RESUMO

Os três estudos que tiveram importante influência na prática clínica de quem trabalha com hipertensão arterial foram os estudos SIMPLICITY HTN-3, PATHWAY 2 e SPRINT. O estudo SIMPLICITY HTN-3 pôs a dúvida um procedimento que já estava sendo utilizado na prática clínica, qual seja, denervação do nervo simpático renal através de ablação por ondas de radiofrequência. Foi o primeiro estudos com grupo controle que não mostrou diferença entre os desfechos específicos de controle da pressão arterial em pacientes com hipertensão resistente. Portanto, o estudo SIMPLICITY HTN 3 modificou a prática clínica no sentido de que todas as diretrizes de hipertensão são unânimes em afirmar que tal procedimento atualmente deva ser reservado para laboratórios específicos de investigação clínica do método e não deve ser empregado como opção estabelecida de tratamento. O estudo PATHWAY 2 consolida o uso do bloqueador de receptor de mineralocorticoides (espironolactona) como o quarto medicamento no fluxograma de tratamento da hipertensão arterial resistente. Os resultados foram tão impactantes que a diretriz europeia de hipertensão arterial mudou substancialmente a orientação da sequência farmacológica do tratamento. Por fim, o estudo SPRINT demonstrou a necessidade de intervenção em pacientes com hipertensão arterial com valores pressóricos abaixo de 140/90 mmHg na dependência da quantidade de risco adicional dos pacientes. Os resultados do estudo SPRINT motivaram alterações ou inclusões de seus dados em várias diretrizes nacionais e internacionais, tais como Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia, American Heart Association e European Society of Cardiology


The three studies that have had an important influence on the clinical practice of who works with arterial hypertension were the SIMPLICITY HTN-3, PATHWAY 2 and SPRINT studies. The SIMPLICITY HTN-3 study raised doubts around a procedure that was already being used in clinical practice, the denervation of the sympathetic renal nerve through radiofrequency wave ablation. It was the first study with a control group that did not show a difference between the specific blood pressure control outcomes in patients with resistant hypertension. Therefore, the Simplicity HTN 3 Study modified clinical practice in the sense that all hypertension guidelines are unanimous in stating that currently such a procedure should be reserved for specific clinical investigation laboratories researching the method and should not be used as an established treatment option. The PATHWAY2 study consolidated the use of the mineralocorticoid receptor blocker (spironolactone) as the fourth drug in the resistant arterial hypertension treatment flowchart. The results were so impactful that the European guideline for arterial hypertension changed its orientation around the pharmacological sequence of resistant hypertension treatment substantially. Finally, the SPRINT study demonstrated the need for intervention in patients with arterial hypertension with pressure values below 140/90 mmHg, depending on the amount of additional cardiovascular risk in those patients. The results of the SPRINT study promoted changes to or inclusions of its data in various national and international guidelines, such as the Brazilian Society of Cardiology, the American Heart Association and the European Society of Cardiology

RESUMO

INTRODUÇÃO: feocromocitoma (Feo) tumor secretor de catecolaminas originado das células cromafins da medula adrenal e gânglios simpáticos, acomete 0,2% dos hipertensos entre quarta e quinta década de vida, 10% são malignos. Diferencia-se quanto malignidade pelo grau de invasão. Apresenta-se como hipertensão resistente ou paroxismos de cefaleia, sudorese e taquicardia. Os exames específicos utilizados para screnning são: laboratoriais e de imagem. Tem localização preferencial na pelve mas 15% tem origem extra adrenal. A cintilografia com metaiodobenzilguanidina (MIBG) é exame de excelência para confirmação diagnostica Seu tratamento é cirúrgico. CASO CLÍNICO: Sexo masculino 30 anos diagnostico de hipertensão arterial diabetes mellitus dislipidemia e tabagismo. Apresentava picos hipertensivos associado a palpitações, vômitos, cefaleia, tremores e sudorese. Pai e irmão hipertensos. Função renal preservada proteinúria de 300 mg/24H eletrocardiograma (ECG) com taquicardia sinusal sem sobrecarga ventricular esquerda. Laboratório: metanefrinas urinárias e normetaepinefrina elevadas TC de abdome evidenciou massa na adrenal direita com focos de calcificação e necrose no seu interior após injeção de meio de contraste Anatomopatológico do material confirmou o diagnóstico de Feo. Após 3 anos da cirurgia passa a evoluir com piora no controle da pressão arterial (PA) de modo progressivo fundo de olho com retinopatia grau III e hipertrofia ventricular esquerda ao ECG, função renal normal. Feita suspeita de recidiva tumoral confirmada por cintilografia com MIBG em loja suprarrenal direita Tomografia por emissão de pósitrons (PET-CT) identificou múltiplas linfonodomegalias retroperitoneais sugestivas de acometimento neoplásico. Realizou RNM de crânio e abdome e TC de tórax, que evidenciaram metástases ósseas em crânio e linfonodos abdominais. Feito diagnóstico de Feo maligno com metástase óssea em crânio e linfonodos abdominais sendo encaminhado para terapia com 300 mCi MIBG. DISCUSSÃO: Após sucesso cirúrgico durante alguns anos a hipertensão arterial recrudesceu. A cintilografia com MIBG mostrou recidiva da imagem. Devido a evolução não habitual iniciou-se investigação para sítios de metástases. A recidiva do tumor com metástases a distância ocorre em uma pequena parcela desta população mesmo que tardiamente e tratamento específico deve ser imposto. (AU)

RESUMO

Importance: Studies have found that patients at high cardiovascular risk often fail to receive evidence-based therapies in community practice. Objective: To evaluate whether a multifaceted quality improvement intervention can improve the prescription of evidence-based therapies. Design, Setting, and Participants: In this 2-arm cluster randomized clinical trial, patients with established atherothrombotic disease from 40 public and private outpatient clinics (clusters) in Brazil were studied. Patients were recruited from August 2016 to August 2017, with follow-up to August 2018. Data were analyzed in September 2018. Interventions: Case management, audit and feedback reports, and distribution of educational materials (to health care professionals and patients) vs routine practice. Main Outcomes and Measures: The primary end point was prescription of evidence-based therapies (ie, statins, antiplatelet therapy, and angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers) using the all-or-none approach at 12 months after the intervention period in patients without contraindications. Results: Of the 1619 included patients, 1029 (63.6%) were male, 1327 (82.0%) had coronary artery disease (843 [52.1%] with prior acute myocardial infarction), 355 (21.9%) had prior ischemic stroke or transient ischemic attack, and 197 (12.2%) had peripheral vascular disease, and the mean (SD) age was 65.6 (10.5) years. Among randomized clusters, 30 (75%) were cardiology sites, 6 (15%) were primary care units, and 26 (65%) were teaching institutions. Among eligible patients, those in intervention clusters were more likely to receive a prescription of evidence-based therapies than those in control clusters (73.5% [515 of 701] vs 58.7% [493 of 840]; odds ratio, 2.30; 95% CI, 1.14-4.65). There were no differences between the intervention and control groups with regards to risk factor control (ie, hyperlipidemia, hypertension, or diabetes). Rates of education for smoking cessation were higher among current smokers in the intervention group than in the control group (51.9% [364 of 701] vs 18.2% [153 of 840]; odds ratio, 11.24; 95% CI, 2.20-57.43). The rate of cardiovascular mortality, acute myocardial infarction, and stroke was 2.6% for patients from intervention clusters and 3.4% for those in the control group (hazard ratio, 0.76; 95% CI, 0.43-1.34). Conclusions and Relevance: Among Brazilian patients at high cardiovascular risk, a quality improvement intervention resulted in improved prescription of evidence-based therapies. Trial Registration: ClinicalTrials.gov identifier: NCT02851732.

RESUMO

High blood pressure is the leading modifiable risk factor for mortality, accounting for nearly 1 in 5 deaths worldwide and 1 in 11 in low-income countries. Hypertension control remains a challenge, especially in low-resource settings. One approach to improvement is the prioritization of patient-centered care. However, consensus on the outcomes that matter most to patients is lacking. We aimed to define a standard set of patient-centered outcomes for evaluating hypertension management in low- and middle-income countries. The International Consortium for Health Outcomes Measurement convened a Working Group of 18 experts and patients representing 15 countries. We used a modified Delphi process to reach consensus on a set of outcomes, case-mix variables, and a timeline to guide data collection. Literature reviews, patient interviews, a patient validation survey, and an open review by hypertension experts informed the set. The set contains 18 clinical and patient-reported outcomes that reflect patient priorities and evidence-based hypertension management and case-mix variables to allow comparisons between providers. The domains included are hypertension control, cardiovascular complications, health-related quality of life, financial burden of care, medication burden, satisfaction with care, health literacy, and health behaviors. We present a core list of outcomes for evaluating hypertension care. They account for the unique challenges healthcare providers and patients face in low- and middle-income countries, yet are relevant to all settings. We believe that it is a vital step toward international benchmarking in hypertension care and, ultimately, value-based hypertension management.

RESUMO

Bariatric surgery is an effective strategy for blood pressure (BP) reduction, but most of the evidence relies on office BP measurements. In this study, we evaluated the impact of bariatric surgery on 24-hour BP profile, BP variability, and resistant hypertension prevalence. This is a randomized trial including obese patients with grade 1 and 2 using at least 2 antihypertensive drugs at maximal doses or >2 at moderate doses. Patients were allocated to either Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB) combined with medical therapy or medical therapy alone for 12 months. The primary outcome was the 24-hour BP profile and variability (average real variability of daytime and night time BP). We evaluated the nondipping status and prevalence of resistant hypertension as secondary end points. We included 100 patients (76% female, body mass index, 36.9±2.7 kg/m2). The 24-hour BP profile (including nondipping status) was similar after 12 months, but the RYGB group required less antihypertensive classes as compared to the medical therapy alone (0 [0­1] versus 3 [2.5­4] classes; P<0.01). The average real variability of systolic nighttime BP was lower after RYGB as compared to medical therapy (between-group difference, −1.63; 95% CI, −2.91 to −0.36; P=0.01). Prevalence of resistant hypertension was similar at baseline (RYGB, 10% versus MT, 16%; P=0.38), but it was significantly lower in the RYGB at 12 months (0% versus 14.9%; P<0.001). In conclusion, RYGB significantly reduced antihypertensive medications while promoting similar 24-hour BP profile and nondipping status. Interestingly, bariatric surgery improved BP variability and may decrease the burden of resistant hypertension associated with obesity. (AU)

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Translating evidence into clinical practice in the management of high cardiovascular risk patients is challenging. Few quality improvement interventions have rigorously evaluated their impact on both patient care and clinical outcomes. OBJECTIVES: The main objectives are to evaluate the impact of a multifaceted educational intervention on adherence to local guidelines for the prescription of statins, antiplatelets and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin II receptor blockers for high cardiovascular risk patients, as well as on the incidence of major cardiovascular events. DESIGN: We designed a pragmatic two arm cluster randomized trial involving 40 clusters. Clusters are randomized to receive a multifaceted quality improvement intervention or to routine practice (control). The multifaceted intervention includes: reminders, care algorithms, training of a case manager, audit and feedback reports, and distribution of educational materials to health care providers. The primary endpoint is the adherence to combined evidence-based therapies (statins, antiplatelet therapy and angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors or angiotensin receptor blockers) at 12 months after the intervention period in patients without contra-indications for these medications. All analyses follow the intention-to-treat principle and take the cluster design into account using linear mixed logistic regression modeling. SUMMARY: If proven effective, this multifaceted intervention would have wide utility as a means of promoting optimal usage of evidence-based interventions for the management of high cardiovascular risk patients.

RESUMO

OBJETIVO: Descrever o perfil de pacientes com e sem apneia obstrutiva do sono. MÉTODOS: Estudo transversal, descritivo, observacional, realizado em centro terciário de cardiologia, por meio da análise de 255 prontuários de pacientes consecutivos submetidos à polissonografia em um laboratório do sono do hospital. Os pacientes foram divididos de acordo com a presença de apneia obstrutiva do sono clinicamente significativa (índice de apneia e hipopneia ≥15 eventos/hora). Dentre as informações analisadas, estavam: características clínicas; dados antropométricos; antecedentes pessoais; medicamentos em uso; doença aterosclerótica; exames laboratoriais e polissonografia. RESULTADO: A prevalência da apneia obstrutiva do sono foi de 35,6%; deste porcentual, 90,1% apresentaram hipertensão arterial sistêmica; 70,3%, dislipidemias; 36,3%, tabagismo; e 35,2%, diabetes. Não houve diferença estatística com relação à maior parte dos parâmetros analisados, mas os pacientes com apneia obstrutiva do sono eram, em sua maioria, do sexo feminino, com idade mais avançada e maior índice de massa corporal, quando comparados aos indivíduos sem apneia obstrutiva do sono. CONCLUSÃO: Foi alta a prevalência de apneia obstrutiva do sono em indivíduos portadores de diversos fatores de risco cardiovasculares. Esta condição deve sempre ser pesquisada em indivíduos de maior risco cardiovascular.(AU)


OBJECTIVE: To describe the profile of patients with and without obstructive sleep apnea. METHODS: This is a cross-sectional, descriptive and observational study that was conducted in a tertiary cardiology center through the analysis of 255 records of consecutive patients who underwent polysomnography in a sleep laboratory of the hospital. Patients were divided according to the presence of clinically significant obstructive sleep apnea (apnea-hypopnea index ≥15 events/ hour). The analyses included: clinical features, anthropometric data, personal background, ongoing medication, atherosclerotic disease, laboratory tests and polysomnography. RESULTS: The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea was 35.6%; of these, 90.1% had hypertension, 70.3% dyslipidemias, 36.3% were smokers, and 35.2% had diabetes. There was no statistical difference in most of the parameters analyzed; however, patients with obstructive sleep apnea were mostly female, older and with higher BMI when compared to individuals without obstructive sleep apnea. CONCLUSION: The prevalence of obstructive sleep apnea was high in individuals with various cardiovascular risk factors. Therefore, it is a condition that should always be investigated in patients with higher cardiovascular risk.(AU)

RESUMO

Obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA) is the main secondary form associated with resistant hypertension (RH), but it is largely underdiagnosed and consequently undertreated in clinical practice. The Berlin questionnaire (BQ) is a useful tool among general population, but seems to not perform well among patients with RH. Recently, NoSAS score was validated in a large population, however, has not been tested in the cardiovascular scenario. Thus, we aimed to compare BQ versus the NoSAS score as screening tools for OSA in RH. In the present study, patients with confirmed diagnosis of RH were invited to perform polysomnography. OSA was diagnosed by an apnoea-hypopnoea index (AHI) ≥15 events/h. BQ and NoSAS were applied in a blinded way. We calculated the sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value (PPV), negative predictive value (NPV) and area under the curve (AUC) of the two sleep questionnaires to detect OSA in RH. The frequency of OSA was 64%. The BQ presented a better sensitivity (91 vs. 72%) and higher values of NPV (67 vs. 54%) than NoSAS score. In contrast, the NoSAS score had higher specificity for excluding OSA (58 vs. 33%) and higher PPV (75 vs. 70%). Compared to the BQ, NoSAS score had a better AUC (0.55 vs. 0.64) but these values are in the fail to poor accuracy range. In conclusion, both BQ and NoSAS score had low accuracy for detecting OSA in RH. Considering the high frequency of OSA, objective sleep study may be considered in these patients.

RESUMO

The aim of this study is to compare spironolactone versus clonidine as the fourth drug in patients with resistant hypertension in a multicenter, randomized trial. Medical therapy adherence was checked by pill counting. Patients with resistant hypertension (no office and ambulatory blood pressure [BP] monitoring control, despite treatment with 3 drugs, including a diuretic, for 12 weeks) were randomized to an additional 12-week treatment with spironolactone (12.5-50 mg QD) or clonidine (0.1-0.3 mg BID). The primary end point was BP control during office (<140/90 mm Hg) and 24-h ambulatory (<130/80 mm Hg) BP monitoring. Secondary end points included BP control from each method and absolute BP reduction. From 1597 patients recruited, 11.7% (187 patients) fulfilled the resistant hypertension criteria. Compared with the spironolactone group (n=95), the clonidine group (n=92) presented similar rates of achieving the primary end point (20.5% versus 20.8%, respectively; relative risk, 1.01 [0.55-1.88]; P=1.00). Secondary end point analysis showed similar office BP (33.3% versus 29.3%) and ambulatory BP monitoring (44% versus 46.2%) control for spironolactone and clonidine, respectively. However, spironolactone promoted greater decrease in 24-h systolic and diastolic BP and diastolic daytime ambulatory BP than clonidine. Per-protocol analysis (limited to patients with ≥80% adherence to spironolactone/clonidine treatment) showed similar results regarding the primary end point. In conclusion, clonidine was not superior to spironolactone in true resistant hypertensive patients, but the overall BP control was low (≈21%). Considering easier posology and greater decrease in secondary end points, spironolactone is preferable for the fourth-drug therapy. CLINICAL TRIAL REGISTRATION: URL: http://www.clinicaltrials.gov.

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Recent research efforts on bariatric surgery have focused on metabolic and diabetes mellitus resolution. Randomized trials designed to assess the impact of bariatric surgery in patients with obesity and hypertension are needed. METHODS: In this randomized, single-center, nonblinded trial, we included patients with hypertension (using ≥2 medications at maximum doses or >2 at moderate doses) and a body mass index between 30.0 and 39.9 kg/m2. Patients were randomized to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass plus medical therapy or medical therapy alone. The primary end point was reduction of ≥30% of the total number of antihypertensive medications while maintaining systolic and diastolic blood pressure <140 mm Hg and 90 mm Hg, respectively, at 12 months. RESULTS: We included 100 patients (70% female, mean age 43.8±9.2 years, mean body mass index 36.9±2.7 kg/m2), and 96% completed follow-up. Reduction of ≥30% of the total number of antihypertensive medications while maintaining controlled blood pressure occurred in 41 of 49 patients from the gastric bypass group (83.7%) compared with 6 of 47 patients (12.8%) from the control group with a rate ratio of 6.6 (95% confidence interval, 3.1-14.0; P<0.001). Remission of hypertension was present in 25 of 49 (51%) and 22 of 48 (45.8%) patients randomized to gastric bypass, considering office and 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring, respectively, whereas no patient submitted to medical therapy was free of antihypertensive drugs at 12 months. A post hoc analysis for the primary end point considering the SPRINT (Systolic Blood Pressure Intervention Trial) target reached consistent results, with a rate ratio of 3.8 (95% confidence interval, 1.4-10.6; P=0.005). Eleven patients (22.4%) from the gastric bypass group and none in the control group were able to achieve SPRINT levels without antihypertensives. Waist circumference, body mass index, fasting plasma glucose, glycohemoglobin, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides, high-sensitivity C-reactive protein, and 10-year Framingham risk score were lower in the gastric bypass than in the control group. CONCLUSIONS: Bariatric surgery represents an effective strategy for blood pressure control in a broad population of patients with obesity and hypertension.

RESUMO

A causa mais comum de mortalidade no paciente diabético é a doença cardiovascular, tendo como um de seus principais representantes a doença arterial coronariana (DAC)...(AU)Homens acima de 40 anos e mulheres acima de 50 anos com DM tipo um ou tipo dois, geralmente, apresentam risco de eventos coronarianos > 2% ao ano. O risco de eventos cardiovasculares ou óbito será mais elevado quando houver diagnóstico clínico de DAC crônica após infarto do miocárdio, acidente vascular cerebral (AVC) ou ataque isquêmico transitório ou mesmo na presença de angina do peito, dispneia de origem isquêmica (equiva-lente anginoso), claudicação intermitente ou doença da aorta. Os objetivos fundamentais do tratamento da DAC crônica nos pacientes diabéticos não se diferenciam da população não diabética e incluem: prevenção do infarto do miocárdio e redução da mortalidade; redução dos sintomas e da ocorrência da isquemia miocárdica, proporcionando melhor qualidade de vida. Todos os pacientes diabéticos com doença cardiovascular aterosclerótica estabelecida devem receber terapia farmacológica otimizada, medicamentos que reduzam a incidência de infarto e aumentem a sobrevida e medicamentos que melhorem a qualidade de vida dos pacientes.

Patientswere randomized to Roux-en-Y gastric bypass plus medical therapy or medicaltherapy alone. The primary end point was reduction of ≥30% of the totalnumber of antihypertensive medications while maintaining systolic and diastolicblood pressure <140 mmHg and 90 mmHg, respectively, at 12 months. RESULTS: We included 100 patients (70% female, mean age 43.8±9.2 years,mean body mass index 36.9±2.7 kg/m2), and 96% completed follow-up.Reduction of ≥30% of the total number of antihypertensive medicationswhile maintaining controlled blood pressure occurred in 41 of 49 patientsfrom the gastric bypass group (83.7%) compared with 6 of 47 patients(12.8%) from the control group with a rate ratio of 6.6 (95% confidenceinterval, 3.1–14.0; P<0.001). Remission of hypertension was present in 25of 49 (51%) and 22 of 48 (45.8%) patients randomized to gastric bypass,considering office and 24-hour ambulatory blood pressure monitoring...(AU)

RESUMO

Resumo Fundamentação: desde o primeiro posicionamento da Sociedade Brasileira de Diabetes (SBD) sobre diabetes e prevenção cardiovascular, em 2014,1 importantes estudos têm sido publicados na área de prevenção cardiovascular e tratamento do diabetes,2 os quais contribuíram para a evolução na prevenção primária e secundária nos pacientes com diabetes. Ferramentas de estratificação de risco mais precisas, novos fármacos hipolipemiantes e novos antidiabéticos com efeitos cardiovasculares e redução da mortalidade, são parte desta nova abordagem para os pacientes com diabetes. O reconhecimento de que o diabetes é uma doença heterogênea foi fundamental, sendo claramente demonstrado que nem todos os pacientes diabéticos pertencem a categorias de risco alto ou muito alto. Um porcentual elevado é composto por pacientes jovens, sem os fatores de risco clássicos, os quais podem ser classificados adequadamente em categorias de risco intermediário ou mesmo em baixo risco cardiovascular. O presente posicionamento revisa as melhores evidências atualmente disponíveis e propõe uma abordagem prática, baseada em risco, para o tratamento de pacientes com diabetes. Estruturação: perante este desafio e reconhecendo a natureza multifacetada da doença, a SBD uniu-se à Sociedade Brasileira de Cardiologia (SBC) e à Sociedade Brasileira de Endocrinologia e Metabolismo (SBEM), e formou um painel de especialistas, constituído por 28 cardiologistas e endocrinologistas, para revisar as melhores evidências disponíveis e elaborar uma diretriz contendo recomendações práticas para a estratificação de risco e prevenção da Doença Cardiovascular (DVC) no Diabetes Melito (DM). As principais inovações incluem: (1) considerações do impacto de novos hipolipemiantes e das novas medicações antidiabéticas no risco cardiovascular; (2) uma abordagem prática, baseada em fator de risco, para orientar o uso das estatinas, incluindo novas definições das metas da Lipoproteína de Baixa Densidade-colesterol (LDL-colesterol) e colesterol não Lipoproteína de Alta Densidade HDL; (3) uma abordagem baseada em evidências, para avaliar a isquemia miocárdica silenciosa (IMS) e a aterosclerose subclínica em pacientes com diabetes; (4) as abordagens mais atuais para o tratamento da hipertensão; e (5) recomendação de atualizações para o uso de terapia antiplaquetária. Esperamos que esta diretriz auxilie os médicos no cuidado dedicado aos pacientes com diabetes. Métodos: inicialmente, os membros do painel foram divididos em sete subcomitês para definirem os tópicos principais que necessitavam de uma posição atualizada das sociedades. Os membros do painel pesquisaram e buscaram no PubMed estudos clínicos randomizados e metanálises de estudos clínicos e estudos observacionais de boa qualidade, publicados entre 1997 e 2017, usando termos MeSH: [diabetes], [diabetes tipo 2], [doença cardiovascular], [estratificação de risco cardiovascular] [doença arterial coronária], [rastreamento], [isquemia silenciosa], [estatinas], [hipertensão], [ácido acetilsalicílico]. Estudos observacionais de baixa qualidade, metanálises com alta heterogeneidade e estudos transversais não foram incluídos, embora talvez tenham impactado no Nível de Evidência indicado. A opinião de especialistas foi usada quando os resultados das buscas não eram satisfatórios para um item específico. É importante salientar que este posicionamento não teve a intenção de incluir uma revisão sistemática rigorosa. Um manuscrito preliminar, destacando recomendações de graus e níveis de evidência (Quadro 1), foi esboçado. Este passo levou a várias discussões entre os membros dos subcomitês, que revisaram os achados e fizeram novas sugestões. O manuscrito foi, então, revisto pelo autor líder, encarregado da padronização do texto e da inclusão de pequenas alterações, sendo submetido à apreciação mais detalhada pelos membros dos comitês, buscando uma posição de consenso. Depois desta fase, o manuscrito foi enviado para a banca editorial e edição final, sendo encaminhado para publicação. Quadro 1 Graus de recomendações e níveis de evidências adotados nesta revisão Grau de recomendação Classe I A evidência é conclusiva ou, se não, existe consenso de que o procedimento ou tratamento é seguro e eficaz Classe II Há evidências contraditórias ou opiniões divergentes sobre segurança, eficácia, ou utilidade do tratamento ou procedimento Classe IIa As opiniões são favoráveis ao tratamento ou procedimento. A maioria dos especialistas aprova Classe IIb A eficácia é bem menos estabelecida, e as opiniões são divergentes Classe III Há evidências ou consenso de que o tratamento ou procedimento não é útil, eficaz, ou pode ser prejudicial Níveis de Evidência A Múltiplos estudos clínicos randomizados concordantes e bem elaborados ou metanálises robustas de estudos clínicos randomizados B Dados de metanálises menos robustas, um único estudo clínico randomizado ou estudos observacionais C Opinião dos especialistas

RESUMO

BACKGROUND: Acute cardiogenic pulmonary edema (ACPE) is a life-threatening condition. OSA may be a modifiable risk factor for ACPE recurrence. This study was designed to evaluate the impact of OSA on the incidence of cardiovascular events following ACPE recovery. METHODS: Consecutive patients with confirmed ACPE from 3 centers underwent a sleep study following clinical stabilization. OSA was defined as an apnea-hypopnea index (AHI) ≥ 15 events/h. The mean follow-up was 1 year, and the primary outcome was ACPE recurrence. RESULTS: A total of 104 patients were included in the final analysis; 61% of the patients had OSA. A higher rate of ACPE recurrence (25 vs 6 episodes; P = .01) and a higher incidence of myocardial infarction (15 vs 0 episodes; P = .0004) were observed in patients with OSA than in those without OSA. All 17 deaths occurred in the OSA group (P = .0001). In a Cox proportional hazards regression analysis, OSA was independently associated with ACPE recurrence (hazard ratio [HR], 3.3 [95% CI, 1.2-8.8]; P = .01), incidence of myocardial infarction (HR, 2.3 [95% CI, 1.1-9.5]; P = .02), cardiovascular death (HR, 5.4 [95% CI, 1.4-48.4]; P = .004), and total death (HR, 6.5 [95% CI, 1.2-64.0]; P = .005). When the analysis was limited only to patients with OSA, levels of AHI and hypoxemic burden and rates of sleep-onset ACPE were significantly higher in those who presented with ACPE recurrence or who died than in those who did not experience these events. CONCLUSIONS: OSA is independently associated with higher rates of ACPE recurrence and both fatal and nonfatal cardiovascular events.
