Book Description :

A growing number of people suffer from so-called resistant hypertension, that is to say, high blood pressure that does not respond to treatment. This disorder is of great current interest and importance for public health, being a common clinical problem faced by both primary care clinicians and specialists. Furthermore, as older age and obesity are among the strongest risk factors for uncontrolled hypertension, the incidence of resistant hypertension will likely increase as the population becomes more elderly and heavier. While the prognosis of resistant hypertension is unknown, cardiovascular risk is undoubtedly increased since patients often have a history of long-standing, severe hypertension complicated by multiple other cardiovascular risk factors. This volume, compiled by a panel of world-renowned experts, offers a comprehensive exploration of resistant hypertension, covering epidemiology, complex diagnostic aspects, and the therapeutic options currently available, with due attention to overall treatment strategies. New therapeutic agents and procedures, such as renal denervation and baroreceptor stimulation, are also described. In addition, the book addresses the economic aspects of resistant hypertension and the role of the different professional figures, from GPs to hypertension specialists, in dealing with it.

Book Description :

This book provides a comprehensive overview of secondary hypertension for clinicians, including cardiologists as well as primary training physicians and general practitioners. A large number of patients suffer from high blood pressure, and it was previously thought that secondary hypertension accounted for 10% of all cases. However, according to new studies, the proportion of secondary hypertension is much higher than this. While hypertensive patients are usually treated in the cardiovascular department, secondary hypertension involves diseases in various fields, such as renal, endocrinological, immunological and urological diseases. This book allows readers to gain a thorough understanding of the screening, diagnosis and treatment of secondary hypertension. It first discusses screening strategies for secondary hypertension, including clinical manifestations, general tests and special tests. It then addresses specific aspects of hypertension related to other diseases, like renal parenchymal diseases; transplantation; congenital diseases; endocrine, neurogenic and psychosocial disorders; vascular conditions; sleep apnoea syndrome, connective tissue disease and metabolic-associated hypertension. Lastly, it covers secondary hypertension related to rare heredity conditions.

Book Description :

This monograph was developed from a collection of papers that were origi nally presented at a symposium entitled "Pathogenesis of Hypertension" held at the Henry Chauncy Conference Center, Princeton. New Jersey. These manuscripts were subsequently revised, updated, and reorganized in a manner suitable for this publication. The symposium was planned to stimu late interest among investigators and clinicians alike in the potential for a new class of drugs called converting enzyme inhibitors in clinical medicine. The meeting was sponsored by the Squibb Institute for Medical Research, whose pioneering biochemical and pharmaceutical research had led to the development of the first orally active converting enzyme inhibitor. It is hoped that this monograph will cohesively pull together the thesis that the identification, quantification, and containment of the renin factor in hypertension can be a powerful diagnostic and therapeutic strategy in clinical medicine. In addition, the sequence of studies presented in this manuscript will serve to demonstrate how basic biochemical and physio logical research produces fundamental and critical information on which subsequent major advances in clinical pharmacology and medicine can be based.

Book Description :

Some of the leading scientists in the field of hypertension accepted an invi tation to actively participate in an international symposium on primary hypertension. Scientists from 13 countries - from western, southern, and eastern Europe, Australia, and the United States - were present. The meeting was held in Cologne in March 1985. After previous meetings and workshops at Titisee in the Black Forest and several symposia on the renin angiotensin-aldosterone system here in Cologne, this symposium on prima ry hypertension was organized in order to induce and to stimulate critical discussion on the basic pathogenetic mechanisms involved and the recently established therapeutic implications. Numerous studies have been based on the concept that the elevation in blood pressure is mediated by several vasopressor substances. For this reason the renin-angiotensin system has been considered to be the essential endocrine mechanism involved in developing and sustaining arterial hyper tension. Other vasopressor factors, such as catecholamines, vasopressin, and serotonin, have been studied extensively and were assumed to play additional parts in blood pressure regulation. However, several other ap proaches have been initiated in recent years.

A PIONEERING APPROACH TO OVERCOMING HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE If you are one of the millions of people diagnosed with high blood pressure, this groundbreaking book can change your life. Unique in combining a medical and a psychological approach, Samuel J. Mann, M.D., explains: How you can tell whether or not your high blood pressure is related to emotions How to find the medication best suited for you, and when to reduce or eliminate unnecessary medication How exploring "hidden" or repressed emotions can reduce your blood pressure and the need for medication Featuring compelling and instructive case histories as well as the latest medical research, Healing Hypertension can help you make sense of your high blood pressure while offering new choices for controlling it. "In Healing Hypertension, Dr. Samuel Mann pushes the boundaries of medicine by demonstrating the emotional components of hypertension, one of the most serious health problems of our day. Healing Hypertension shows that it is not enough to attend to our physical bodies; we must look to our emotional life as well if we expect to be healthy and whole. This is an immensely important book." -Larry Dossey, M.D., A Author of Healing Words and Reinventing Medicine
