[Unattended automated office blood pressure measurement versus classic office automated blood pressure measurement in a hypertension outpatient clinic]

LÉGRÁDY Péter, FEJES Imola, CZOMBOS András, ÁBRAHÁM György

[Accurate measurement of blood pressure is a fundamental prerequisite requirement for an appropriate management of arterial hypertension. In order to eliminate the well-known limitations of classic office blood pressure measurements, the so-called unattended automatic office blood pressure measurement method can be a solution. In 52 patients arriving for regular followup into one of the Hypertension Outpatinet Clinic of the Nephrology-Hypertension Center of the University of Szeged 3-3 blood... tovább »

[Hypertension, cognitive function and dementia – Significance of antihypertensive therapy]

GAJDÁN Nikolett, ÁBRAHÁM György

[The significance of hypertension as one of the major cardiovascular risk factor is unquestionable. By achieving target blood pressure values differentiated by age and comorbidities, the risk of cardiovascular events can be significantly reduced. However, it is essential to the quality of life the patient spends the extra years of life thus gained. This is a really complex issue affecting many co-disciplines, but one of the most important of these is the mental health, maintaining cognitive... tovább »

[Subtype diagnosis, treatment, complications and outcomes of primary aldosteronism and future direction of research: a position statement and consensus of the Working Group on Endocrine Hypertension of the European Society of Hypertension – excerpts]

KOVÁTS Viktória, ALFÖLDI Sándor

[Primary aldosteronism is a frequent cause of secondary hypertension requiring a specific pharmacological treatment with mineralocorticoid receptor antagonist or with unilateral adrenalectomy. These treatments have shown to reduce the excess of cardiovascular risk characteristically associated with this disease. In this consensus, we discussed the procedures for the diagnosis of primary aldosteronism, we address the strategies for the differential diagnosis of primary aldosteronism subtypes and... tovább »

[Effect of beta-blockers with or without vasodilating properties on central blood pressure]

BENCZÚR Béla

[Beta-blockers are more and more excluded as frist-line option in recent hypertension guidelines – they are mainly used in the case of compelling indication. However beta-blockers are not a homogeneous drug-class as several differences exist between them regarding their effect on metabolism or vasoconstriction/vasodilation. The clinical implication of central blood pressure has recently arisen into the focus of interest in the light of the fact that different antihypertensives exert different... tovább »
