Case Study
This article presents a case study of surgical treatment of severe high blood pressure in an adult. A 24-year-old man was referred for a diagnosis of high blood pressure. The blood pressure was astonishingly low in the inferior limbs and pulses in the femoral arteries were weak. Despite pharmacological treatments in a young adult, a surgical treatment was performed for severe high blood pressure.

    BackgroundCentral systolic blood pressure (SBP) can be estimated by an oscillometric method developed from a pulse volume plethysmography (PVP) device. The present study applied this novel method to a noninvasive blood pressure monitor (NBPM).MethodsWe enrolled 50 patients (37 men, age range...
