Article
El efecto de las distintas clases de hipotensores en la incidencia de diabetes mellitus (DM) es controvertido, porque los metaanálisis tradicionales cuentan con la dificultad de la heterogeneidad de los ensayos clínicos (EC), y dada la ausencia de estudios que comparen los inhibidores de la enzima conversiva de la angiotensina (IECA) con los antago...
Article
Objetivo Valorar el efecto de la combinación de un inhibidor de la enzima conversiva de la angiotensina (IECA), trandolapril, asociado a un antagonista del calcio no dihidropiridínico, verapamilo de liberación retardada (TV), frente a un antagonista del receptor de la angiotensina II (ARA-II), losartán, asociado a diurético, hidroclorotiazida (LH),...
Article
We present the case of a 70-year-old patient with histories of arterial hypertension (HTN), electrocardiographic left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), trigeminal neuralgia, and with controlled blood pressure. In the last year, she has undergone several changes in her hypertensive treatment in response to gradual BP elevations. She attends the consult...

... Estos porcentajes son mayores que los recogidos en estudios recientes donde no superan el 58,4 %, 42,3 % y el 35,8 % respectivamente, lo que puede estar condicionado por el nivel educativo de los encuestados, variable no medida en nuestro estudio, por la influencia de la farmacia comunitaria en mejorar el conocimiento de los pacientes y sus patologías o porque no se comprueba si la información es correcta y suficiente. Así, Benítez et al (16) señalan que el 79-82 % conocen que la HTA es una enfermedad crónica, pero 12,4-15,1% no tienen en cuenta el control de HTA. ...
... We calculate the Intraclass Correlation Coefficient (ICC) between the measurements obtained with a goniometer with those gathered using LeapAngles software. Since the ICC enable us to measure the concordance between different methods of measurement for the same phenomenon, this means, to confirm that results obtained with both instruments are equivalent [9], [10]. ...
... 12 A prevalência da DRC em doentes hipertensos não é unânime, com grandes variações em diferentes contextos e em diferentes países. [13][14][15] Tendo em conta esta heterogeneidade e sendo fundamental fazer o diagnóstico da situação em populações específicas, considerou-se pertinente avaliar a prevalência de DRC numa população hipertensa dos cuidados de saúde primários, bem como ve-rificar se existia associação com o controlo da tensão arterial, tempo de evolução da doença, existência concomitante de DM e utilização de fármacos Inibidores do eixo renina-angiotensina (iECA ou ARA). artigosbreves de investigação pela Comissão de Ética para a Saúde da Administração Regional de Saúde (ARS) do Norte. ...
... it-sampling fraction (f). When f is less than 0.35, Scott and Smith's predictor has higher increment in SMSE over TMSE than the Random Permutation Predictor. However, when f is greater than 0.35, the Random Permutation Predictor has higher percent increment in SMSE to TMSE than Scott and Smith's Predictor. Andre et al., 1987. Cavelaars et al., 2004.

... 6 Vara-Gonzalez et al studied the prevalence of CKD in hypertensive patients on treatment at the PHC centers in Spain and reported that 25.7% patients had a reduced GFR. 7 Sharma et al reported a prevalence of eGFR less than 60 mL/min of 7.3-14% from a study conducted in China, Mongolia and Nepal, which is comparable to our findings; they also reported a prevalence of proteinuria in 2.4-10% of the subjects. 8 Singh reported a lower prevalence of proteinuria (2.25%) in India than our findings. ...
