The role of central pressor mechanisms in the maintenance of blood pressure in six hypertensive patients with angiographically proven unilateral renal artery stenosis was investigated by studying the haemodynamic and hormonal responses before and after central sympathetic blockade with clonidine. To assess the dependency of blood pressure on the direct effects of angiotensin II, the same patients were studied on a separate occasion after administration of the angiotensin converting enzyme (ACE… 

Role of Sympathetic Efferent Nerves in Blood Pressure Regulation and in Hypertension

The pathophysiological basis of altered cardiovascular control in these various disorders along with the effects of drugs with known mechanisms have advanced understanding of the role in humans of sympathetic efferent nerves in blood pressure regulation and in hypertension.

Neurogenic aspects of blood pressure control in man — with an emphasis on renovascular hypertension

Some of the approaches which have broadened the concepts on neurogenic control of blood pressure are outlined and the application of some of these to patients with reno-vascular hypertension is described.

Effects of Clonidine on the Cardiovascular, Renal, and Inflammatory Responses to Experimental Bacteremia

In hyperdynamic, hypotensive sepsis, the effects of clonidine at clinically relevant doses are complex and dose dependent.

The relief of renal artery obstruction has been shown to improve an in many cases cure renovascular hypertensin (RVH). However, despite recent advances in renal revascularization and transluminal
