Oral K+-binding agent enables use of spironolactone in patients with resistant hypertension and CKD

Literature - Sep. 19, 2019 - Agarwal R et al., - The Lancet 2019

In the AMBER trial, taking concomitant patiromer enabled more persistent use of spironolactone in patients with resistant hypertension and chronic kidney disease, by reducing the risk of hyperkalemia.

RAAS inhibition in patients with kidney disease: Balancing the benefits and risks

10' education - July 12, 2019 - ERA-EDTA 2019 - Prof. Patrick Rossignol, MD
Although RAAS inhibition reduces proteinuria and hypertension in cardio-renal patients, it is associated with increased risk of hyperkalemia. Prof. Rossignol shares data on the addition of patiromer in patients using spironolactone for the mangement of CKD with resistant hypertension.

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.

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.
