Clinical Pharmacology and Therapeutics of Hypertension

G. T. McInnes


pagine: 608

This volume reviews comprehensively the present understanding of the clinical pharmacology and therapeutics of currently available antihypertensive agents. As fewer new molecules are entering development, it becomes increasingly important to utilise existing drugs in a way that exploits their full potential through a greater understanding of their molecular biology and pharmacogenomics.

Essential Hypertension and Its Causes

Neural and Non-neural Mechanisms

Paul I. Korner

editore: Oxford University Press Inc

pagine: 720

Essential hypertension (EH) is the most common type of high blood pressure and is responsible for much death and serious illness, which has been the reason for the huge research effort to determine its causes. However, countless scientific articles still keep proclaiming that "the causes of essential hypertension remain unknown." In view of the number of publications that descend on the hypertension specialist like a waterfall, such proclamations seem to overlook the considerable amount of knowledge that we already have about the etiology of EH. The problem may be a lack of synthesis rather than a lack of information. This book provides a unique synthesis of the pathophysiology of essential hypertension (EH), which is limited through the brain and is critically dependent on both genetic and environmental factors such as stress, high salt intake and obesity. Korner analyses the mechanisms by which the various factors raise blood pressure and the pathophysiology of EH compared with that in renal hypertension and in some of the rat models of genetic hypertension. In some individuals stress-induced vasoconstriction enhances the brain's responsiveness to salt, giving rise to stress-and-salt-related EH. In others, stress-induced EH promotes eating, causing hypertensive obesity. Improving lifestyle through regular exercise and reduction of salt and calorie intake directly antagonises the environmental causes of EH, and has implications for prevenion and treatment.

Genetics of Hypertension

Anna Dominiczak, John Connell

editore: Elsevier Science Ltd

pagine: 283

Classic and modern tools of genetics have been applied to hypertension research for some 20 years. This volume in the "Handbook of Hypertension" series aims to go beyond a simple summary of discoveries and provides a critical commentary on many controversial issues. It will be particularly useful for clinician scientists at all stages of their careers, graduate students and post-doctoral scientists as well as all those interested in cardiovascular medicine and research throughout the entire spectrum from bench to bedside. As in every relatively young area of research, the initial excitement over the early positive observations has not always been confirmed by subsequent larger studies with greater statistical power. Issues related to current recommendations on design of studies and their analysis are therefore included. Pharmacogenetics and pharmacogenomics have been the subjects of many debates in recent years and are of particular importance in hypertension as life-long treatments, frequently with multiple drugs are given to millions of people world-wide. A critical appraisal of this controversial topic is provided. Several chapters on experimental genetics of hypertension with a special focus on physiological genomics are also included.

Manuale di misurazione della pressione arteriosa

Franco Veglio, Franco Rabbia
e altri

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 121

L'ipertensione arteriosa è una condizione morbosa molto diffusa nei paesi occidentali e rappresenta il principale fattore di rischio per eventi cardio e cerebrovascolari. La pressione arteriosa è una variabile dinamica e la realtà clinica non consente al medico di effettuare misurazioni dirette, corrispondenti alla continua variabilità di questo parametro emodinamico. Sono tuttavia noti e diffusi molti metodi di misurazione pressoria che consentono al medico, con buona riproducibilità, di valutare l'andamento pressorio del proprio paziente. Ai fini di un corretto inquadramento diagnostico e terapeutico del paziente iperteso è necessario che il medico adotti le corrette manovre di misurazione pressoria.

The Kidney and Hypertension

George L. Bakris

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 256

Hypertension is common in patients with kidney disease for a number of reasons, including retention, inappropriate action by the renin-angiotensin system, and overactivity of the sympathetic nervous system. Of all causes of hypertension, renal artery stenosis (narrowing) has attracted considerable attention, because it was once thought to be a rare cause of hypertension, but is now known to be the most common cause of secondary hypertension. In The Kidney and Hypertension, George Bakris and a host of international contributors examine all aspects of hypertension in the renal patient. A reference book covering specific and common topics in the area of kidney disease and hypertension, it is an essential guide to the effective management of the renovascular patient. It covers everything from how to properly measure blood pressure to the assessment and treatment of elevated blood pressure in high-risk groups such as dialysis patients and pregnant women. Kidney and Hypertension also thoroughly discusses reducing cardiovascular risk in people with kidney disease due to its role as a leading cause of death among kidney patients. Additionally, there is a chapter on diabetes and its role as a common cause of kidney failure. As an introduction to basic concepts in the treatment of hypertension, Dr. Bakris's book will serve as an excellent reference to nephrologists, cardiologists, and cardiovascular surgeons in their efforts to reduce the risks of advanced kidney disease and cardiovascular disease.

Hypertension in Diabetes

Bryan A. Williams

editore: Informa Healthcare

pagine: 304

Diabetes mellitus, particularly non-insulin-dependent diabetes Type 2, is a common disease and, even though insulin has been around for seventy years, this endocrine disorder still reduces the life expectancy of diabetic patients because of the development of long-term complications, including hypertension. Hypertension occurs twice as often in diabetic patients as in non-diabetic ones. The combination of diabetes and hypertension creates a greater risk of coronary artery disease which is the major cause of death in westernized societies. Bryan Williams and his international team of collaborators provide the reader with their views for treatment of diabetes associated with hypertension and the prevention of subsequent coronary artery disease and other disorders.
