INTRODUCTION: Automated office blood pressure (AOBP) has been recently shown to predict equally well to ambulatory blood pressure (ABP), conventional office blood pressure (OBP) and home blood pressure (HBP), cardiovascular (CV) events among hypertensives. AIM: To compare AOBP recording and ABP monitoring in order to evaluate morning blood pressure (BP) peak in predicting CV events and deaths in hypertensives. METHODS: We assessed 236 initially untreated hypertensives, examined between 2009 and 2013...

INTRODUCTION: A complete assessment of the efficacy and safety of sacubitril/valsartan for hypertension is not available yet. METHODS: Therefore, we performed a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCTs) by incorporating only RCTs including patients aged > 55 years in which the antihypertensive efficacy and safety of sacubitril/valsartan were compared with those of a reference drug (comparator). The mean reductions in systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure in the sitting position (msSBP and msDBP, respectively)were assumed as primary efficacy endpoints...

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Despite the clinical long-term and near-term benefits of lowering cholesterol in, respectively, primary and secondary prevention of ASCVD, cholesterol levels remain under-treated, with many patients not achieving their recommended targets. The present article will review the latest updates on lipid management with emphases on the different classes of cholesterol-lowering agents and their clinical uses.

Andrea Poli, Francesco Visioli
Lowering total and, in particular, LDL cholesterol reduces cardiovascular risk and clinical events. Cholesterol-lowering strategies are manifold. Better diets and positive lifestyle changes are the foremost approach; the use of functional foods, of food supplements/nutraceuticals, and pharmacological treatment must be considered in patients with increasing lipid abnormalities and or increasing cardiovascular risk. Here, we briefly review the most frequently occurring cholesterol-lowering substances found in functional foods or nutraceuticals, i...

Cardiovascular diseases (CVDs) are the main causes of mortality and disability worldwide. Although the initial therapeutic approach to improve the main cardiovascular (CV) risk factors is based on nonpharmacological measures, mainly lifestyle modifications, compliance to recommendations is often poor and inadequate. Therefore, in recent years the use of several nutraceuticals, i.e., nutrients and/or bioactive compounds of plant or microbial origin with potentially healthful effects, has become widespread. However, to date, the scientific data on the possible benefits of the use of nutraceuticals are still inconclusive, due to the absence of adequately controlled intervention studies at least for some of them...

Trisomy of the short arm of chromosome 12 is a rare genetic disease characterised by dysmorphic features, mental retardation, behavioural disorders, seizures predisposition and other congenital abnormalities. Arterial hypertension is not a characteristic feature of 12p trisomy, although congenital heart defects are reported. In this case report, we present a young patient with incomplete trisomy 12p, analysing some characteristics of this disease that have not been previously described in literature.

INTRODUCTION: Cognitive impairment and dementia represent an emerging health problem. Cardiovascular (CV) risk factors contribute to cognitive impairment. AIM: To investigate the effect of vascular calcification on cognitive impairment and dementia, independently of plaque and traditional CV risk factors. METHODS: Four hundred and sixty-nine patients (age of 78.6 ± 6.1 years, 74.4% women) were studied. Traditional CV risk factors levels, cognitive function (MMSE), brain CT scan, and other vascular parameters were measured...

Intracerebral haemorrhage (ICH) is a devastating cerebrovascular disease, which accounts to 15% of all strokes. Among modifiable risk factors for ICH, hypertension is the most frequent. High blood pressure (BP) is detected in more than 75-80% of patients with ICH. Extremely elevated BP has been associated with early hematoma growth, a relatively frequent occurrence and powerful predictor of poor outcome in patients with spontaneous ICH. On the other hand, excessively low BP might cause cerebral hypoperfusion and ultimately lead to poor outcome...

In November 2017, the American College of Cardiology and American Heart Association released new guidelines on hypertension that lowered the blood pressure (BP) definition of stage 1. Impedance cardiography (ICG) has shown that ventricular, vascular, and hemodynamic abnormalities are prevalent in adults over 40 years of age with at least 2 cardiovascular (CV) risk factors. This suggests that all stage 1 hypertension patients with multiple CV risk factors, over 40 years of age, have earlystage CV disease and should be treated...

INTRODUCTION: Reducing low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) to target < 100 mg/dL is considered as a critical therapeutic goal after acute coronary syndrome (ACS). AIM: To evaluate the factors associated with reaching or not this LDL-C target after 6 months of statin therapy. METHODS: Demographic features and other clinically relevant information from a cohort of patients enrolled from April 3, 2016 through March 20, 2017 were analyzed in the current investigation...

Essential hypertension still represents the most common cardiovascular risk factor, which is responsible for the vast majority of global burden of disease, worldwide. Antihypertensive treatment aimed at lowering blood pressure (BP) levels to the recommended therapeutic targets has demonstrated to reduce risk of developing major cardiovascular, cerebrovascular and renal complications. Despite these evidence, overall rates of BP control are dramatically low in most European and Western countries, as well as in the so called developing countries, thus contributing to the increasingly amount of hypertension-related costs and disabilities...

INTRODUCTION: Cardiovascular diseases constitute one of the main causes of disability and premature death. The basic pathology consists of atherosclerosis. Therefore, influencing risk factors, including nutrition, is essential for prevention. AIM: To assess the opinion of Czech citizens, over 40 years old, on the role of nutrition as it relates to risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. METHODS: Data from 1992 participants were acquired using a research questionnaire administered throughout the Czech Republic from 1...

REVIEW
Rita Del Pinto, Claudio Ferri
Hypertension is a risk factor for cardiovascular morbidity and mortality with increasing prevalence with age, whose treatment is associated with benefits over fatal and non-fatal cardiovascular events even later in life. However, there are persistent concerns on the short- and long-term weighted benefits of treating hypertension in the very old, particularly in those with specific clinical features. In fact, a broad range of clinical scenarios can be observed at older ages, spanning from the healthy to the frailest patient, and hypertension clinical trials have traditionally excluded the latter, thus preventing the unconditioned application to these patients of the same recommendations as in younger ages...

INTRODUCTION: Emergency departments (EDs) are critical sites for hypertension (HTN) screening. Home blood pressure (BP) monitoring (HBPM) is used routinely in outpatient settings, yet its utility after the ED visit for those with elevated BP in the ED is unclear. AIM: In this pilot study, we assessed if HBPM could detect HTN in patients with elevated in-ED BP. METHODS: From September 2014 to July 2017, we recruited adult patients at an urban, academic ED with a triage BP ≥ 120/80 mmHg and no history of HTN into this prospective cohort observational study...

INTRODUCTION: Coronary heart disease is a major cause of death worldwide. Although the relationship between vitamin D status and cardiovascular diseases is not clearly understood, vitamin D deficiency could be a potentially modifiable and underestimated risk factor for ischemic heart diseases. This study aims to assess and compare vitamin D status between patient group with chronic stable angina and matched control group. METHODS: A case-control study was conducted on chronic stable angina patients and matched controls attending family medicine/internal medicine clinics at Cairo University Hospitals...
