Hypertensive Crisis and Scenario in Nepal

Hypertensive crisis Pratap Sagar Tiwari, MD, Internal Medicine, NGMC

HTN ….global issue    Worldwide, noncommunicable diseases (NCDs) surpass CD as causes of death. 1 Nearly 2/3rd of the 57 mill deaths globally in 2008 were due to NCDs. 2 Of the NCD risk factors, the % of deaths attributable to HTN globally is the highest (13%).2 Ref: 1. World Health Organization. Disease and injury regional mortality estimates for 2008. Geneva: WHO, 2011. http://www.who.int/healthinfo/global_burden_disease/estimates_regional/en/index.html - acessed 9th feb 2014. 2. World Health Organization. Global status report on noncommunicable diseases 2010. Geneva: WHO, 2011. S02/21

HTN…Scenario in Nepal    1. In 2008, nearly 50% of total deaths in Nepal were estimated to be due to NCDs, and CVD accounted for 25% of these deaths. 1 Hypertension, one of the major RFs for CVD, was estimated to be present in 26.6/28.6 %(m/f) of Nepalese adults aged 25 yrs and above.1 Ref: World Health Organization. Global health observatory. th feb 2014. http://apps.who.int/gho/data/?theme=main# - accessed 9 S03/21 Geneva.

HTN…Scenario in Nepal   Other studies, which were heterogeneous in design, showed variable results, with prevalence estimates ranging from 18.8% to 41.8% .(table) A study comparing the prevalence of hypertension in the same community in 1981 and 2006 reported a threefold increase in prevalence, confirming the trend of a dramatic increase in CVD risk factors in Nepal.1  Ref: 1. Vaidya A, Pathak RP, Pandey MR. Prevalence of hypertension in Nepalese community triples in 25 years: a repeat cross-sectional study in rural Kathmandu. Indian Heart J. 2012;64(2):128– S04/21 131.

HTN…Scenario in Nepal   In 19811, only 4.8% of the HTN people were aware of their high BP status while almost 1/3rd (31.8%) of HTN in 20062 and 60 % were aware in 20113 . In 2006, BP was under control in 9.5% of the hypertensives. According to Statistical Fact Sheet 2013 Update from AHA In the United States, 1 out of every 3 adults have high BP and 47.5 % do not have it controlled and almost 50 % of death was attributable to high bp.

Scenario A    A 50 yrs old obese Male who is a chronic smoker comes to ER with c/o palpitation and headache. There is no H/o HTN in the past. O/E Bp is 210/120 mmhg. Acute severe Hypertension S08/21

Scenario B    A 40 yrs old obese F was planned for Cholecystectomy . On PAC, Bp was 190/110 mmhg. Acc to pt, she was diagnosed previously as HTN but she noncompliant to drugs. Uncontrolled Hypertension S09/21

Scenario C    A 40 yrs old M with a history of HTN and BPH had a recurrence of head and neck cancer. Two hours after undergoing a modified radical neck dissection and tracheostomy. BP was recorded to be 200/110 mmhg. Acute Postoperative Hypertension S10/21

Scenario D    A 55 yrs old Male came to ER complaining of headache and blurring of vision . He is a known c/o HTN since 4 years and has been taking 3 different antihtn drugs that includes a diuretic. His bp was found to be 190/126mmhg. Accelerated hypertension S11/21

Scenario E    A 55 yrs old Male went to other center with same compaints of headache and blurring of vision . He is a known c/o HTN since 4 years and has been taking 3 different antihtn drugs that includes a diuretic. His bp was found to be 190/126 mmhg. Pt is confused and hematuria is present.

Terminologies..continue  Malignant hypertension and accelerated hypertension are both hypertensive emergencies, with similar outcomes and therapies. In order to diagnose malignant hypertension, papilledema must be present.1  Note: Preexisting Essential HTN: Essential Malignant hypertension Preexisting Secondary HTN: Secondary Malignant hypertension   Ref: 1. Rodriguez MA, Kumar SK, De Caro M. Hypertensive crisis. Cardiol Rev. Mar-Apr 2010;18(2):102-7. S17/21

Terminologies..continue   Acute elevations in blood pressure (>20 %) in the intraoperative period are typically considered hypertensive emergencies during surgery. 1 Postoperative hypertension is defined as systolic BP≥ 190 mmhg and/or diastolic BP ≥ 100 mmhg on 2 consecutive readings following surgery . 2,3 Ref: 1.

Perioperative hypertension.

Terminologies..continue Acute onset, persistent (lasting ≥15 min), severe systolic (≥ 160 mmhg) or severe diastolic hypertension (≥ 110 mmhg) or both in pregnant or postpartum women with preeclampsia constitutes a hypertensive emergency 1,2,3 Major risk factors : H/o HTn for atleast 4 yrs, h/o htn in previous pregnancy and Renal insufficiency  Ref: 1.

Causes of hypertensive emergencies       Essential hypertension Renal disease: Acute GN, Vasculitis, HUS, TTP, RAS Pregnancy: Eclampsia Endocrine: Pheochromocytoma, Cushing’s syndrome Drugs: Cocaine, sympathomimmetics, erythropoietin, cyclos porin, antihypertensive withdrawal, Interactions with monoamine-oxidase inhibitors, amphetamines, lead intoxication Others: Head injury, cerebral S20/21 infarction/hemorrhage, brain tumors
