Less brain damage with intensive BP-lowering in older hypertensives, but no effect on function

News - Mar. 20, 2019

ACC 2019 The randomized INFINITY trial showed a significant reduction in accrual of subcortical white matter disease in older people receiving more intensive antihypertensive therapy, but mobility and cognitive function were not improved.

Smokers with baseline SBP >144 mmHg may experience harm with intensive BP lowering

Literature - Mar. 12, 2019 - Scarpa J et al. - JAMA Netw Open 2019

An exploratory analysis of SPRINT data using a machine learning method identified a subgroup of smokers with baseline SBP >144 mmHg who had a higher rate of CV events and acute kidney injury with an SBP treatment target of <120 mmHg vs 140 mmHg.

Renal denervation can lower heart rate in unmedicated hypertensive patients

Literature - Mar. 11, 2019 - Böhm M et al., - Eur Heart J. 2019

In the SPYRAL HTN-OFF MED study, RDN lowered HR, particularly in the morning. Patients with HR above the median showed a greater drop in HR and BP than those with lower HR at baseline.

Sex differences in trends, treatment and control of CV risk factors in the US from 2001-2016

Literature - Mar. 5, 2019 - Peters SA, et al. - Circulation 2019

A study with representative US citizens showed similar trends for most CV risk factors between men and women from 2001 to 2016, with the exception of BMI and total cholesterol, and sex differences for control of hypertension, diabetes and dyslipidemia.

Bariatric surgery in obese subjects with hypertension results in improved BP outcomes

Literature - Feb. 19, 2019 - Schiavon CA et al. - Hypertension. 2019

Bariatric surgery in obese subjects with hypertension resulted in reduced need for antihypertensive medication with similar ABPM profile and nondipping status, and reduced BP variability and lower number of patients with resistant hypertension compared to medical therapy.

Increasing prevalence rates of modifiable risk factors in relatively young patients hospitalized for AMI

Literature - Feb. 19, 2019 - Yandrapalli S et al. - JACC 2019
In a retrospective cohort study, major modifiable atherosclerotic risk factors were highly prevalent among adults aged 18-44 years hospitalized for a first AMI. Except for dyslipidemia, prevalence rates of risk factors progressively increased over time.

Risk on dementia not reduced with intensive BP-lowering arm in SPRINT

Literature - Feb. 4, 2019 - SPRINT MIND Investigators - JAMA 2019

In SPRINT MIND, no reduction was seen in probable dementia, after a median of 5 years of follow-up and 3.3 years of intervention, but mild cognitive impairment was reduced in the intensively treated arm.
