Hyperkinetic circulation, as it is related to the clinical hypertensive diseases, is defined and its implications interpreted. These pathophysiological considerations have an important bearing in understanding the pressor mechanisms underlying hypertension and the application of therapy. Another very important consideration is the value of elucidating the mechanisms for the hyperdynamic circulation, for with a clearer understanding of these, we shall come closer to an explanation of the pathogenesis of hypertension.

    A 55 year old man with hypertensive cardiovascular disease and uremia was studied. Atrial standstill was confirmed by intracardiac electroeardiography and by inability to stimulate the atria using intraatrial cardiac electrical pacing. Atrial standstill was observed to persist for at least three...

    Background: Echocardiographic evaluation of left ventricular (LV) strain and strain rate (SR) by 2D speckle tracking may be useful tools to assess chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension (CTEPH) severity as well as response to successful pulmonary thromboendarterectomy (PTE). Methods: We...

    Adequate antihypertensive therapy will lower blood pressure to normotensive or near normotensive levels in 80-85% of patients. Long-term treatment results in a marked decrease in strokes and stroke recurrence, heart failure, renal failure, and progression to accelerated hypertension. The effects...

    Although the assessment of cardiovascular risk in individual patients takes into account a range of risk factors, the diagnosis and management of hypertension (high blood pressure) is largely determined by a single numerical value, albeit that often several readings are taken over time. Given...
