Cerebrovascular Consequences of Pseudohyperaldosteronism

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The study of mechanistically defined forms of hypertension may provide insight into the relationship between hypertension and stroke. The author retrospectively studied a cohort of 23 individuals with pseudohyperaldosteronism (PHA), a condition associated with pathologic activation of the distal nephron epithelial sodium channel but low renin and aldosterone levels. During a median follow-up of 11years (range: 1-30), 4 of 23 (17.4%) patients had a cerebrovascular event recorded. Intracranial hemorrhage was not observed in any patient. Cerebrovascular events tended to occur in older patients, minorities, and patients with a later diagnosis of PHA and additional vascular risk factors. In addition to strict blood pressure control, patients with PHA should have early evaluation and treatment of other vascular risk factors to reduce the risk of stroke.
