  • Sleep Disorders, Including Sleep Apnea and Hypertension
    • Authors: Van Ryswyk E; Mukherjee S, Chai-Coetzer C, et al.
      Pages: 857 - 864
      Abstract: There is mounting evidence for an association between sleep disorders and hypertension. In obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), there are plausible biological reasons for the development of hypertension, and treatment of OSA results in modest (2–3 mm Hg), adherence-dependent decreases in blood pressure, with larger effects evident in those with resistant hypertension. However, prospective, population-based cohort studies have not yet convincingly demonstrated a link between OSA and incident hypertension, and adequately powered controlled trials of CPAP for the prevention or treatment or hypertension are lacking. While associations have been identified between short sleep duration, insomnia, restless legs syndrome (RLS), shift work, and hypertension, the causative role of these conditions/circumstances is not proven, and further well-designed pathophysiological and/or interventional studies are needed. Particular emphasis should be placed on defining subgroups of hypertensive OSA patients that stand to benefit most from OSA treatment and in understanding the link between sleep apnea and hypertensive disorders of pregnancy. Well-controlled intervention studies are needed in populations with short sleep duration, insomnia, shift work sleep disorder, and RLS to confirm their putative links with hypertension.

  • MRI and Neuropsychological Correlates in African Americans With
           Hypertension and Left Ventricular Hypertrophy
    • Authors: Waldron-Perrine B; Kisser J, Brody A, et al.
      Pages: 865 - 868
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDAfrican Americans (AAs) are at high risk for hypertension (HTN) and poor blood pressure (BP) control. Persistently elevated BP contributes to cardiovascular morbidity. White matter hyperintensities (WMHs) are a definable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) marker of cerebrovascular injury linked to impairments in higher level thinking (i.e., executive functions), memory formation, and speed of perceptual-motor processing.METHODSThis subinvestigation evaluated neuropsychological functioning in association with WMH on brain MRIs in 23 otherwise-healthy hypertensive AAs participating in an NIH-funded study of the effects of vitamin D on BP and cardiac remodeling in AA patients 30–74 years of age with HTN and left ventricular hypertrophy. Neuropsychological assessment included psychomotor processing speed [(Symbol Digit Modality Test (SDMT) and Trail Making Test], executive functioning (Controlled Oral Word Association Test and Trail Making Test Part B), memory (Rey Auditory Verbal Learning Test), and fine motor functioning (Finger Tapping).RESULTSSignificant correlations (P < 0.05) were found between volume of periventricular lesions and trails A (r = 0.51) and dominant hand finger tapping speed (r = −0.69) and between subcortical lesion volume and trails A (r = 0.60), both dominant (r = −0.62) and nondominant hand finger tapping speed (r = −0.76) and oral SDMT (r = −0.60); higher lesion volumes correlated to worse neuropsychological performance.CONCLUSIONSPsychomotor tests including the Trail Making Test and finger tapping speed are sensitive indicators of subclinical deficits in mental processing speed and could serve as early markers of deep subcortical cerebrovascular injury in otherwise-healthy individuals with uncontrolled chronic HTN.

  • Carotid Intima-Media Thickness and Silent Brain Infarctions in a Biracial
           Cohort: The Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) Study
    • Authors: Caughey M; Qiao Y, Windham B, et al.
      Pages: 869 - 875
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDBoth hypertensive and atherosclerotic processes contribute to common carotid artery intima-media thickness (CCA-IMT). Elevated CCA-IMT may be indicative of subclinical cerebrovascular disease; however, its role in the absence of concomitant carotid artery plaque is uncertain, and few studies have examined associations in Black populations.MATERIALS AND METHODSAt cohort visit 3 (1993–1995) a subset of stroke-free participants (641 Blacks and 702 Whites, mean age 63) from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study was imaged by brain MRI and carotid ultrasound. A CCA-IMT >0.9 mm was considered elevated. Asymptomatic brain lesions ≥3 mm were considered silent brain infarctions (SBI). Subcortical SBI measuring 3 to <20 mm were considered lacunes. Associations between elevated CCA-IMT and SBI were analyzed with Poisson regression.RESULTSElevated CCA-IMT was identified in 168 participants (16% of Blacks, 10% of Whites), and SBI were observed in 156 (15% of Blacks, 8% of Whites). Elevated CCA-IMT was strongly related to anterior circulation SBI, posterior circulation SBI, and lacunes. After adjustments, elevated CCA-IMT remained associated with greater number of lacunes in Blacks ([prevalence ratio, PR] = 1.60; 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.02–2.51), but not Whites (PR = 0.85; 95% CI: 0.35–2.04); P value for interaction = 0.12. Among Black participants without concomitant carotid plaque, elevated CCA-IMT was associated with twice the number of lacunes (PR = 2.00; 95% CI: 1.05–3.82).CONCLUSIONSIn older Black adults, elevated CCA-IMT is independently associated with lipohyalinosis of the cerebral small vessels, irrespective of concomitant carotid plaque and vascular risk factors.

  • The Influence of Sodium and Potassium Intake and Insulin Resistance on
           Blood Pressure in Normotensive Individuals Is More Evident in Women
    • Authors: Murao S; Takata Y, Yasuda M, et al.
      Pages: 876 - 885
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDConsidering sex differences, salt sensitivity, and insulin resistance (IR), the effect of sodium restriction and increased potassium intake on blood pressure remains unclear in normotensive Asian individuals, compared to that in hypertensive patients.METHODSTo assess the influence of sodium and potassium intake in normotensive individuals, we evaluated the estimated 24-hour urinary sodium and potassium excretion rate in 3,392 drug-naïve normotensive Japanese individuals (average age: 48.4 years) and analyzed its relation to blood pressure using multivariate regression analysis.RESULTSMultivariate regression analysis revealed that a 10-mmol/day increment in urinary sodium excretion related to an elevation in systolic blood pressure of 0.16 mm Hg in men and 0.37 mm Hg in women, after adjusting for known risk factors to salt sensitivity, including age, body mass index, serum creatinine, homeostasis model assessment of IR, and urinary potassium excretion. For urinary potassium excretion, a 10-mmol/day increment was associated with a decrease in systolic blood pressure, −0.54 mm Hg in men and −1.49 mm Hg in women, respectively. Furthermore, involvement of IR on blood pressure was observed only in women.CONCLUSIONSIn drug-naïve normotensive individuals, the effects of a lower-salt and higher-potassium diet, and IR on blood pressure, were more evident in women. These results suggest that to prevent the new onset of hypertension and its complications, the balances of a sodium restriction and an increased potassium intake are important even in normotensive individuals, independent of known risk factors for salt sensitivity, especially in women.

  • Factors Associated With Hypertension Control in US Adults Using 2017
           ACC/AHA Guidelines: National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey
    • Authors: Ostchega Y; Zhang G, Hughes J, et al.
      Pages: 886 - 894
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDFactors and trends associated with hypertension control (BP < 130/80 mm Hg) and mean blood pressure (BP) among hypertensive adults (BP ≥1 30/80 mm Hg or medicated for hypertension).METHODData on 22,911 hypertensive US adults from the 1999–2016 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.RESULTSFor men, hypertension control prevalence increased from 8.6% in 1999–2000 to 16.2% in 2003–2004 (P < 0.001), and continued the increasing trend afterwards to 23.2% in 2011–2012 (P < 0.001) and then plateaued. For women, hypertension control prevalence increased from 1999–2000 to 2009–2010 (10.8–26.3%, P < 0.001) and then plateaued. For men with hypertension, systolic BP decreased from 1999–2000 to 2011–2012 (135.7–132.8 mm Hg, P < 0.001) and then increased to 135.3 mm Hg in 2015–2016 (P < 0.001). For women with hypertension, systolic BP decreased from 1999–2000 to 2009–2010 (139.7–131.9 mm Hg; P < 0.001) and then increased to 134.4 mm Hg in 2015–2016 (P = 0.003). Diastolic BP decreased from 1999–2000 to 2015–2016 (men: 79.1–75.5 mm Hg and women: 76.4–73.7 mm Hg, P < 0.001 for both). In 2011–2016, hypertension control was 22.0% for men and 25.2% for women. The adjusted prevalence ratio (PR) of hypertension control were lower for non-Hispanic black men and women (PR = 0.72, 95% confidence interval (CI) = 0.61–0.86; PR = 0.83, 95% CI = 0.70–0.99, respectively; non-Hispanic white (NHW) as reference), Hispanic and non-Hispanic Asian men (PR = 0.70, 95% CI = 0.54–0.92; PR = 0.59, 95% CI = 0.39–0.86; respectively; NHW as reference).CONCLUSIONHypertension control significantly increased from 1999–2000 to 2011–2012 (men) and 2009–2010 (women) and then plateaued. About a quarter of US adults with hypertension were controlled in 2011–2016.

  • Prognostic Value of Electrocardiographic Left Ventricular Hypertrophy on
           Cardiovascular Risk in a Non-Hypertensive Community-Based Population
    • Authors: Tanaka K; Tanaka F, Onoda T, et al.
      Pages: 895 - 901
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDThe appearance of left ventricular hypertrophy on 12-lead electrocardiography (ECG-LVH) has been clarified to be associated with the risk of incidence of cardiovascular events (CVEs) in hypertensive individuals and the general population, but not enough in non-hypertensive individuals.METHODSA total of 4,927 non-hypertensive individuals ≥40 years of age who were free of CVE in the general population were followed for the incidence of CVE. ECG-LVH was defined according to criteria of the Sokolow-Lyon (SL) voltage, Cornell voltage (CV), or Cornell voltage product (CP).RESULTSDuring the average 9.8 ± 2.0 years of follow-up, 267 individuals (5.4%) had their first CVE. The hazard ratio (HR) for the incidence of CVE after full adjustment by potential confounders significantly increased in the individuals with ECG-LVH by any criteria of the SL voltage, CV, and CP (HR = 1.77, P < 0.001) compared to those with no ECG-LVH. This association was also significant in individuals without any of obesity, dyslipidemia, and diabetes mellitus or those with systolic blood pressure (BP) <120 mm Hg and diastolic BP <80 mm Hg. Furthermore, ECG-LVH by each criteria provided the reclassification improvement for the CVE risk prediction model by the Framingham 10-year risk score (the net reclassification improvement = 0.17–0.22, each P value < 0.010).CONCLUSIONSIn the absence of hypertension, ECG-LVH parameters are associated with the increased risk of developed CVEs independent of the established risk factors and provide the additional prognostic value in an assessment of the CVE risk using the traditional risk factors.

  • Renal Protective Effects of N-Acetyl-Seryl-Aspartyl-Lysyl-Proline
           (Ac-SDKP) in Obese Rats on a High-Salt Diet
    • Authors: Maheshwari M; Romero C, Monu S, et al.
      Pages: 902 - 909
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDObesity is a public health problem, associated with salt sensitive hypertension, kidney inflammation, and fibrosis. N-acetyl-seryl-aspartyl-lysyl-proline (Ac-SDKP) is a tetra peptide with anti-inflammatory and anti-fibrotic properties. However, its effect on preventing kidney damage in obesity is unknown. We hypothesized that Zucker obese (ZO) rats on a high-salt (HS) diet develop renal damage, inflammation, fibrosis, and this is prevented with Ac-SDKP treatment.METHODSZucker lean (ZL) and ZO rats (8 weeks old) were treated with Ac-SDKP (1.6 mg/kg/day) while maintained on either a normal-salt (NS; 0.4%) or HS (4%) diet for 8 weeks. Systolic blood pressure (SBP), albuminuria, renal inflammation, and fibrosis were evaluated.RESULTSHS diet increased macrophage infiltration in the kidneys of both ZL and ZO rats but was significantly higher in ZO rats receiving the HS diet (ZL + NS, 13.9 ± 1.3 vs. ZL + HS, 19.14 ± 1.5 and ZO + NS, 25.5 ± 1.4 vs. ZO + HS, 87.8 ± 10.8 cells/mm2; P < 0.05). Ac-SDKP prevented macrophage infiltration in ZO rats (ZO + HS + Ac-SDKP, 32.18 ± 2.4 cells/mm2; P < 0.05). Similarly, glomerulosclerosis, cortical, and medullary interstitial fibrosis were increased in ZO rats fed the HS diet, and Ac-SDKP attenuated these alterations (P < 0.05). SBP was increased in ZO rats fed the HS diet (ZO + NS, 121.3 ± 8.9 vs. ZO + HS, 164 ± 6.9 mm Hg; P < 0.05), and it was significantly decreased with Ac-SDKP treatment (ZO + HS + Ac-SDKP, 144.05 ± 14.1 mm Hg; P = 0.004). Albuminuria was higher in ZO rats than in ZL rats; however, neither HS nor Ac-SDKP treatment affected it.CONCLUSIONSAc-SDKP treatment in ZO rats fed a HS diet prevented renal damage by reducing inflammation, fibrosis, and SBP.

  • Serum Cortisol and Cortisone as Potential Biomarkers of Partial
           11β-Hydroxysteroid Dehydrogenase Type 2 Deficiency
    • Authors: Carvajal C; Tapia-Castillo A, Valdivia C, et al.
      Pages: 910 - 918
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDPathogenic variations in HSD11B2 gene triggers the apparent mineralocorticoid excess syndrome (AME). There is scarce information regarding the phenotypes of subjects carrying heterozygous pathogenic variants in HSD11B2 gene. We investigated if serum cortisol/cortisone (F/E) ratio and cortisone are useful for identifying partial 11βHSD2 deficiency in those heterozygous subjects.METHODSWe studied two patients diagnosed with AME and their families carrying either D223N or R213C mutation. We also evaluated 32 healthy control subjects (13 children and 19 adults) to obtain normal references ranges for all measured variables. Case 1: A boy carrying D223N mutation in HSD11B2 gene and Case 2: A girl carrying R213C mutation. We assessed serum F/E ratio and cortisone by HPLC-MS/MS, aldosterone, plasma-renin-activity(PRA), electrolytes, and HSD11B2 genetic analyses.RESULTSThe normal values (median [interquartile range]) in children for serum F/E and cortisone (µg/dl) were 2.56 [2.21–3.69] and 2.54 [2.35–2.88], and in adults were 4.42 [3.70–4.90] and 2.23 [1.92–2.57], respectively. Case 1 showed a very high serum F/E 28.8 and low cortisone 0.46 µg/dl. His mother and sister were normotensives and heterozygous for D223N mutation with high F/E (13.2 and 6.0, respectively) and low cortisone (2.0 and 2.2, respectively). Case 2 showed a very high serum F/E 175 and suppressed cortisone 0.11 µg/dl. Her parents and sister were heterozygous for the R213C mutation with normal phenotype, but high F/E and low cortisone. Heterozygous subjects showed normal aldosterone, PRA, but lower fractional excretion of sodium and urinary Na/K ratio than controls.CONCLUSIONSerum F/E ratio and cortisone allow to identify partial 11βHSD2 deficiencies, as occurs in heterozygous subjects, who would be susceptible to develop arterial hypertension.

  • Patient Barriers and Facilitators to Ambulatory and Home Blood Pressure
           Monitoring: A Qualitative Study
    • Authors: Carter E; Moise N, Alcántara C, et al.
      Pages: 919 - 927
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDGuidelines recommend that patients with newly elevated office blood pressure undergo ambulatory blood pressure monitoring (ABPM) or home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) to rule-out white coat hypertension before being diagnosed with hypertension. We explored patients’ perspectives of the barriers and facilitators to undergoing ABPM or HBPM.METHODSFocus groups were conducted with twenty English- and Spanish-speaking individuals from underserved communities in New York City. Two researchers analyzed transcripts using a conventional content analysis to identify barriers and facilitators to participation in ABPM and HBPM.RESULTSParticipants described favorable attitudes toward testing including readily understanding white coat hypertension, agreeing with the rationale for out-of-office testing, and believing that testing would benefit patients. Regarding ABPM, participants expressed concerns over the representativeness of the day the test was performed and the intrusiveness of the frequent readings. Regarding HBPM, participants expressed concerns over the validity of the monitoring method and the reliability of home blood pressure devices. For both tests, participants noted that out-of-pocket costs may deter patient participation and felt that patients would require detailed information about the test itself before deciding to participate. Participants overwhelmingly believed that out-of-office testing benefits outweighed testing barriers, were confident that they could successfully complete either testing if recommended by their provider, and described the rationale for their testing preference.CONCLUSIONSParticipants identified dominant barriers and facilitators to ABPM and HBPM testing, articulated testing preferences, and believed that they could successfully complete out-of-office testing if recommended by their provider.

  • Structure and Function of Systemic Arteries: Reflections on the Arterial
    • Authors: O’Rourke M; Adji A, Safar M.
      Pages: 934 - 940
      Abstract: “Structure and Function of Arteries”—is a topic of great importance to those who deal with arterial hypertension, since it links the source of flow, the left ventricle of the heart (whose output is pulsatile) to the peripheral tissues (whose flow is near continuous). The arterial tree acts passively as a conduit and cushion, and the interaction of heart, arterial tree, and organs is conventionally gauged on the basis of blood pressure measured by cuff in a conveniently located place (the brachial artery). For any precision and perspective to be gained, measurements of brachial systolic and diastolic pressure need be supplemented by other information. When such information is gained, one can understand how beautifully the arterial tree is tuned to the beat of the heart in animals of different size and shape and in humans at age 30 through the first third of a 3 billion beat lifetime. After age 30, the beats themselves progressively destroy the human arteries and their tuning to the heart, with emergence of clinical syndromes. In this review, the subject is tackled quantitatively on the basis of published numerical, physical, physiological, and pathophysiological basis, with principal focus on the beat of the heart, the pulse of the arteries, and their interaction.

  • Microbiota–Host Crosstalk: A Bridge Between Cardiovascular Risk Factors,
           Diet, and Cardiovascular Disease
    • Authors: Amar J.
      Pages: 941 - 944
      Abstract: Cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death and is also a major cause of disability worldwide. Indeed, even in well-treated patients for hypertension or dyslipidemia, there is still a high cardiovascular risk called residual risk. It is of utmost importance to identify the pathway leading from risk factors to cardiovascular disease to further improve stroke and myocardial infarction prevention. In this review, we presented some of experimental and epidemiological evidences suggesting that microbiota–host crosstalk is involved in this pathway and bridges the gap between cardiovascular risk factors, diet, and cardiovascular residual risk. We considered the 3 participants in this dialogue: the gut microbiota, the intestinal barrier, and bacterial translocation. We analyzed their relations with cardiovascular risk factors and cardiovascular diseases. Also, we presented some of therapeutic strategies aiming to control microbiota to further prevent cardiovascular disease and the take home messages that can be drawn for clinical practice.

  • Apheresis to Mitigate Atherosclerotic Vascular Disease
    • Authors: Sachais B; Shaz B.
      Pages: 945 - 949
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDTherapeutic apheresis is a term used to describe a group of treatments where blood components are separated in real time, and one component is removed, exchanged, and/or treated to remove pathogenic substances from the circulation. Plasma exchange, which removed all plasma components, and lipid apheresis which selectively removes lipoproteins from circulation, have both been used to treat atherosclerotic vascular diseases.METHODSTo review the literature regarding the application of therapeutic apheresis for atherosclerotic vascular diseases.RESULTSPrimarily lipid apheresis is used to treat atherosclerotic vascular diseases, particularly familial hypercholesterolemia, lipoprotein (a) hyperlipoproteinemia and peripheral vascular diseases. Lipid apheresis can be used as first line or second line treatment with a strong evidenced-based recommendation. Its use has decreased atherosclerotic events.CONCLUSIONLipid apheresis is an important therapy for the treatment of familial hypercholesterolemia, lipoprotein (a) hyperlipoproteinemia and peripheral vascular diseases. Lipid apheresis does more than remove low-density lipoproteins and other lipoproteins but also decreases inflammatory markers and improves blood flow.

  • Interest of Combined Blood Pressure Measurements in Very Old Frail
           Subjects: The PARTAGE Study
    • Authors: Mourad J; Agnoletti D, Labat C, et al.
      Pages: 950 - 956
      Abstract: BACKGROUNDSeveral clinical studies have shown that blood pressure (BP) measurements in very old frail individuals are of limited interest due to the fact that several age-related alterations and geriatric syndromes may modify BP. We studied in persons over 80-year old living in nursing homes the combined effects of 3 BP patterns on total mortality and major cardiovascular (CV) events: (i) low pulse pressure amplification (L-PPA) between carotid and brachial artery, (ii) systolic BP (SBP) <130 mm Hg (L-SBP), under >1 antihypertensive drugs, and (iii) changes in SBP between supine and upright position of >20 mm Hg in both directions (hypotension/hypertension, orthostatic SBP [O-SBP]).METHODSThis analysis was performed in subjects of the PARTAGE study presenting all these 3 measurements (n = 883). The combined effects of L-PPA, L-SBP, and O-SBP were studied during the 2 years followed-up period.RESULTSAfter adjusting for age, sex, and history of CV events, all 3 BP patterns were independent determinants of major CV events (L-PPA, (P = 0.023); L-SBP, (P = 0.050); O-SBP, (P = 0.015)), whereas L-PPA (P = 0.012) and L-SBP (P = 0.006) were also independent determinants of total mortality. Compared with the subjects without any BP pattern, the presence of 2 or 3 BP patterns was associated with an increase in total mortality and major CV events greater than 2 and 2.5 times, respectively.CONCLUSIONSIn very old frail subjects, there is a particular interest for using different BP measurement approaches, than in younger populations, in order to evaluate the risks related to the BP levels.CLINICAL TRIALS REGISTRATIONTrial Number: NCT00901355 (Clinical
