OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the possible association between duration of sexual cohabitation and the risk of pregnancy-induced hypertension (PIH). STUDY DESIGN: A matched case-control design in which each case of PIH was compared with three controls.…

PURPOSES: To evaluate 2 commonly overlooked sources of error in measuring blood pressure (BP) in the office, improper patient positioning and frequency of terminal digit bias (TDB) using manual and automated (BP) devices. METHODS: BPs recorded by 3…

Detection of renal vascular disease offers the opportunity to cure a patient with hypertension as well as to avert severe renal damage and lifelong dependence on dialysis. The crucial first step is to suspect renovascular lesions. Clues include the…

Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty and renal artery bypass surgery are the most effective means of treating renal vascular disease and the hypertension it causes. Selection of the most appropriate treatment depends on the nature of the underlying…

Home blood pressure monitoring (HBPM) is recommended in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and hypertension (HTN). However, little is known about the use and pattern of HBPM in CKD patients. A cross-sectional study was conducted in an…

We evaluated the ability of the canine in situ left lower lobe (LLL) vasculature to sieve endogenous plasma proteins of various molecular radii (34-124 A) after LLL arterial pressure had been transiently elevated to 23.8 +/- 0.9 (control group, n =…

We tested the possibility that neuropeptide Y (NPY) may contribute to the pulmonary hypertension that occurs after massive sympathetic activation produced by intracisternal veratrine administration in the chloralose-anesthetized dog. In six dogs,…

The rapid development of pulmonary edema that may occur in the rabbit after the intracisternal injection of a mixture of fibrinogen and thrombin has classically been considered to result from a vagally mediated increase in vascular permeability (G.…

The intracisternal administration of veratrine to the chloralose-anesthetized dog produces pulmonary hypertension (PH) and neurogenic pulmonary edema (NPE). To determine whether pulmonary vasoconstriction, mediated by a circulating agent, contributes…

Abdominoplasty is a popular body-contouring procedure. In this study the authors review retrospectively 199 abdominoplasty patients during a 15-year period to identify factors that affect overall outcome. Patients included 190 women and 9 men. The…
