Blood pressure reduction and control are associated with reduced risk of stroke and cardiovascular disease. There is evidence that ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) results more accurately reflect the risk of cardiovascular events than do office measurements of blood pressure. New international guidelines recognize the importance of ABPM which has an important and growing role in the diagnosis and in guiding antihypertensive therapy. In 2011 in the United Kingdom, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommended that ABPM be performed on all patients with suspected hypertension to confirm the diagnosis and reduce unnecessary treatment in people who do not have true hypertension. The aim of this observational study is to describe the utility of ABPM generally and specifically in the management of hypertension by Cardiologists in the Algerian context.
The primary aim of the study is to define the prevalence of arterial hypertension and risk factors of its development in an unselected group of Polish men from the region of Warmia and Mazury, considered as one of the most unprivileged in terms of social and employment status in Poland. Polish men life expectancy at birth is 74 years and is lower as polish women life expectancy at birth by 8 years. The difference in Western Europe is 5 years. ProM aims to investigate the prevalence of arterial hypertension as well as to increase the interest in its prevention and treatment in men from the region.
This is a clinical trial to determine whether 30 sessions of heat therapy in the form of hot water immersion is better than 30 sessions of traditional aerobic exercise training on blood pressure reduction in people with elevated or Stage 1 hypertension.
Written surveys of patients with high blood pressure are designed to determine how they would likely decide if, in addition to taking medication, they had another option to treat their hypertension. The alternative treatment option is renal sympathetic denervation using catheter ablation. This new treatment method is not yet used in the standard care. Currently, studies are being conducted in specific centers to demonstrate the efficacy of this treatment. Questionnaires are used to determine the preference of patients for one or the other option of hypertension treatment. So far, there are no findings.
One-center, observational, non-interventional, prospective study of the efficacy of azilsartan medoxomil in patients with arterial hypertension associated with stable ischemic heart disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
There are few studies in the treatment of hypertension employing acupuncture as a blood pressure regulating technique. The Ministry of Health synthesized the inclusion of integrative and complementary practices within the Unique Health System, such as acupuncture. Our objective is to verify the effect of the acupuncture session on hypertensive patients, measured through ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM). In this way two groups of patients will be selected in a randomized clinical trial. In the first group, Chinese traditional acupuncture will be applied and in the second group the acupuncture sham will be applied.
The investigators propose to assess the needs, barriers, and knowledge gaps of hypertension control programs in the national health care systems of the Central America 4 region LMIC (CA-4: Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, and Nicaragua); to conduct a cluster randomized trial to test the effect of a multilevel and multicomponent intervention program leveraging an existing subnational primary healthcare system in Guatemala, on blood pressure (BP) control among hypertensive patients; and to evaluate the adaptability, feasibility, fidelity, and sustainability of implementing the program in the primary health care systems of the CA-4 region. The comprehensive intervention, which includes protocol-based treatment using a standard BP management algorithm, team-based collaborative care, BP audit and feedback, home BP monitoring, and health coaching on antihypertensive medication adherence and lifestyle modification, will last for 18 months. This implementation research study presents high public health impact because it will generate urgently needed data on effective, practical, and sustainable intervention strategies aimed at reducing BP related disease burden in Central America and other low- and middle-income countries.
24-week open clinical trial to assess tolerability and effect on pressure, hemodynamic parameters and arterial rigidity of the combined treatment based on Fimasartan 60 mg and amlodipine besylate 5 mg given once daily in patients with arterial hypertension in stages 2-3
Systemic arterial hypertension (SAH) is characterized by elevated and sustained blood pressure levels, related to several risk factors. Modifying lifestyle to combat risk factors associated with cardiovascular disease is critical, as such factors are related alteration of endothelial vasodilator response leading to progressive loss of its protective function. However, endothelial dysfunction related to hypertension is not only related to the decrease in the bioavailability of endothelium relaxants, but also to the time of presence of hypertension, increased production of vessel contraction factors and oxidative stress related to the disease. In this way, physical training presents as a non-drug strategy capable of directly and indirectly influencing the pathophysiology of hypertension. In this way the objective of the present work will be to evaluate the acute and chronic effect of aerobic exercise and strength on blood pressure, blood markers of vasodilation and vascular endothelial vasoconstriction, as well as the repercussion on flow-mediated dilatation and oxidative stress markers, In middle-aged hypertensive individuals before and after 12 weeks of training. Study hypothesis: The expected results of the research are that the endothelial response of biochemical markers of vasodilation and vasoconstriction will change positively after aerobic and strength training and the responses will be similar when compared between groups. There will be an improvement in the antioxidant capacity in both groups and the magnitude of the hypotensive effect will be greater in the aerobic group when compared to control and strength.
It has been proposed that the modulation of the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, through renal sympathetic denervation, besides reducing blood pressure, would promote an improvement in vascular reactivity and consequent improvement of macro and microcirculation. The present study aimed to investigate the influence of the renal sympathetic denervation on the skin microvascular function of patients presenting with resistant arterial hypertension.
