Clinical Principles A clearer understanding of the pathogenesis of hypertension will probably lead to more highly targeted therapies and to greater reduction in hypertension-related cardiovascular disease morbidity than can be achieved with current empirical treatment. Physiologic Principles More than 90% of cases of hypertension do not have a clear cause. Hypertension clusters in families and results from a complex interaction of genetic and environmental factors. The hypertension-related… Expand

Salt and Hypertension Hypothesis - Still Relevant
TLDR
The traditional view emphasized the centrality of the kidney and its malfunction in the development of hypertension, but the hypothesis that renal salt handling plays a role in hypertension has also been supported by studies which show that genetic mutations affect blood pressure in Mendelian or monogenic forms of human hypertension and hypotension. Expand
Apparent treatment-resistant hypertension and chronic kidney disease: another cardiovascular-renal syndrome?
To identify patients at increased risk of cardiovascular (CV) outcomes, apparent treatment-resistant hypertension (aTRH) is defined as having a blood pressure above goal despite the use of 3 or moreExpand
Resistant hypertension, secondary hypertension, and hypertensive crises: diagnostic evaluation and treatment.
TLDR
Mineralocorticoid receptor antagonists are formidable add-on agents to the antihypertensive regimen, usually as a fourth drug, and are effective in reducing BP even in patients without biochemical evidence of aldosterone excess. Expand
Hypertension and Atherosclerosis: Pathophysiology, Mechanisms and Benefits of BP Control
TLDR
As emerging countries have improved sanitation and other basic public health measures, cardiovascular (CV) disease has or soon will become the most common cause of death, and hypertension will be its most common reversible risk factor, as it already is in the United States. Expand
Pharmacogenetics of Essential Hypertension
TLDR
In the current review, genetic association of blood pressure lowering response to different drug classes of antihypertensive therapy in different ethnic populations is reviewed. Expand
Hypertension and Exercise Training: Evidence from Clinical Studies.
TLDR
This chapter will describe the classical and recent results on the beneficial effects of different modalities of exercise training in the cardiovascular system of human primary hypertension, focusing on the mechanisms influenced by exercise training which help to decrease blood pressure and improve the cardiovascularsystem. Expand
The Difference of Endothelin-1 Levels in Hypertension Stage 1 , 2 and Non Hypertension Person
Hypertension is a risk factor of cardiovascular disease. Endothelin-1 is a strong vasoconstrictor and related with angiotensin II in the arteria pressure regulation. This regulation influence inExpand
Multiple Biomarkers and the Risk of Incident Hypertension
TLDR
Biomarkers of inflammation, reduced fibrinolytic potential, and low-grade albuminuria are jointly associated with the incidence of hypertension, and the premise that abnormalities in multiple biological pathways antedate the onset of overt hypertension is supported. Expand
Exercise and Blood Pressure Control in Hypertension
TLDR
This chapter presents the pathophysiology, prevalence, and incidence of hypertension, and discusses new and emerging research on the effects of acute and chronic exercise on BP that has the potential to alter the way in which aerobic exercise is prescribed to prevent, treat, and control hypertension in the future. Expand
Hypertension as a hemodynamic disease: the role of impedance cardiography in diagnostic, prognostic, and therapeutic decision making.
TLDR
Measurement of the various hemodynamic components using ICG in those with hypertension allows more complete characterization of the condition, a greater ability to identify those at highest risk, and allows more effectively targeted drug management. Expand

TLDR
This review of current concepts regarding the definition, etiology, and treatment of essential hypertension is intended to aid the clinician in identifying those individuals at high risk who need to undergo evaluation and treatment, as well as in selecting optimal treatment strategies for hypertensive patients with comorbid conditions and/or target organ damage.

  • Medicine
  • Current opinion in nephrology and hypertension

TLDR
Current evidence does not support the rational expectation that vasculoprotective antihypertensive agents will be associated with better outcomes in hypertensive patients, possibly because of limitations of these trials. Expand

TLDR
High sympathetic tone explains the pathophysiology of "pressure-independent" risk for premature coronary atherosclerosis in hypertension and for excess mortality/morbidity in patients who had already developed coronary heart disease. Expand

TLDR
To find new genes, novel approaches will be necessary, including searching for quantitative trait loci linked to blood pressure in normotensive persons, haplotype sharing methodology in trios and family units, the use of better study designs, and the investigation of isolated populations. Expand
Hypertension and associated metabolic abnormalities--the role of insulin resistance and the sympathoadrenal system.
TLDR
It is hypothesized that the metabolic abnormalities linked to the hypertension by a pathophysiologic process that involves the sympathoadrenal system and exerts influence on blood pressure and complications in many patients. Expand
Characteristics of patients with uncontrolled hypertension in the United States.
TLDR
Most cases of uncontrolled hypertension in the United States consist of isolated, mild systolic hypertension in older adults, most of whom have access to health care and relatively frequent contact with physicians. Expand

  • Medicine
  • Current hypertension reports

TLDR
It is shown that the available evidence points to important roles for blood flow and growth factors, in addition to blood pressure, as causes of resistance artery remodeling, and the relationship between vascular structure and blood pressure is discussed. Expand
Molecular basis of human hypertension: Role of angiotensinogen
TLDR
Evidence of genetic linkage between the angiotensinogen gene (AGT) and hypertension is obtained, association of AGT molecular variants with the disease is demonstrated, and significant differences in plasma concentrations of angiotENSinogen among hypertensive subjects with different AGT genotypes are found.
