1. [JNC 8 is released… but this is not the JNC 8! New US guidelines for the management of hypertension].

    PANORAMA DU M�DECIN 43(10 Pt 1):1048 (2014) PMID 25201593

    During year 2013, several recommendations for the management of hypertension were published: recommendations of the French and European Societies of Hypertension and two recommendations from the USA, those from the ACC/AHA/CDC groups and those from the JNC 8. The recommendations of the JNC 8 are...
  2. Total arterial compliance estimated by a novel method and all-cause mortality in the elderly: the PROTEGER study.

    Age 36(3):9661 (2014) PMID 24801452 PMCID PMC4082579

    Aortic stiffness, assessed by carotid-to-femoral pulse wave velocity (PWV), often fails to predict cardiovascular (CV) risk and mortality in the very elderly. This may be due to the non-linear association between PWV and compliance or to blood pressure decrease in the frailest subjects. Total ar...
  3. 0360: Increased stiffness and cell-matrix interactions of abdominal aorta in two experimental non-hypertensive models: long-term chemical sympathectomized and sinoaortic-denervated rats

    Archives of Cardiovascular Diseases Supplements 6:55 (2014)

    Sinoaortic denervated (SAD) and chemically sympathectomized (SNX) rats are characterized by a decrease in arterial distensibility without hypertension and would thus be relevant for analyzing arterial wall stiffening independently of blood pressure level. The fibronectin network, which...
  4. Le JNC 8 est sorti… mais ce n’est pas le JNC 8 ! Nouvelles recommandations américaines pour la prise en charge de l’hypertension artérielle

  5. Blood pressure control with a single-pill combination of indapamide sustained-release and amlodipine in patients with hypertension: the EFFICIENT study.

    PLoS ONE 9(4):e92955 (2014) PMID 24714044 PMCID PMC3979648

    Despite antihypertensive treatment, most hypertensive patients still have high blood pressure (BP), notably high systolic blood pressure (SBP). The EFFICIENT study examines the efficacy and acceptability of a single-pill combination of sustained-release (SR) indapamide, a thiazide-like diuretic,...
  6. Elderly Algerian women lose their sex-advantage in terms of arterial stiffness and cardiovascular profile.

    Journal of Hypertension 31(11):2244 (2013) PMID 23812000

    Several studies have shown lower carotid-femoral pulse wave velocity (cfPWV) levels in women compared to men, a difference that could partially explain the increased longevity in women. However, these studies have been performed in industrial countries while few data are available in emerging po...

    L’année 2013 a vu la publication de plusieurs recommandations pour la prise en charge de l’HTA : des recommandations françaises, européennes, et deux recommandations américaines, celles de l’ACC/AHA/CDC et celles du JNC 8. Les recommandations du JNC 8 ne sont pas, à propremen...
  8. Hypotension orthostatique : marqueur de gravité et adaptation du traitement antihypertenseur

    PANORAMA DU M�DECIN 41(11):1116 (2012)

    Orthostatic Hypotension (OH) is an independent predictor of cardiovascular disease and of all-cause mortality. It is a marker of poor prognosis in older and middle-aged patients. It should be primarily sought, at diagnosis of hypertension, at therapeutic modification, and when suspecte...

    PANORAMA DU M�DECIN 41(6):650 (2012)

    Hypertension is the most prevalent treatable risk factor for stroke. Treatment of hypertension is based on usual blood pressure, which is evaluated by repeated measurement. When only few measurements show high blood pressure, this is considered as a background noise generally...

    Hypertension is the most prevalent treatable risk factor for stroke. Treatment of hypertension is based on usual blood pressure, which is evaluated by repeated measurement. When only few measurements show high blood pressure, this is considered as a background noise generally due to white coat e...
  13. Cardiovascular and renal outcome in recipients of kidney grafts from living donors: role of aortic stiffness.

    Nephrology Dialysis Transplantation 27(5):2095 (2012) PMID 21980156

    Cardiovascular (CV) risk remains high in renal transplant patients despite a clear improvement conferred by transplantation. This risk is attributed mostly to recipient-related risk factors. Donor vascular characteristics, such as arterial stiffness, have been poorly investigated in this regard....

    Journal of Hypertension 27(6):1158 (2009) PMID 19462490

    Dietary sodium and potassium intakes are factors known to influence blood pressure (BP) through different pathways. These mechanisms likely result in differential effects on parameters characterizing BP. The aim of the study was to evaluate relationships between both sodium and potassium intake ...

  20. Can ambulatory blood-pressure monitoring provide reliable indices of arterial stiffness?

    American Journal of Hypertension 20(8):831 (2007) PMID 17679028

    The use of ambulatory recordings of blood pressure (BP) was proposed to estimate arterial stiffness (AS). We compared the relative value of the ambulatory AS index (AASI), and of the slope of pulse pressure (PP) according to mean BP (MBP) obtained from 24-h ambulatory BP monitoring, to the monit...
