The identification that primary aldosteronism is a common cause of resistant hypertension is a significant advance in our ability to care for patients with hypertension. Primary aldosteronism is common, and when unrecognized is associated with increased incidence of adverse cardiovascular outcomes. Identification of primary aldosteronism is based upon use of the plasma aldosterone level, plasma renin activity and the aldosterone:renin ratio ARR. Differentiation between unilateral and bilateral autonomous adrenal aldosterone production then guides further therapy, with use of mineralocorticoid receptor blockers for those with bilateral autonomous adrenal aldosterone production and laparoscopic adrenalectomy for those with unilateral autonomous aldosterone production.
In this review, we discuss in detail the pathogenesis of primary aldosteronism-induced hypertension and potassium disorders, the evaluation of the patient with suspected primary aldosteronism and the management of primary aldosteronism, both through medications and through surgery. The goal of medicine is to prevent or minimize the chance of disease. High blood pressure substantially increases all cause morbidity and mortality, including myocardial infarction, congestive heart failure, cerebrovascular accident CVArenal failure, claudication, limb loss, and death.
Evidence developed over the past decades has led to the recognition that autonomous adrenal aldosterone production, termed primary aldosteronism, is surprisingly common in hypertensive patients. Simultaneously, autonomous aldosterone production leads to altered potassium homeostasis, which may contribute to the hypertension. Primary aldosteronism is by no means the only cause of resistant hypertension.
Other causes include renovascular hypertension, other adrenal disorders, including both pheochromocytoma and Cushing syndrome, and specific genetic defects leading to altered renal sodium and potassium transport. The latter, in particular, also lead to potassium homeostasis disorders. We briefly review the screening for these conditions in the evaluation of the patient with resistant hypertension; excellent recent reviews of the evaluation and management of renovascular hypertension are available to the interested reader 9 — 11and discussion of genetic disorders leading to altered renal sodium and potassium transport and thereby causing resistant hypertension are available in this issue of Seminars in Nephrology.
Aldosterone regulates blood pressure by several mechanisms Figure 1. These include effects on the kidneys, vasculature, central nervous system CNS and through endocrine hormones.
No single effect is sufficient to explain the hypertension that occurs in primary hyperaldosteronism; taken together they explain why primary hyperaldosteronism causes hypertension that can be so difficult to control. Indeed, a recent study exemplifies the central role of aldosterone in blood pressure regulation. Mice were generated which lacked aldosterone synthase, a key enzyme in aldosterone production.
These mice exhibited an approximately fold increase in plasma renin activity and a 3. Thus, the lack of aldosterone synthesis results in hypotension, despite a secondary significant stimulation of the renin-angiotensin system. Mechanisms through which aldosterone increases blood pressure.
Aldosterone production is regulated in large through the renin-angiotensin system, acting through the AT 1 receptor to stimulate adrenal aldosterone production. Aldosterone has multiple effects that regulate blood pressure. These include actions in the CNS, likely mediated through increased sympathetic nervous system tone, direct stimulation of renal NaCl retention, increased arterial vasoconstriction, decreased arterial vasodilatory responses and stimulation of endothelin.
Aldosterone has mediates multiple renal effects that regulate blood pressure. First, aldosterone stimulates renal sodium chloride retention by increasing expression of the thiazide-sensitive sodium-chloride cotransporter in the distal convoluted tubule DCTthe amiloride-sensitive epithelial sodium channel ENaCin the collecting duct and the chloride-reabsorbing protein, pendrin, in the cortical collecting duct 13 — Moreover, the coordinate effect of aldosterone on both ENaC and pendrin has synergistic effects on blood pressure and plasma volume regulation It is important to recognize, however, that aldosterone-induced plasma volume expansion cannot be the only mechanism through which aldosterone increases blood pressure.
In particular, case reports of individuals with end-stage renal disease and no residual renal function demonstrate that aldosterone, completely independent of renal-mediated NaCl retention, can cause severe hypertension through activation of the mineralocorticoid receptor In the cortical collecting duct, aldosterone consistently stimulates sodium reabsorption and potassium secretion 1920 However, despite this increase in renal cortical potassium secretion, total renal potassium excretion typically does not change 21 — Within the renal cortex aldosterone increases expression of the potassium channels which secrete potassium 2425 but also stimulates K absorptive pumps H, K-ATPases in the renal cortex and medulla As discussed elsewhere, potassium depletion predisposes to hypertension through a variety of mechanisms 28 — Aldosterone increases both basal vascular tone and vascular reactivity to circulating vasoconstrictors, including norepinephrine, epinephrine, angiotensin II and vasopressin 31 Simultaneously, aldosterone decreases flow-mediated vasodilatation, perhaps due to decreased nitric oxide production resulting from decreased endothelial nitric oxide synthase expression 33 Finally, aldosterone causes perivascular fibrosis, and increases vascular expression of endothelin These authors contributed equally to this work and are listed in alphabetical order.
The stratum corneum as the outermost epidermal layer protects against exsiccation and infection. Both the underlying cornified envelope CE and the intercellular lipid matrix contribute essentially to these two main protective barriers. Consequently, newborn mutant mice die shortly after birth from transepidermal water loss. Mutant skin is prone to Candida albicans infection highlighting ULC-Cers to be pivotal for both barrier functions.
Persistent periderm, hyperkeratosis and deficient cornification are hallmarks of mutant skin demonstrating loss of Cers to trigger a keratinocyte maturation arrest at an embryonic pre-barrier stage. The multilayered epidermis of mammalian skin represents the first protective barrier towards environment. When the two main barrier functions against transepidermal water loss TEWL and pathogen invasion become deficient, such as in ichthyosis, atopic dermatitis and psoriasis, specific, indispensable barrier components of the cornified epidermal layer, particularly the cornified envelope CE and the extracellular lipid lamellae ELLare severely altered.
Intracellularly, lipid precursors of the ELL are packed into membrane-limited, tubulovesicular lamellar bodies LBs during keratinocyte maturation together with a variety of proteins, including hydrolytic enzymes and antimicrobial peptides. LBs are preferentially extruded at the interface between the viable and anuclear epidermal layers, i. A key regulator of this secretory process is an extracellular calcium gradient 12.
Alignment of LB content into mature ELL requires sequential extracellular processing of lipid precursors, glucosylceramides GlcCers and phospholipids, and establishment of the cornified lipid envelope CLEa lipid monolayer covalently bound to the CE and crucial for the competence of the water permeability barrier WPB.
Importantly, the latter has been shown to have anti-microbial activity in vitro 4—7. However, definite knowledge of these processes and their regulation is of fundamental importance for understanding skin pathophysiology, a prerequisite for targeted therapy.
Depending on the substrate specifity towards the length of the acyl-CoAs and the degree of saturation, each of these enzymes synthesizes a subset of Cer species. Here, we show by expressing CerS3 in yeast and human cell cultures and by analyzing the epidermal lipids of CerS2- and CerS3-deficient mice that CerS3 function cannot be replaced by one of the other five CerS.
Hallmarks of CerS3 mutant mouse skin include discontinuity of ELL, impairment of CLE as shown with unmasked loricrin, hyperkeratosis, persistence of periderm and non-peripheral corneodesmosomes CDs and defective profilaggrin processing. Our data demonstrate ULC-Cers to be engaged in cornification and apoptosis of peridermal cells.

The R rating is normally required if the film contains two utterances or if the word is used in a sexual context; however, there are exceptions to this rule. In some cases, filmmakers appealed the rating because their target audience might avoid an R-rated film.
Censors have been more lenient about the word in films that portray historical events.

Learn more in this notice. Code CPG continues the effort to promote the use of materials recovered from the municipal solid waste stream. Buying products made with recovered materials ensures that the materials collected in recycling programs will be used again in the manufacture of new products. There are 61 products designated in eight categories. EPA designated products that are or can be made with recovered materials, and recommended practices for buying these products.
Once a product is designated, procuring agencies are required to purchase it with the highest recovered material content level practicable. EPA has developed criteria and a process for product designation and recommendations for percentage of recovered content for each designated product. EPA published final or proposed recycled-content recommendations for each product. All proposals, designations, and recommendations are published in the Federal Register.
EPA has already designated or is proposing to designate the products listed below. They are grouped into eight categories which are listed below followed by examples of products in those categories:. Product Resource Guides are also available for each of the eight product categories. The CPG Product Supplier Directory includes manufacturers, vendors, and suppliers for each product so you can use it to search for specific companies and products.
