The blood–brain barrier (BBB) constitutes the complex anatomic and physiologic interface between the intravascular compartment and the central nervous system, and its integrity is paramount for the maintenance of the very sensitive homeostasis of the central nervous system. Arterial hypertension is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality. The BBB has been shown to be disrupted in essential hypertension. BBB integrity is important for central autonomic control and this may be implicated in the...

Different methods can be used to define healthy vascular ageing (HVA). In this prospective cohort study, we explored three different definitions in order to provide guidance for which to use. 2718 subjects were included from the Cardiovascular (CV) arm of the Malmo Diet Cancer Study (MDCS; median age 71.9 years, 62.2% females). Three different definitions of HVA were used: HVA-1 (<15th percentile of aortic pulse wave velocity (aPWV) distribution from age-quintiles); HVA-2 (<35th percentile of aP...

There is large evidence that treatment of hypertension significantly reduces the risk of morbidity and mortality in the elderly. Although it is generally accepted that the benefit of antihypertensive treatment is largely explained by the reduction in systolic blood pressure, the optimal blood pressure target in elderly patients is still a topic of debate. Unfortunately, the clinical trials which demonstrated the benefit of antihypertensive treatment in old and very old patients with hypertension...

Renin–angiotensin system (RAS) has important roles in cardiovascular disease. Angiotensin II (Ang II) and angiotensin-(1–7) (Ang-(1–7)) are major effector peptides of RAS. However, the roles of Ang II type 2 receptor (AT2R) need to be further explored and the roles of Ang-(1–7) are still not very clear on vascular calcification (VC). Therefore, we hypothesized they have effects on preventing VC in vivo and in vitro. VC model is established by inorganic phosphate (IP) cultured with vascular smoot...

Coronary artery calcium (CAC) is increased by high blood pressure (BP), predicts new-onset hypertension, and is a powerful predictor of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease events in patients with and without hypertension. Unlike other diseases (e.g., hypercholesterolemia), the clinical use of CAC scoring to personalize the treatment of high BP has not received much attention and therefore remains less well defined. Herein, we provide an updated review of studies investigating the relationship...

Hypertension is a major modifiable risk factor for cardiovascular disease. Autoimmune rheumatic diseases confer increased cardiovascular risk, which is at least partially mediated by traditional cardiovascular risk factors. We examined the prevalence, awareness, treatment, and control rates of hypertension in a large cohort of patients with rheumatic diseases. Consecutive patients attending the Rheumatology Οutpatient Clinics were studied. Hypertension was defined by both the 2018 European Socie...

Physical activity affects the vasculature through mechanisms related to nitric oxide bioavailability, oxidative stress, and inflammation; with endothelial function at the centre of this triad. In a South African setting, with the prevalence of hypertension and physical inactivity being alarmingly high, we aimed to investigate relationships of vascular function with markers of oxidative stress, inflammation and nitric oxide synthesis capacity in physically active and inactive groups. Based on the...
Arterial hypertension is particularly prevalent in the elderly and treatment is required according to the literature. Treatment in subjects between 65 and 80 years of age resembles by characteristics and results that obtained in younger population. The treatment of arterial hypertension in the very elderly differs in a relevant percentage of them. It is quite similar in those with a good physical fitness with or without cardiovascular disease. A series of factors as the presence of real sustaine...
