28th European Meeting on
Hypertension and Cardiovascular Protection

JAHA Conference Reads

To coincide with the 28th European Meeting on Hypertension and Cardiovascular Protection, taking place on June 8-11 in Barcelona, the JAHA Editors have selected 5 recently published hypertension-related articles. The JAHA Conference Reads collections can also be accessed via the journal's website. Please share this email with your colleagues.


Pregnancy?Related Risk Factors Are Associated With a Significant Burden of Treated Hypertension Within 10 Years of Delivery: Findings From a Population?Based Norwegian Cohort
Grace M. Egeland, Svetlana Skurtveit, Anne Cathrine Staff, Geir Egil Eide, Anne?Kjersti Daltveit, Kari Klungsøyr, Lill Trogstad, Per M. Magnus, Anne Lise Brantsæter, Margaretha Haugen

A significant number of pregnancies are accompanied by hypertensive disorders (preeclampsia, eclampsia, gestational hypertension) and/or diabetes (pregestational and gestational). In this article, Egeland et al. show that these disorders predict the development of hypertension requiring pharmacological therapy during the following 10 years. Thus, targeted follow-up of women with these pregnancy-related disorders might help to prevent future cardiovascular complications.

Impact of a History of Hypertension in Pregnancy on Later Diagnosis of Atrial Fibrillation
Dawn C. Scantlebury, Andrea G. Kattah, Tracey L. Weissgerber, Sanket Agarwal, Michelle M. Mielke, Amy L. Weaver, Lisa E. Vaughan, Stanislav Henkin, Katherine Zimmerman, Virginia M. Miller, Wendy M. White, Sharonne N. Hayes, Vesna D. Garovic

A significant number of pregnancies are accompanied by hypertensive disorders, which predict the development of future hypertension. In this article, Scantlebury et al. show that women who develop atrial fibrillation are more likely to have had a hypertensive disorder of pregnancy than those who don’t. Thus, targeted follow-up of women with these pregnancy-related disorders and cardiovascular risk factor management might help to prevent future atrial fibrillation.

Attended and Unattended Automated Office Blood Pressure Measurements Have Better Agreement With Ambulatory Monitoring Than Conventional Office Readings
Emmanuel A. Andreadis, Charalampia V. Geladari, Epameinondas T. Angelopoulos, Florentia S. Savva, Anna I. Georgantoni, Vasilios Papademetriou

Automated blood pressure measurement correlates better with ambulatory blood pressure measurements than standard measurements. In this article, Andreadis et al. show that the presence or absence of medical staff do not affect automated blood pressure readings. Thus, automated blood pressure measurement appears preferable for use in clinical settings.

Twenty?Four?Hour Central Pulse Pressure for Cardiovascular Events Prediction in a Low?Cardiovascular?Risk Population: Results From the Bordeaux Cohort
Antoine Cremer, Romain Boulestreau, Prune Gaillard, Marion Lainé, Georgios Papaioannou, Philippe Gosse

Central blood pressure measurement is more predictive of future cardiovascular events than peripheral blood pressure measurement in high risk individuals. In this article, Cremer et al. show that central pulse pressure measured for 24 hours is more predictive than peripheral pulse pressure of future cardiovascular events over an ~10 year period. Thus, these data support the monitoring of central blood pressure in hypertensive patients with low cardiovascular risk.

Association of “Elevated Blood Pressure” and “Stage 1 Hypertension” With Cardiovascular Mortality Among an Asian Population
Mohammad Talaei, Naeimeh Hosseini, Angela S. Koh, Jian?Min Yuan, Woon?Puay Koh

The new American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association high blood pressure (BP) guidelines in the United States lowered the definition of normal BP to <120/80. In this article, Talaei et al. show that in a Chinese cohort in Singapore, mild BP elevations (<140/90) are only associated with cardiovascular disease in individuals <65 years of age without a history of cardiovascular disease. Thus, further studies will be required to determine the benefit of treating patients with an elevated BP or stage I hypertension.
