VE-cadherin conjunction...

Self-measured blood pressure (BP) at home, that is, home BP, is a stronger prognosticator than office BP. However, some physicians seem to think that office BP measurement is sufficient to manage hypertension. We aimed to assess whether interventions based on using home BP affect clinical outcomes including BP levels when compared with usual care based on office BP. Using the PubMed and the Cochrane Library databases (until July 2017), we searched randomized controlled trials comparing home BP-based treatment to usual care in adults with essential hypertension aged ≥18 years in an area with an established medical system...

Primary aldosteronism (PA) is the most common cause of secondary hypertension. The aim of this study was to review the clinical outcomes after mineralocorticoid receptor (MR) antagonist treatment versus adrenalectomy treatment in patients with PA. Relevant medical literature from PubMed, the Cochrane Library, and the ICHUSHI database from 1985 to August 2017 was reviewed. Data extraction was performed independently by three authors. The incidence of cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease, the improvement of left ventricular hypertrophy or hypokalemia, the severity of hypertension, the incidence of renal dysfunction, and the reduction in the number of oral antihypertensive agents were set as the clinical outcomes...

Renin-angiotensin system (RAS) inhibitors are often used as a first-line treatment for hypertensive patients with diabetes because of purported benefits, such as reno-protection. However, there is no clear evidence for the superiority of RAS inhibitors to other classes of antihypertensives for clinically important outcomes in this population. We conducted a meta-analysis to assess whether RAS inhibitors are better than other classes of antihypertensives for reducing mortality, and cardiovascular and renal events in hypertensive patients with diabetes...

Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) are considered primary drugs for the secondary prevention of myocardial infarction (MI), and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) are used when ACEIs cannot be tolerated. However, it is unclear whether ACEIs or ARBs are more appropriate first-line drugs in hypertensive patients with MI or heart failure (HF). The present study aimed to compare the effects of ACEIs and those of ARBs in these patients. Sixty randomized controlled trails (RCTs) that compared the effects of ACEIs and ARBs in patients with MI or HF were extracted by searching PubMed/MEDLINE, Cochrane Database, and the Medical Central Journal database according to the PRISMA guidelines...

The target of diastolic blood pressure (DBP) remains controversial in patients with coronary artery disease (CAD). We systematically searched PubMed/Medline and the Cochrane Central database for randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessing the efficacy and safety of reducing DBP in CAD patients from January 1965 to July 2017. Seven placebo-controlled RCTs enrolling 34,814 CAD patients who achieved DBP <80 mmHg were included in the drug-intervention group. The average achieved blood pressures (BPs) were 126...

The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the influence of hypertension on left atrial (LA) function in patients with moderate and severe AS. This cross-sectional study included 121 patients with moderate and severe AS and preserved left ventricular (LV) ejection fraction ( > 50%) and 79 age-matched controls who underwent a comprehensive echocardiographic examination. LA phasic function was determined by both volumetric and strain methods. Our findings showed that the LV ejection fraction was similar between hypertensive and normotensive AS patients...

Pulsatile hemodynamics are associated with brain small perivascular spaces (SPVS). It is unknown whether the stiffness of intermediary arteries connecting the aorta and brain modifies this association. Participants from the Northern Manhattan Study were assessed for SPVS (defined as ≤3 mm T1 voids) and white matter hyperintensity volume (WMH) using MRI. Middle (MCA) and anterior cerebral arterial (ACA) diameters (measured on time-of-flight MRA) and CCA strain (assessed by ultrasound) were used as surrogates of stiffness...

The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between endothelin-1, nitric oxide, insulin resistance, and blood pressure in young subjects with a high prevalence of excess weight and/or elevated blood pressure. In a cohort of 238 children (mean age = 11.1 years), height, weight, waist circumference, and blood pressure were assessed. Body mass index, waist-to-height ratio, and blood pressure percentiles were calculated, and the children were classified as having excess weight and elevated blood pressure according to the International Obesity Task Force and the US blood pressure nomograms specific for gender, age and height, respectively...

Several lipid parameters are closely associated with residual cardiovascular risk. We aimed to confirm that in a range of low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-c) levels (from <70 mg/dl to ≥160 mg/dl), other lipid parameters, such as triglyceride (TG) level, non-high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (non-HDL-c) level, and the total cholesterol (TC)/HDL-c ratio, are still related to arterial stiffness, which is a recognized marker of atherosclerosis. In this cross-sectional study, we measured brachial-ankle pulse wave velocity (baPWV), as well as clinical and biochemical indices in 16,733 Chinese adult volunteers who underwent health check-ups from January 2014 to January 2015...
