  • Hypertension Induced Morphological and Physiological Changes in Cells of
           the Arterial Wall
    • Authors: Martinez-Quinones P; McCarthy C, Watts S, et al.
      Pages: 1067 - 1078
      Abstract: AbstractMorphological and physiological changes in the vasculature have been described in the evolution and maintenance of hypertension. Hypertension-induced vascular dysfunction may present itself as a contributing, or consequential factor, to vascular remodeling caused by chronically elevated systemic arterial blood pressure. Changes in all vessel layers, from the endothelium to the perivascular adipose tissue (PVAT), have been described. This mini-review focuses on the current knowledge of the structure and function of the vessel layers, specifically muscular arteries: intima, media, adventitia, PVAT, and the cell types harbored within each vessel layer. The contributions of each cell type to vessel homeostasis and pathophysiological development of hypertension will be highlighted.

  • Circulating MicroRNAs and Bioactive Lipids in Pre-Eclampsia and Its
           Cardiovascular Sequelae
    • Authors: Das U.
      Pages: 1079 - 1086
      Abstract: Pre-eclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-specific disease. It is characterized by hypertension and proteinuria (more than 300 mg/24 hours, and renal dysfunction includes creatinine of more than 90 μmol/l or glomeruloendotheliosis). PE affects between 2% and 8% of pregnancies worldwide. PE is an important cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality.1 Other features of PE include hematological dysfunction (hemolysis, disseminated intravascular coagulation, thrombocytopenia), hepatic dysfunction (raised transaminases with or without right hypochondrium pain), and neurological dysfunction (hyperreflexia, visual disturbances, and headache). Though the exact cause of PE is not known, it has been attributed to abnormal formation of placental blood vessels that leads to poor uterine and placental perfusion. This may result in oxidative stress, hypoxic condition, and release of antiangiogenic factors (some of which include soluble endoglin and the soluble vascular endothelial growth receptor-1 (VEGF-1; soluble Fms-like tyrosine kinase-1)). These antiangiogenic factors induce endothelial dysfunction by inhibiting the action of proangiogenic factors: placental growth factor and VEGF.2–4 A role for gases nitric oxide (NO), carbon monoxide (CO), and hydrogen sulfide (H2S), and essential fatty acids and their anti-inflammatory metabolites such as lipoxins, resolvins, protectins, maresins, and prostacyclin (PGI2) has also been suggested in the pathogenesis of PE.4 Furthermore, alterations in cytokines, catechol-O-methyltransferase (which leads to an absence or decrease of 2-methoxyoestradiol) activity, autoantibodies, termed AT1-AAs, which bind and activate the angiotensin II receptor type 1 a (AT1 receptor), mitochondrial function; heme oxygenase expression; innate immune system; and extracellular vesicles have been described in PE. These abnormalities may accentuate the proinflammatory and procoagulatory states of pregnancy and have been proposed to play a role in PE (reviewed in reference 4). It has been shown that compared with controls, patients with PE also show significantly higher total plasma cholesterol (5.1 ± 0.7 vs. 4.6 ± 0.4 mmol/l, P = 0.001), triglyceride (1.9 ± 0.2 vs. 1.7 ± 0.2 mmol/l, P = 0.01), uric acid (10.4 ± 2.7 vs. 4.4 ± 0.8 mol/l, P = 0.005), blood glucose (6.3 ± 2.3 vs. 5.0 ± 1.0 mg/dl, P = 0.01), and increase in insulin resistance suggesting that markers of metabolic syndrome also exist in them (some, if not all) implying that both conditions are linked.5,6 The proposal that so many factors participate in PE highlights its complexity. The fact that all the abnormalities associated with PE resolve after the delivery of the placenta implies that a better understanding of its pathogenesis may help us to develop more accurate methods of predicting and management of essential hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and cardiovascular disease (CVD). The prevalence of CVD and metabolic syndrome in later life in those with PE is higher compared with those who had normal pregnancy. For example, the CHAMPS (Cardiovascular Health After Maternal Placental Syndromes) study demonstrated a 12-fold increased risk of CVD with a history of pre-eclampsia and metabolic syndrome compared with women with neither.7 Several studies have demonstrated that patients with PE are at greater risk of developing CVD in later life. It was observed that CVD (defined as hospital admission or revascularization for coronary artery, cerebrovascular, or peripheral artery disease at least 90 days after the delivery discharge date) was twice as common in women who had PE. An increased risk of CV events such as myocardial infarction, cardiac shock, malignant dysrhythmia, cerebrovascular accident, or other conditions that need percutaneous cardiac intervention, coronary artery bypass, an implantable cardiac defibrillator, or thrombolysis was reported within 3 years of PE during a mean follow-up period of 7.8 years to 15 to 19 years.8 Thus, those who had PE have a 2- to 4-fold higher risk of premature CVD and CV mortality later in life.9 In addition, those who had PE are at increased risk of future development of chronic hypertension, increased arterial stiffness, exaggerated insulin resistance, peripheral vascular disease, and stroke.8 In view of these adverse CV events in those with PE, Dayan et al.10 searched for markers that could help in the prediction of development of premature acute coronary syndrome in those who had PE previously. Their work showed that microRNAs (miRNAs) linked to angiogenesis, inflammation, and cholesterol metabolism are significantly decreased, which may explain the increased CV risk seen in those who had PE previously.

  • Relation of Serum Potassium to Cardiovascular Events in Patients With
           Heart Failure and Preserved Ejection Fraction: “Mind the Gap”
    • Authors: Pitt B; Rossignol P.
      Pages: 1087 - 1089
      Abstract: There has been considerable attention focused on the relationship between serum or plasma potassium (sK, pK) and cardiovascular (CV) events over the past several years.1 In individuals without known CV disease, especially those <65 years of age, it appears that a relatively wide range of sK values may be tolerated without a significant increase in CV risk.2 However, in patients with CV disease such as chronic kidney disease, heart failure (HF), diabetes mellitus or even hypertension alone the optimal range of sK appears to be narrower. In some studies 3.5–5.0 meq/l or 4.0–5.0 meq/l while in others the range may be even narrower and or include an upper limit of 5.5 or even 6.0 meq/l meq/l. Although there have been several studies evaluating the relationship between sK or pK in patients with HF and a reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (HFrEF), there is less information regarding this relationship in patients with HF and preserved left ventricular ejection fraction (HFpEF).

  • Resting Heart Rate “Kinetics”: Paradox or Means to Understand the Link
           Between Hypertension and Heart Failure'
    • Authors: Maeder M; Brenner R.

      Abstract: High heart rate (HR) is associated with poor outcome in the general population1,2 and patients with cardiovascular diseases including coronary artery disease3 and heart failure (HF).4 In patients with HF with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF), pharmacological HR reduction is beneficial, and HR is now regarded as a therapeutic target.5 However, HR is under the control of the autonomic nervous system and has a substantial diurnal variability depending not only on physical activity but also mental stress. This may be important because in contrast to the measurement of blood pressure, HR assessment is not well standardized. In practice, HR is typically measured in 2 ways: first, by the electrocardiogram (ECG), i.e., in the supine position and second, during measurement of blood pressure in the doctor’s office, i.e., in the sitting position. It is likely that for a given patient, HR measured in the supine and sitting position will differ since HR depends on posture. There is a physiological baroreflex-mediated rise in HR after getting up from the supine to the upright position. This HR rise may be blunted in the presence of diseases affecting the autonomic nervous system such as diabetes. This observation represents the basis for the use of HR as a test for the diagnosis of diabetic neuropathy. In this setting, the following parameters are of interest: (i) the decrease in HR within the first seconds after the baroreceptor-mediated rapid rise following getting up and (ii) the net difference between HR in the supine position and the stable HR plateau approximately 30 seconds following getting up.6 A similar test is not broadly established in patients with cardiovascular disease although autonomic dysfunction is common in these patients, particularly in those with HF. Only recently, our research group has shown that in patients with chronic HF, a small rise in HR after getting up from the supine to the upright position (ΔHR = HR in upright position − HR in supine position; cut-off 3 bpm) was an independent predictor of death or HF hospitalization.7

  • Circulating MicroRNAs Implicate Multiple Atherogenic Abnormalities in the
           Long-Term Cardiovascular Sequelae of Preeclampsia
    • Authors: Dayan N; Schlosser K, Stewart D, et al.
      Pages: 1093 - 1097
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDWomen who have had preeclampsia (PE) are at increased risk for premature cardiovascular disease (CVD). The underlying pathophysiology of this risk remains unclear, but potentially involves subclinical vascular damage or dysfunction. Alterations in the levels of circulating microRNAs may be implicated, as they are known to play pervasive roles in vascular biology. We investigated whether levels of circulating microRNAs are altered between women with premature acute coronary syndrome (ACS), with and without a history of PE.METHODSWomen with premature ACS (age ≤ 55 years) were categorized based on a prior history of PE or normotensive pregnancy. Relative plasma levels of 372 microRNAs were initially assessed by polymerase chain reaction array in a subset of subjects (n = 12–13/group) matched for age, chronic hypertension, dyslipidemia, and smoking status. Candidate microRNAs were then validated in a larger cohort of ACS patients (n = 176).RESULTSMicroRNAs previously linked to angiogenesis (miR-126-3p), inflammation (miR-146a-5p), and cholesterol metabolism (miR-122-5p) were significantly decreased in women with prior PE compared to women with prior normotensive pregnancy (P = 0.002, 0.017, and 0.009, respectively), even after adjustment for chronic hypertension.CONCLUSIONSCirculating levels of miR-126-3p, -146a-5p, and -122-5p were significantly decreased in women with premature ACS who reported prior PE compared to those with prior normotensive pregnancy. These data provide novel insight into potential pathways that may contribute to the increased risk of CVD following PE.

  • Serum Potassium and Cardiovascular Events in Heart Failure With Preserved
           Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction Patients
    • Authors: Nishihara T; Tokitsu T, Sueta D, et al.
      Pages: 1098 - 1105
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDAlthough serum potassium (sK) levels are closely associated with the prognosis of chronic heart failure patients, the clinical significance of sK levels in cardiovascular outcomes of heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF) patients is not fully understood.METHODSThis study was a retrospective, single-center, observational study. We enrolled 506 consecutive HFpEF patients admitted to Kumamoto University Hospital and divided them into four groups according to the quartiles of the sK levels at discharge (Q1: sK < 4.1 mEq/l, Q2: 4.1 ≤ sK < 4.4 mEq/l, Q3: 4.4 ≤ sK < 4.7 mEq/l, and Q4: sK ≥ 4.7 mEq/l).RESULTSNo significant differences were observed in the use of all drugs (loop diuretics, mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists, renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system inhibitors, calcium channel blockers, β-blockers, and statins) among the four groups. Hemoglobin, the estimated glomerular filtration rate, and pulse wave velocity levels were lower, and the serum sodium levels were higher in the Q4 group compared with those in the Q2 group. Kaplan–Meier analysis revealed significantly higher probabilities of both cardiovascular and HF-related events in the Q1, Q3, and Q4 groups than those in the Q2 group. Multivariate Cox proportional hazard analysis revealed that the Q1, Q3, and Q4 groups had significantly and independently higher probabilities of cardiovascular events compared with those in the Q2 group, indicating a J-shaped association between sK levels and cardiovascular events.CONCLUSIONSsK levels at discharge could provide important prognostic information in regard to HFpEF. Further evaluation in a larger number of patients might be needed.Clinical Trials RegistrationUMIN-CTR (http://www.umin.ac.jp/ctr/).IdentifierUMIN000029600.Public Access InformationOpt-out materials are available at the website: http://www.kumadai-junnai.com/home/wp-content/uploads/houkatsu.pdf.

  • Increased Resting Heart Rate on Electrocardiogram Relative to In-office
           Pulse Rate Indicates Cardiac Overload: The J-HOP Study
    • Authors: Oba Y; Hoshide S, Kabutoya T, et al.
      Pages: 1106 - 1112
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDHeart rate (HR) assessed by electrocardiogram (ECG-HR) and pulse rate (PR) measured in a physician’s office (office-PR) are taken with subjects in different body positions—i.e., supine vs. sitting. Although analysis of HR differences according to body position could provide new practical insights, there have been few studies on the subject. We herein investigated whether the difference between office-PR and ECG-HR (delta HR) was associated with brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) levels and left ventricular mass (LVM).METHODSAmong the 4,310 patients with 1 or more cardiovascular risk factors recruited for the Japan Morning Surge-Home Blood Pressure study, we excluded those with atrial fibrillation or a prescribed β-blocker. We analyzed the 2,972 patients who had ECG-HR, office-PR, and BNP data and 1,061 patients with echocardiography data.RESULTSIn the complete patient series, office-PR was significantly higher than ECG-HR (72.1 ± 10.3 vs. 66.6 ± 11.9 bpm, P < 0.001). When we divided patients into quintiles based on the delta HR, the BNP level and LVM index (LVMI) decreased across categories after adjustment for traditional cardiovascular risk factors (each P ≤ 0.001). In a multiple linear regression analysis, the delta HR was independently and significantly associated with both the log-transformed BNP level (β = −0.179, P < 0.001) and LVMI (β = −0.113, P = 0.001) adjusted for covariates.CONCLUSIONA decreased delta HR was positively associated with the BNP level and LVMI. Without the requirement of a special technique, this evaluation might indicate potential cardiac overload and provide a clinical sign related to heart failure.

  • Visit-to-Visit Variability of Blood Pressure Is Associated With
           Hospitalization and Mortality in an Unselected Adult Population
    • Authors: Basson M; Klug M, Hostetter J, et al.
      Pages: 1113 - 1119
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDBlood pressure variability (BPV) has been associated with poor health outcomes in high-risk patients, but its association with more general populations is poorly understood.METHODSWe analyzed outcomes from 240,622 otherwise unselected patients who had 10 or more outpatient blood pressure readings recorded over a 3-year period and were aged from 20 to 100 years.RESULTSWhether calculated as SD, average change, or greatest change and systolic or diastolic blood pressure, we found that higher outpatient BPV was associated with subsequent hospitalization and mortality. Systolic pressure average change exceeding 10–12 mm Hg or diastolic exceeding 8 mm Hg significantly increased risk of hospitalization and death (odds ratios [ORs] from 2.0 to 4.5). Variability in the highest decile increased risks even more dramatically, with propensity-matched ORs from 4.4 to 42. A systolic change exceeding 35 mm Hg increased the relative risk of death 4.5-fold. Similarly, a diastolic change greater than 23–24 mm Hg almost tripled the risks of hospitalization and death. Neither stratification for hypertension nor propensity matching for risk factors within the database affected these associations.CONCLUSIONSSystolic and diastolic variabilities were each associated with subsequent adverse outcomes. Physicians should pay special attention to patients with swings in blood pressure between clinic visits. Electronic medical records should flag such variability.

           Toon Health Study
    • Authors: Saito I; Takata Y, Maruyama K, et al.
      Pages: 1120 - 1126
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDAlthough blood pressure (BP) is regulated by the autonomic nervous system, it is not fully understood how autonomic activity affects BP at home in the general population.METHODSSubjects were enrolled from 2009 to 2012 and included 1,888 men and women aged 30–79 years. We measured casual BP in the morning during health checkups and asked participants to monitor BP at home twice in the morning and evening for 1 week. The mean of the two measurements of mean arterial pressure (MAP) was calculated. Five-minute recordings of the pulse wave from a fingertip sensor were used to determine the following indices of heart rate variability (HRV): standard deviation of normal-to-normal RR intervals (SDNN), root mean square of successive differences in RR intervals (RMSSD), high frequency (HF) power, low frequency (LF) power, and LF/HF.RESULTSSex- and age-adjusted means of casual MAP, and morning and evening MAP at home were significantly different among quartiles of SDNN, RMSSD, and HF. When further adjusted for smoking, alcohol drinking, medication for hypertension, diabetes, sleeping hours, snoring, and mental health status, the associations were somewhat attenuated. Inverse relationships were found between the means of morning home MAP, and RMSSD (P = 0.02) and HF (P = 0.051) after adjustment for confounders. The association between MAP and RMSSD, or MAP and HF was evident in individuals <65 years old.CONCLUSIONLow HF and RMSSD, which reflect impaired parasympathetic nervous system activity, were associated with increased home MAP in the morning rather than in the evening.

  • Sodium Intake Is associated With Endothelial Damage Biomarkers and
           Metabolic Dysregulation
    • Authors: Campino C; Baudrand R, Valdivia C, et al.
      Pages: 1127 - 1132
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDMounting evidence has associated high sodium (HS) intake with hypertension, cardiovascular disease, and stroke. We investigated whether HS intake modulates the parameters of endothelial damage, inflammation, and oxidative stress.METHODSWe used a cross-sectional study design including 223 Chilean subjects (6.9–65.0 years old). We measured aldosterone, renin activity, cortisol, cortisone, adiponectin, leptin, hsCRP, interleukin 6 (IL-6), tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), plasminogen activator inhibitor type 1 (PAI-1), metalloproteinase (MMP)-9 and MMP-2 activity, and malondialdehyde. Sodium and creatinine were measured in 24-hour urine samples. The subjects were divided by sodium intake, high sodium (HS): ≥150 mEq/day, n = 118, and adequate sodium (AS): <150 mEq/day, n = 105.RESULTSWe observed a positive correlation between urinary sodium excretion and blood pressure (r = 0.1669, P = 0.0124 for systolic and r = 0.2416, P = 0.0003 for diastolic), glycemia (r = 0.2660, P < 0.0001), and triglycerides (r = 0.1604, P = 0.0175) and a highly significant correlation between sodium excretion and PAI-1 (r = 0.2701, P < 0.0001). An inverse correlation was observed between urinary sodium and HDL-cholesterol (r = −0.2093, P = 0.0018) and adiponectin (r = −0.2679, P < 0.0001). In a linear regression model, urinary sodium excretion remained significantly associated with PAI-1 values even after adjusting for age, gender, and BMI. The HS group had higher blood pressure, glycemia, HOMA-IR, atherogenic index of plasma, and PAI-1 values than the group with AS intake.CONCLUSIONSHS intake is associated with endothelial damage (high PAI-1) and metabolic dysregulation. On the other hand, inflammation and oxidative stress parameters are not modified by sodium intake.

  • Maternal Weight, Snoring, and Hypertension: Potential Pathways of
           Associations
    • Authors: Dunietz G; Shedden K, Lisabeth L, et al.
      Pages: 1133 - 1138
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDHypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) are linked to excessive maternal weight and frequent snoring. However, pathways between maternal excessive weight, pregnancy-onset snoring, and HDP are only partially estimated. We examined and quantified the total and direct associations between excessive maternal weight and incident HDP and their indirect pathway through pregnancy-onset snoring.METHODSThird trimester pregnant women enrolled from prenatal clinics of a large tertiary medical center. Sleep data were collected through a questionnaire. Demographic and pregnancy information and first trimester maternal weight were abstracted from medical charts. After exclusion of women with prepregnancy hypertension and/or chronic snoring, causal mediation analysis was used to estimate the total and direct association between maternal weight and incident HDP and their indirect association through pregnancy-onset snoring. The proportion of the mediated association through pregnancy-onset snoring from the total association of maternal weight and HDP was also quantified.RESULTSAfter excluding those with chronic hypertension and/or snoring, the final sample included 1,333 pregnant women. In adjusted analysis, excessive maternal weight was directly associated with incident HDP; odds ratio (OR) = 1.87 (95% confidence interval (CI) 1.30, 2.70). Pregnancy-onset snoring significantly mediated the association between maternal weight and incident HDP; OR = 1.08 (95% CI 1.01, 1.17). The mediated pathway accounted for 15% of the total association between maternal weight and incident HDP.CONCLUSIONSPregnancy-onset snoring mediates the association between maternal weight and incident HDP in women without prepregnancy snoring or hypertension. These findings demonstrate the relative contributions of excessive maternal weight and pregnancy-onset snoring to incident HDP.

  • Pitavastatin Upregulates Nitric Oxide Synthases in the Kidney of
           Spontaneously Hypertensive Rats and Wistar–Kyoto Rats
    • Authors: Hu G; Ito O, Rong R, et al.
      Pages: 1139 - 1146
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDClinical trials show potent renoprotective effects of pitavastatin (PTV), although the precise mechanism for these renoprotective effects is not fully clarified. The aim of this study was to examine the antihypertensive and renoprotective effects of PTV, focusing on the nitric oxide (NO) system.METHODSMale, 6-week-old, spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR) and Wistar–Kyoto rats (WKY) were randomized to receive vehicle or PTV (2 mg/kg bodyweight) for 8 weeks. Blood pressure and urinary albumin excretion were measured every 2 weeks. After 8 weeks, plasma biochemical parameters and renal histology were examined. NO synthase isoform (neuronal, nNOS; inducible, iNOS; and endothelial, eNOS) expression and eNOS phosphorylation were examined by western blotting.RESULTSPTV attenuated hypertension and albuminuria development in SHR. PTV decreased glomerular desmin expression and medullary interstitial fibrosis in SHR. PTV tended to increase plasma NO in both strains but significantly increased urinary NO excretion only in WKY. PTV significantly increased nNOS and eNOS expression, enhanced eNOS phosphorylation at serine1177, and inhibited eNOS phosphorylation at threonine495 in the kidney of both strains.CONCLUSIONSPTV treatment led to increased renal NOS expression and upregulated eNOS activity in both SHR and WKY. The antihypertensive and renoprotective effects of PTV may be related to upregulation of the NO system.

  • Effects of Lifestyle Modifications on Elevated Blood Pressure and Excess
           Weight in a Population of Italian Children and Adolescents
    • Authors: Genovesi S; Orlando A, Rebora P, et al.
      Pages: 1147 - 1155
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDChildren’s excess weight is a common problem due to low-quality diet and poor physical activity and is a risk factor associated with hypertension. Aim of this study was to assess the effect of a nonpharmacological multidisciplinary intervention on blood pressure (BP) and body weight in a population of children with excess weight and/or elevated BP.METHODSChildren consecutively referred to a Prevention of Cardiovascular Risk Clinic by the primary care pediatrician from 2009 to 2015 were assessed at baseline and followed up over time.RESULTSOut of 273 children (median age 11.4 years, 55% male), 61% were excess weight only, 7% had elevated BP only, and 32% showed both conditions. The probability of reaching the clinical target (normal weight and BP values) at 1 year of follow-up was 19% (confidence interval [CI]: 14%; 24%) and increased up to 38% (CI: 28%; 47%) at 3 years. At 1 year of follow-up, in the overall population both body mass index (BMI) and systolic BP z-scores decreased significantly from 1.77 to 1.47 and from 0.99 to 0.52, respectively (P < 0.0001). BP was significantly reduced in both children with elevated BP only (reduction = 0.91, P = 0.0157) and subjects with excess weight and elevated BP (reduction = 0.89, P < 0.0001). Variables significantly related with systolic BP z-score at 1 year of follow-up were baseline systolic BP z-score and BMI z-score reduction during follow-up (P < 0.001 and P = 0.0003, respectively).CONCLUSIONOur data demonstrate the efficacy of lifestyles modification on weight and BP in children, both when elevated BP and excess weight were present as distinct clinical problems and in the case of their association.

  • Cost-Effectiveness of Renal Denervation Therapy for Treatment-Resistant
           Hypertension: A Best Case Scenario
    • Authors: Chowdhury E; Reid C, Zomer E, et al.
      Pages: 1156 - 1163
      Abstract: AbstractBACKGROUNDRenal denervation (RDN) is effective at reducing blood pressure (BP) among patients with treatment-resistant hypertension (TRH). However, recent findings regarding the effectiveness of RDN for BP reduction compared with standard treatment of care (SoC) has initiated a rigorous debate about its role in TRH management. In this study, we sought to determine the thresholds for cardiovascular risk and costs of RDN which would make RDN cost-effective.METHODSA Markov model was constructed to simulate cardiovascular events over a lifetime among TRH subjects aged 60 years at baseline, and without prior cardiovascular disease. The effect on lowering BP was based on results observed in clinical trials of RDN undertaken to date, and the expected subsequent change to cardiovascular risk was drawn from a published meta-regression. Cost and utility data were drawn from published sources. Incremental cost-effectiveness ratios (ICER) in terms of Australian dollars (AUD) per life year and per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) gained were estimated to assess RDN cost-effectiveness relative to SoC from the Australian health care perspective, assuming a willingness-to-pay threshold of AUD 50,000.RESULTSOver a lifetime horizon, the model predicted that at the current estimated costs of RDN (AUD 9531/€6573, 1€ = 1.45 AUD), it would be cost-effective only if it was targeted to patients whose 10-year predicted cardiovascular risk was at least 13.2% initially. The ICERs (discounted) were AUD 49,519 per life year gained and AUD 47,130 per QALY gained.CONCLUSIONSAt current costs and based on currently observed effects on BP reduction, RDN would be cost-effective among patients with TRH.
