[Cilostazol improves quality of life and lower limb functional capacity in lower extremity arterial disease regardless of age and gender – new results of the SHort-tERm cIlostazol eFFicacy and quality of life (SHERIFF) study]

FARKAS Katalin, KOLOSSVÁRY Endre , JÁRAI Zoltán

[Intermittent claudication has a significant negative impact on the patients’ quality of life. Revascularization procedures and noninvasive medical therapie scan improve walking capacity. Cilostazol has IA recommendation for the treatment of intermittent claudication (IC). The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of three-month cilostazol treatment on the health related quality of life and on the lower limb functional capacity in women (F) and men (M), in patients under 65 years... tovább »

[Covert cause of secondary hypertension for eleven years]

CSITÁRI Gergő László, BÍRÓ Edina, GENCSIOVÁ Kristína, BESIR Viktória, ALFÖLDI Sándor, SIMONYI Gábor

[In our study, we would like to present a secondary hypertension case with more than eleven years of medical history. Adequate diagnosis was evident from the beginning, certified by histological findings in addition to the typical clinical picture. Because of its endocrine relations this case report could be useful not only to hypertonologists, but also to diabetologists and obesitologists. At the end of our article, we have tried to summarize the most important messages for... tovább »

[Chronic stress in the development of essential hypertension. Role of rilmenidine in the treatment of stress induced hypertension]

SIMONYI Gábor

[Hypertension is an independent risk factor of cardiovascular diseases. Several factors contribute to its development, including chronic stress, which may induce hypertension by increasing sympathetic activity. The signs of increasing sympathetic activity can be primarily detected in the initial phase of hypertension, which is characterized by the increase in cardiac output. In addition to the hemodynamic consequences (increase in cardiac output, tachycardia, coronary... tovább »

[The importance of white-coat and masked hypertension: novelties]

ALFÖLDI Sándor

[White-coat hypertension is a heterogenous clinical entity includes patients with lower and higher cardiovascular risk. It has a relative benign prognosis if it is not associated with other cardiovascular risk factors. It can increase, however, significantly the risk of new onset sustained hypertension and diabetes. The risk of cardiovascular events is unequivocally higher than that of normotensive patients, according to recent studies. Therefore, the proper evaluation of cardiovascular... tovább »

[Clinical implication of arterial stiffness in the elderly]

BENCZÚR Béla

[Hypertension prevalence and cardiovascular risk gradually with age. However this aging process seems to take a more rapid course in some individuals, as reflected in the Early Vascular Aging (EVA) syndrome. Age and high blood pressure are the two main determinants of arterial stiffness which is the core of EVA: the impaired elasticity of the media layer of large elastic arteries (mainly the aorta), a process that can be measured by pulse wave velocity. In elderly hyperten­sives, large arteries... tovább »
