Aldo Jose Peixoto MD, FASN, FASH

Professor of Medicine (Nephrology); Associate Chair for Ambulatory Services Operations and Quality, Department of Internal Medicine; Clinical Chief, Section of Nephrology

Research Interests

Clinical and prognostic relevance of trans-telephonic home BP monitoring; Arterial stiffness in kidney disease; Systems factors related to the delivery of care in hypertension; Hemodynamic phenotyping in hypertension; Renal sympathetic denervation in resistant hypertension.

Current Projects

- Evaluation of the effectiveness of home BP telemonitoring in hypertension (cohort study, PI Peixoto).

- Evaluation of long-term variability of BP in the home environment (cohort study, PI Peixoto).

- Behavior of aortic mechanics and transmission of pulsatile BP load to the kidneys (cross sectional study, PI Peixoto).

- Use of systemic hemodynamics to phenotype hypertension as a tool to redefine mechanisms of hypertension (cross sectional study, PI Marcelo Orias MD PhD).
