Hypertensive Disorders of Pregnancy and Maternal Cardiovascular Disease Risk Factor Development: An Observational Cohort Study. Background: Women with a history of hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) are nearly twice as likely to develop cardiovascular disease (CVD) as those who are normotensive during pregnancy. However, the emergence of CVD risk factors after HDP is less well-understood. Objective: To identify associations between HDP and maternal CVD risk factors and chart (...) the trajectory of risk factor development after pregnancy. Design: Observational cohort study. Setting: United States. Participants: 58 671 parous NHS II (Nurses' Health Study II) participants who did not have CVD or risk factors of interest at baseline. Measurements: Women were followed for self-reported physician diagnosis of chronic hypertension and hypercholesterolemia and confirmed type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) from their first birth through 2013; mean follow-up ranged from 25 to 32 years across

Nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drug use has been shown to increase blood pressure in nonpregnant adults. Because of this, the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists suggests avoiding their use in women with postpartum hypertension; however, evidence to support this recommendation is lacking. Our goal was to test the hypothesis that nonsteroidal antiinflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, adversely affect postpartum blood pressure control in women with preeclampsia with severe features.

69. Hypertension Work Group: 2018 Commentary

Hypertension Work Group: 2018 Commentary ICSI Hypertension Work Group: 2018 Commentary Background In December 2017, the American College of Cardiology/American Heart Association (ACC/AHA), and nine other professional organizations released an updated guideline on hypertension 1 . This guideline reclassified hypertension, with stage 1 hypertension now defined as systolic blood pressure (SBP) 130-139 mm Hg or diastolic blood pressure (DBP) 80-89 mm Hg and stage 2 hypertension defined as SBP = 140 (...) mm Hg or DBP = 90 mm Hg. This is a major change from the 2004 Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee (JNC 7), which defined stage 1 hypertension as SBP 140-159 mm Hg or DBP as 90-99 mm Hg and stage 2 hypertension as SBP = 160 mm Hg or DBP =100 mm Hg 2 . It is estimated that 46% of American adults will be diagnosed with hypertension by the new guideline definitions, up from 32% from the JNC 7 panel guideline 1 . Reception to the new ACC/AHA guideline has been mixed. Differing

Urinary plasmin(ogen) levels correlate with blood pressure (BP) and may contribute to renal Na + retention by activating the epithelial Na (...) + channel (ENaC). In a longitudinal nested-cohort study, we asked whether urinary plasmin(ogen) levels predict subsequent increase in BP, incident hypertension, or mortality in subjects with type I diabetes, who often develop proteinuria. The Pittsburgh Epidemiology of Diabetes Complications (EDC) study followed up type I diabetic subjects for 25 years. Urine specimens from 70 subjects with a spectrum of baseline urinary albumin levels were examined. Outcomes included increased BP after 2 years (≥1 SD
