Brain-selective overexpression of angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 attenuates sympathetic nerve activity and enhances baroreflex function in chronic heart failure.
 

Author(s): Liang Xiao, Lie Gao, Eric Lazartigues, Irving H Zucker

Journal: Hypertension. 2011 Dec;58(6):1057-65.

 

Angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) has been suggested to be involved in the central regulation of autonomic function. During chronic heart failure (CHF), elevated central angiotensin II signaling contributes to the sustained increase of sympathetic outflow. This is accompanied ...

Clinical and haemodynamic correlates of heart rate turbulence as a non-invasive index of baroreflex sensitivity in chronic heart failure.
 

Author(s): Maria Teresa La Rovere, Roberto Maestri, Gian Domenico Pinna, Peter Sleight, Oreste Febo

Journal: Clin. Sci.. 2011 Sep;121(6):279-84.

 

HRT (heart rate turbulence), describing the heart rate changes following a premature ventricular contraction, has been regarded as an indirect index of baroreflex function. However, limited data are available on its relationship with invasive assessment by phenylephrine injection ...

Baroreflex activation for the treatment of heart failure.
 

Author(s): Hani N Sabbah

Journal: Curr Cardiol Rep. 2012 Jun;14(3):326-33.

 

Autonomic dysregulation is a feature of heart failure (HF) characterized by sustained increase of sympathetic drive and by withdrawal of parasympathetic activity. Both maladaptations are independent predictors of poor long-term outcome in patients with HF. Considerable evidence exists ...

Baroreflex failure: a neglected type of secondary hypertension.
 

Author(s): H J L M Timmers, W Wieling, J M Karemaker, J W M Lenders

Journal: Neth J Med. 2004 May;62(5):151-5.

 

The arterial baroreflex buffers abrupt transients of blood pressure and prevents pressure from rising or falling excessively. In experimental animals, baroreceptor denervation results in temporary or permanent increases in blood pressure level and variability, depending on the extent ...

Four faces of baroreflex failure: hypertensive crisis, volatile hypertension, orthostatic tachycardia, and malignant vagotonia.
 

Author(s): Terry Ketch, Italo Biaggioni, RoseMarie Robertson, David Robertson

Journal: Circulation. 2002 May;105(21):2518-23.

 

The baroreflex normally serves to buffer blood pressure against excessive rise or fall. Baroreflex failure occurs when afferent baroreceptive nerves or their central connections become impaired. In baroreflex failure, there is loss of buffering ability, and wide excursions of pressure ...
