[Treatment concepts in therapy refractory hypertension].


Although inadequate lowering of elevated blood pressure is not unusual in the doctor's office, both physician and patient accept such a situation. One reason for this therapeutic failure may be either a true or an apparent therapy-resistance, with the latter being far the more common of the two, and often associated with a multiplicity of causes. Since cerebral complications in particular correlate directly with the level of blood pressure, a search for the underlying cause is always worthwhile for the patient.
