چکیده

Background: Microalbuminuria (MA) is associated with increased cardiovascular risk in hypertensive patients, but not many studies have specifically examined the effects of MA-lowering on regression of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) among pediatric patients with hypertension. Methods: Fifty-five patients with essential hypertension, 11 to 19 years old were prospectively studied. All patients received concomitant therapy of hydrochlorothiazide and angiotensin-converting-enzyme inhibitor. Five patients also required angiotensin-receptor blocker to achieve the blood pressure goal. Baseline and 12-month follow-up measures of left ventricular mass index (LVMI) determined by echocardiography and urine microalbumin/creatinine ratio (MA/Cr) were collected. MA was defined as MA/Cr>30. LVH was defined as LVMI>38.6 g/m2. The primary end points were 25% or more reductions in MA and the LVMI.Results: Weight (r=0.83), body surface area (r=0.85), body mass index (BMI) (r=0.86), systolic blood pressure (SBP) (r=0.57), diastolic blood pressure (DBP) (r=0.49), mean arterial pressure (r=0.53) and MA (r=0.87) were all univariate correlates of LVMI. In a multiple regression analysis, MA, BMI and SBP were significant correlates of LVMI. MA alone explained 76% of the variance of LVMI, whereas BMI and SBP explained only 1.6% and 0.4% of the variance, respectively. MA was the most significant correlate of follow-up LVMI after BMI and SBP were included in the overall multiple regression models. Conclusion: MA is a strong predictor of LVH in hypertensive children and adolescents. MA-lowering halts the progression of LVH or induces its regression.

Background: Persistence of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH) in renal transplant recipients is associated with unfavorable outcomes. Calcineurin-inhibitor (CNI) nephrotoxicity is a major cause of morbidity and mortality after kidney transplantation. In this study we compared sirolimus (SRL) with calcineurin-inhibitor as primary immunosuppressants for the attenuation of left ventricular hypertr...

Introduction: Pulmonary arterial hypertension in children has consequences such as right ventricular failure and even death. Recently, the use of phosphodiesterase 5 inhibitors has been taken into account in the treatment of pulmonary hypertension, among which tadalafil is more acceptable by parents and patients due to its single dose per day compared to sildenafil which should be taken 4 times...
