My primary interest has been in the interplay between hypertension, kidney disease and vascular disease. Current interests include:
- Profile and outcomes of acute severe hypertension in hospitalized patients (Lama Ghazi MD PhD, Aldo Peixoto MD and Perry Wilson MD).
- Use of systemic hemodynamics to phenotype hypertension as a tool to redefine mechanisms of hypertension (cross sectional study, PI Marcelo Orias MD PhD).
- Study of arterial mechanics in elderly patients with hypertension (cohort study, PI Sebastiao Ferreira MD PhD).
- Clinical trials (Site PI: Aldo Peixoto): 1) droxidopa in neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (RESTORE).
