Book Description :

The investigation and treatment of hypertension remains a challenge, even in developed countries. Although antihypertensives have been available for 50 years, the rational and effective use of the myriad of existing drugs remains a concern, as does the desire to identify patients with secondary hypertension from the mass of individuals with primary or essential hypertension. The aim of this handbook is to provide state-of-the-art informationconcerning the pathophysiology, diagnosis, investigation and management of hypertension in the 21st century. It is designed to appeal to practicing clinicians, both generalist and specialist. The chapters are clearly laid-out and written for the non-expert but contain sufficient detail to serve as auseful reference for the experienced physician. The book is completely up-to-date and evidence-based, while the authors are recognized experts in hypertension based at one of Europe's leading hypertension centres.

Book Description :

Advances in our knowledge of the pathogenesis and management of portal hypertension and its complications over the last 2 decades have been astronomical. However, most of the management strategies remain palliative and serves as a bridge to liver transplantation. Despite the availability of a number of books in the field of hepatology, portal hypertension as the main life-threatening complication needs a dedicated book to link between recent advances in research and current clinical practice. This book includes dedicated chapters on gastric varices management, ectopic varices management, sinusoidal obstruction syndrome, portal hypertensive bilopathy, portal hypertension as a risk factor in nonhepatic abdominal surgery, idiopathic portal hypertension, and portal hypertension in pregnancy. As all other chapters, they represent updates on the recent advances and were written by well-known experts in such areas. It also includes a self-assessment section for evaluation of the level benefit obtained from reading this book. Many illustrations, tables, lists, algorithms, figures, and colour plates are included to serve the educational purpose of this book.

Book Description :

Hypertension is a major cause of cerebral accidents, cardiac disease and renal failure. Essential or secondary hypertension occur in between 15-20 per cent of the population. The leading risk factors are family history, race, stress, obesity, a high intake of saturate fats or sodium, tobacco use, sedentary lifestyle, and aging. It may also be caused by other diseases, medical events, or taking of drugs of a wide variety. Most cases of hypertension are treatable although prolonged elevated blood pressure can lead to severe consequences including death. This new book gathers leading research from around the world on the etiology, pathogenesis, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of this widespread disease.

Nutritional intervention, cholesterol lowering agents, lipidsthemselves, particularly oxidized LDL, protein modification byADP-ribose, bone marrow study, endothelial cell dysfunction, angiotensin, and the role of infection and inflammation are alldiscussed in the context of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease.The hypertension section focuses on factors that may be responsiblefor high blood pressure, such as genetic predisposition, vascularhyperplasia and remodeling, insulin resistance, neurological aspectssuch as hypothalamic peptides. Also discussed are the possiblecontributions of the cellular function of the endothelium, nutrition, kidney dysfunction, leptin, and the brain. Novel routes of drugdelivery for treatment of hypertension is also a focus.As for diabetes, the risk factors and mechanisms responsible fordiabetic vascular and cardiac dysfunction are discussed. Lipid profilechanges and fibrinolysis in diabetic patients is detailed, along withadipogenesis, diabetic cardiomyopathy, energy metabolism in thediabetic heart, vanadate as an alternative to insulin, insulinresistance mechanisms, and neurotransmitters as targets for theprevention of cardiovascular disease and diabetes.These manuscripts were invited from scientists who presented state ofthe art lectures at the XVII World Congress of the InternationalSociety for Heart Research held in Winnipeg in July 2001.

Written by established researchers, this two-volume publication provides timely, comprehensive and insightful reviews on recent discoveries in the etiology of hypertension. Structural changes of the blood vessels in hypertension in relation to connective tissue, cerebral vessel structure and innervation, smooth muscle cell hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia, and rarefaction of microvessels are discussed. Also presented are the effects of antihypertensive therapy on vessel structure and function. A unique feature is the inclusion of a chapter on pulmonary vascular changes in pulmonary hypertension, which shows certain changes that are similar to systemic hypertension. This book is of major interest to researchers involved in the study of hypertension and the biology of the blood vessels.

Book Description :

Understanding and treating hypertension has progressed significantly during the past 40 to 50 years. This progress has made a major contribution to health care concerns such as quality of life, prevention of disability, and mortality. In the past, hypertension and hypertensive disease had been a "silent scourge," but it is presently an industry. Research on hypertension has expanded into a variety of fields including epidemiology, endocrinology, surgery, pharmacology, and behavioral medicine. Therapeutic accomplishments have made hypertension a leading source of income for the pharmaceutical industry; the field of clinical pharmacology originated with the development of drugs to treat hypertension. Increasingly, specific drugs to treat specific mechanisms which raise blood pressure have moved from the laboratory to the bedside. A constant awareness has been present that emotional stress, both from within the individual as well as from environmental sources, plays a role in the "three Ps" -- predisposition, precipitation, and perpetuation -- of hypertension. Arguments range from stating that such stress may be the major cause of at least some forms of hypertension, to allowing that although some effect is present from stress, it is only a minor perturbation of no significance in the overall pattern of the disease. Advocates of stress theory may be biased by a lack of detailed knowledge or experience with the physiology and biochemistry involved in the establishment of this disorder. On the other hand, those who deny the importance of stress factors may be unaware of the large body of data that indicate the role of these factors in any comprehensive understanding of hypertension. Following the Mosaic Theory, this book's approach to hypertension shows that multiple factors can be invoked in understanding the etiology and management of hypertension, where the strength of individual factors vary depending on genetic background, acquired diseases, and environmental influences. Stress can be involved in predisposition by affecting a genetically programmed person, in precipitation by supplying the stimulus to bring the disease to a clinical level, and in perpetuation by maintaining or exacerbating the clinical disease. This volume attempts to integrate what is known about the effects of stress on blood pressure with the overall mosaic of hypertension making use of the aforementioned "three Ps" as part of the framework for this integration.
