  • Renovascular hypertension is a type of secondary hypertension that corresponds to 5–10% of hypertensive patients and is considered a severe but treatable form of the disease [1]. Regarding its pathophysiology, the classical studies performed by Goldblatt et al. [2] in the 1930s demonstrated that a reduction in kidney perfusion led to sustained elevation of arterial pressure. A few decades later, elevation of the circulating angiotensin II (ANG II) level was suggested as the main mechanism… CONTINUE READING
