: The issue of a potential danger of antihypertensive drugs related to cancer susceptibility is currently generating a major debate in the scientific community, concerns in the public and emphasized interest from the media. The present article is a thorough review of what is known on the various classes of antihypertensive drugs concerning the risk of developing different neoplasms and about the suggested pathophysiological mechanisms, whenever available. The main limitations of evidence derived...

Abstract Background Few data are available regarding longitudinal changes of cardiac structure and function in end-stage chronic kidney disease (CKD). Aim of the present study is to describe serial echocardiographic findings in a cohort of dialyzed CKD patients. Methods In this retrospective longitudinal study, we included n = 120 dialyzed CKD patients who underwent at least 2 echocardiograms either 1, 2 or 3 years apart. After baseline echocardiogram, n = 112 had a further examination at year 1...

The management of mitral valve regurgitation (MR), a common valve disease, represents a challenge in clinical practice, since the indication for either surgical or percutaneous valve replacement or repair are guided by symptoms and by echocardiographic parameters which are not always feasible. In this complex scenario, the use of natriuretic peptide (NP) levels would serve as an additive diagnostic and prognostic tool. These biomarkers contribute to monitoring the progression of the valve diseas...

Masked hypertension (MHT) is a clinical condition characterized by normal blood pressure (BP) levels during clinical consultation and above normal out-of-office BP values. MHT is associated to an increased risk of developing hypertension-mediated organ damage (HMOD) and major cardiovascular (CV) outcomes, such as myocardial infarction, stroke, and hospitalizations due to CV causes, as well as to metabolic abnormalities and diabetes, thus further promoting the development and progression of ather...

Since December 2019, a new coronavirus, named SARS-CoV-2, has spread globally, affecting >200 000 people worldwide with the so-called COVID-19 disease. The scientific community is actively and constantly working to identify the mechanisms involved in the diffusion of this virus and the pathogenesis of the infection, with its most frequent and severe complication, namely interstitial pneumonia. To date, SARS-CoV-2 is known to enter the host cells via the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 protein. F...

Cardiovascular diseases, in particular hypertension, as well as the cardiovascular treatment with Renin-Angiotensin System inhibitors such as Angiotensin Converting Enzyme (ACE) inhibitors and Angiotensin Receptor Blockers (ARBs), are claimed once again as mechanisms of Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) during the COVID-19 outbreak due to Cov-2 epidemics. In vitro studies are available to support the eventual role of ACE inhibitors and ARBs in both the promotion and antagonism of the dise...

Chronic kidney disease is a worldwide health problem often burdened by severe cardiovascular complications. Hypertension represents one of the most important risk factor in affecting cardiovascular profile of chronic kidney disease patients. Since renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system plays a major role in determining cardiovascular outcome, guidelines recommend the use of renin-angiotensin-aldosteron inhibitors in order to control hypertension.

PURPOSE: To assess changing trends, role of the triad patient-pregnancy-health professionals and health care cost in emergency peripartum hysterectomy (EPH). METHODS: Demographics, indications, perinatal outcomes, perioperative complications in EPH cases performed in a 10-year period were extracted from the local birth registry. Experience of health professionals in the management of the post-partum haemorrhage was valued. Two subgroups (Period I, 2009-2013 vs. Period II, 2014-2018) were recogni...
