[Affective temperaments (depressive, anxious, irritable, hyperthymic and cyclothymic) are stable parts of personality and describe the emotional reactivity for external stimuli. Their relation to psychopathological conditions is obvious, and increasing amount of data is available in cardiovascular disorders. The aim of this study was to evaluate affective temperaments in healthy subjects (Cont), in white-coat hypertensive (WhHT), in non-resistant (non-ResHT) and in resistant hypertensive... tovább »

BAJNOK László

[ The primary (hyper) aldosteronism (PA) is a spectral disease forming a continuum from normotensive to cases that warrant adrenalectomy. PA definition is laden with inherent uncertainties. The main paradigm shift in the two new recommendations described below is that no change in medication is recommended before PA screening, to help broaden the scope of screenings. Both continue to be based on suppressed renin activity, but the serum aldosterone threshold has been lowered to increase... tovább »

[Administering single pill fixed combinations twice a day in the antihypertensive therapy]

LÉGRÁDY Péter

Most current antihypertensive agents have a 24-hour effect according to the prescribing information, but are not able to provide adequate blood pressure control in many patients. Among treated HT patients, a higher proportion of non-dippers occur in those who take all their antihypertensives at the same time in the morning. The recent evidence suggests that better blood pressure lowering results can be... tovább »
