Hypertension stage 1 at early 40s in women associated with increased ACS risk during midlife

Literature - June 22, 2021 - Kringeland E, et al. - Eur J Prev Cardiol 2021
Women with hypertension stage 1 (130-139 mmHg) at their early 40s had an increased risk of ACS during midlife, while this association was non-significant in men after adjusting for CV risk factors.

Women with hypertension stage 1 (130-139 mmHg) at their early 40s had an increased risk of ACS during midlife, while this association was non-significant in men after adjusting for CV risk factors.

Larger SBP reduction by renal denervation in resistant hypertension patients on combination pill

News - May 17, 2021

ACC 2021 In patients with resistant hypertension despite on a triple medication combination daily pill, renal denervation resulted in a 4.5 mmHg greater decrease after 2 months than a sham control.

Scientifc Statement on adverse pregnancy outcomes and CVD

Literature - Apr. 21, 2021 - Parikh NI et al. - Circulation. 2021

Adverse pregnancy outcomes (APOs) are associated with future development of CVD. The statement from the American Heart Association gives recommendations for strategies to reduce the long-term CVD risk in women with APOs.

Nearly linear relationship between sodium intake and BP in individuals with and without hypertension

Literature - Mar. 16, 2021 - Filippini T, et al. - Circulation. 2021

Sodium intake was almost linearly associated with SBP and DBP, without a threshold for low or high sodium exposure. The effect of sodium reduction on BP was more pronounced in individuals with hypertension.

CVD risk associated with lower SBP range in women than in men

Literature - Mar. 5, 2021 - Ji H et al. - Circulation. 2021.

This study used data from four community-based cohort studies and investigated the relation between SBP and incident CVD. Increasing CVD risk was observed beginning at lower SBP thresholds in women than in men.

An overview of the global burden of CVD and risk factors from 1990 to 2019

Literature - Jan. 14, 2021 - Roth GA, et al. - J Am Coll Cardiol. 2020

Global CVD burden has increased in almost all regions outside high-income countries. The increase was largely due to population growth and aging. In addition, attribution of risk factors like SBP, BMI, and dietary risk increased worldwide.

Causal mechanism of age-related hypertension endotype identified

Literature - Dec. 8, 2020 - Elbatreek MH, et al. - PLoS Biol 2020

A study of network approaches with clinical and pre-clinical validation showed that NOX5-induced uncoupling of endothelial NO synthase is a causal mechanism of an age-related hypertension endotype.

Moderate and heavy alcohol consumption associated with hypertension

Literature - Sep. 28, 2020 - Mayl JJ et al. - J Am Heart Assoc. 2020

Compared to those who reported no alcohol intake, T2DM patients with moderate (>7 drinks/week) and heavy (>14 drinks/week) alcohol consumption had increased risk of elevated BP, hypertension grade I and hypertension grade 2.

No clinical benefit from suspending ACEi/ARBs in hospitalized patients with COVID-19

BP lowering should be considered irrespective of prior CVD or baseline SBP

3' education - Sep. 1, 2020 - Kazem Rahimi, MD
BP lowering  of 5 mm Hg results in 10% reduction of major CV events and is consistent whether individuals had a previous CVD or not, and is regardless of baseline SBP.

ESC 2020 A study including 48 RCTs demonstrated that lowering of each 5 mmHg SBP resulted in 10% reduction of major CV events, regardless of baseline SBP and CVD status.

Lowering BP reduces risk of major CV events regardless of CVD status and baseline SBP

News - Sep. 1, 2020

ESC 2020 Blood pressure-lowering reduces the risk of major CV events similarly in those with and without CVD and irrespectively of baseline SBP.

Randomized trial on continuing versus suspending ACEi and ARBs in COVID-19

News - Sep. 1, 2020

ESC 2020 Suspension of ACEi/ARB therapy for 30 days did not impact the number of days alive and out of hospital at 30 days compared to continued use of these medications in COVID-19 patients.
