OBJECTIVE Recent evidence in postmenopausal women suggested lack of association between serum levels of retinol-binding protein 4 (RBP4) and subclinical atherosclerosis; however, associations with arterial stiffness in this population remain unexplored. We evaluated the association among RBP4 and cardiovascular risk factors, including homocysteine, a marker involved in retinoic acid synthesis, and indices of arterial stiffness, in a sample of apparently healthy postmenopausal women. METHODS This...

BACKGROUND Within-visit variability of repeated sequential readings of blood pressure (BP) is an important phenomenon that may affect precision of BP measurement and thus decision making concerning BP-related risk and hypertension management. However, limited data exist concerning predictive ability of within-visit BP variability for clinical outcomes. Therefore, we aimed to investigate the association between the variability of three repeated office BP measurements and the risk of all-cause mor...

Optimal antithrombotic treatment of older patients is usually impeded by several prevailing misconceptions. The aim of our study was to assess the type, dosage and predictors of antithrombotic therapy in older patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (NVAF). PAVE-AF was a prospective, cross-sectional study, including NVAF patients ≥ 80 years from 30 participating centers. Demographic data, comorbidities and treatment patterns were documented in a single visit. Patients treated with non-vit...

AIM: To characterize different patterns of variability of three repeated within-visit blood pressure (BP) readings and to determine the prevalence of specific variation trends in systolic (SBP), diastolic (DBP) blood pressure and pulse pressure (PP). METHODS: Data from 53 737 subjects from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were analyzed. In each subject, three consecutive BP measurements were performed with a minimum time-interval of at least 30 s. We propose three patterns of...

Anti-Mullerian hormone (AMH), which is secreted by granulosa cells of late preantral and small antral follicles, is a marker of ovarian reserve. The association of ovarian reserve with subclinical atherosclerosis in women of reproductive age is currently unknown. We primary investigated whether AMH levels are associated with markers of subclinical atherosclerosis in healthy, normally menstruating women. In this cross-sectional study, vascular structure and function were assessed by measurement o...

Highlights •Aging is the most important risk factor for the development of cardiovascular disease and dementia. Yet, the overlapping underlying mechanisms are not completely appreciated. •Aβ, an aging-induced peptide and the hallmark of the amyloid hypothesis of Alzheimer’s disease, constitutes an independent cardiovascular risk factor. •We review the determinants and the role of Aβ in cardiovascular system and disease. •We call for research gathering evidence on how to treat this newly recogniz...

Abstract Hypertension is a multifactorial disorder with serious complications and unknown etiology. Among potential contributors, immune dysregulation has been also proposed. The study population included 61 consecutive hypertensive patients and 55 healthy individuals of similar age and sex distribution. All study participants underwent a thorough evaluation for subclinical atherosclerosis and a full immunological profile including quantification of immunoglobulins (IgG, IgM, IgA) and lymphocyte...
