  1. Advantages of renin-angiotensin system blockade in the treatmentof cardiovascular disease V. Gerc Clinic for Heart Disease and Rheumatism Sarajevo

  2. The cardiovascular continua in cardiovascular disease

  3. The pathophysiological continua in cardiovascular disease

  4. Angiotensin II is central to atherosclerotic mechanisms Oxidative Stress Inflammation NAD(P)H oxidase activity ↑ Vascular permeability ↑ Leucocyte infiltration ↑ Reactive oxygen species ↑ Activation of signalling pathways LDL peroxidation ↑ Production of inflammatory mediators Angiotensin II LDL peroxidation ↓ Nitric oxide ↓ Proliferation of VSMCs Vasoconstriction Matrix deposition PAI-1 activation Platelet aggregation MMP activation Endothelial dysfunction Tissue remodelling Schmieder et al. Lancet 2007;369:1208−1219

  5. Vascular Risk Factors and Endothelial Dysfunction Role of oxidative stress: Angiotensin II Smoking Hypertension Homocysteine oxLDL Diabetes oxidative stress - - Bradykinin/NO Antioxidants (?) Endothelial Dysfunction mod. from Gibbons GH, Clin Cardiol 20 (1997)

  6. Long-term cardiovascular effects of angiotensin II

  7. Metabolism of the Renin-Angiotensin System

  8. Mechanism of action of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors

  9. EFFECTS OF ANGITENSIN II •  vasoconstriction (”afterload” ) •  reabsorption of Na+ and water (“preload” ) •  coronary constriction •  syntesis of cellular proteins (HLV) •  fibroblastic hyperplasia (myocardial fibrosis) •  apoptosis of myocites • diastolic dysfunction of the heart

  10. EFFECTS OF ANGIOTENSIN II •  sympathetic,  vagal activity •  adrenocortex ( catecholamine, aldosterone) •  endothelial dysfunction •  PAI-1 ( fibrinolysis) •  tissue factor •  proliferation and migration of smooth muscles

  11. Potential pathogenic propertiesof Angiotensin II • Heart • Myocardial hypertrophy • Interstitial fibrosis

  12. Potential pathogenic propertiesof Angiotensin II • Coronary Arteries • Endothelial dysfunction with decreased release of nitric oxide • Coronary constriction via release of noradrelanine • Increased oxidative stress; oxygen derived free radicals formed via NADH • Promotion of inflamatory response and atheroma

  13. Potential pathogenic propertiesof Angiotensin II • Kidneys • Increased intraglomerular pressure • Increased protein leak • Glomerular growth and fibrosis • Increased sodium reabsorption

  14. Potential pathogenic propertiesof Angiotensin II • Adrenals • Increased formation of aldosterone

  15. Potential pathogenic propertiesof Angiotensin II • Coagulation system • Increased fibrinogen • Increased PAI-1

  16. Inhibition of the RAS • Inhibition of the RAS is established for the treatment and now prevention of a wide range of cardiovascular disease. The basic concept hinges on the adverse effects of excess angiotensin II and increase protective bradykinin.

  17. Renin – Angiotensin - Aldosterone system: where inhibitors act

  18. Dual role of ACE inhibitors, both preventing and treating cardiovascular disease

  19. Pharmacodynamic effects of ACEI

  20. Indications for ACEI, based on trial data • 1.Heart failure, all stages • 2. Hypertension • 3.AMI, postinfarct LV dysfunction • 4.Nephropathy, nondiabetic and diabetic • 5. Diabetes type 2, lessens new microalbuminuria and LV hypertrophy

  21. Antiatherosclerotic effect of LISINOPRIL Blood pressure Reduction of cardiovascular events Oxidative stress Inflammation Endothelian dysf. Nitric oxide Growth of the plaque Fibrinolysis tPA PAI-1 ACE

  22. Pleiotropic effects of renin-angiotensin system blockers

  23. Pleiotropic effects

  24. Angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors in hypertensive patients at high cardiovascular risk ACEI

  25. ACE inhibitors in hypertension • ACEI are effective as monotherapy in BP reduction in most patients. There are few side effects and contraindication

  26. ACE inhibitors in hypertension • A particulary attractive combination is that with diuretics, because diuretics increase circulating renin activity and angiotensin II levels, wich ACEI counterregulate by inhibiting the conversion of angiotensin I to angiotensin II.

  27. Role of ARB in the treatment of cardiovascular diseases, with a special reference to LOSARTAN

  28. Arguments favoring development of ARBs • ACE inhibitors are not specific • ACE inhibitors do not provide • complete blockade of RAS • Alternative pathways for angiotensin • II formation • Significant incidence of cough

  29. Arguments favoring development of ARBs • ACE inhibitors are not specific • ACE inhibitors do not provide • complete blockade of RAS • Alternative pathways for angiotensin • II formation • Significant incidence of cough

  32. Inhibition of the RAS • ARBs directly block the angiotensin II receptor (AT1), thereby largely avoiding the side effects of excess bradykinin such as cough and angioedema.
