ISBNIn contrast to these advances in therapy, our understanding of the basic mechanisms responsible for the pathogenesis of hypertension remains incomplete. Recent studies have produced new insights into the nature of the regulation of muscle contraction in both heart and blood vessels as well as the changes in muscle function that occur in.

The major advances in pharmacologic treatment of hypertension are (1) the vasodilator-β-blocker combination, (2) the classification of "essential" hypertensives into renin subgroups, 5 and (3) treatment with antihypertensive agents that have been approved by the FDA in recent years.

These include propranolol hydrochloride (Inderal) clonidine hydrochloride (Catapres), diazoxide (Hyperstat. Abstract. Essential hypertension was so named by Frank in 1 and termed hypertensive cardiovascular disease by Janeway in 2 There is evidence that the disease existed in ancient times.

“Hard and bounding pulse” is described variously as an important manifestation of disease in the ancient systems of medicine in China and India; bloodletting was recommended as therapy to lower.

In a recent study, uncontrolled hypertension was found in % of patients, but only % were resistant hypertensives. Patients with resistant hypertension are likely to benefit from evaluation by a hypertension team to assure proper patient identification, diagnostic work-up.

October 5, The American Journal of Medicine NEW CONCEPTS IN HYPERTENSION THERAPY SYMPOSIUM-HOLLENBERG Multiple lines of evidence now suggest that vasocon­striction-a functional disturbance-plays a role in the abnormality of renal perfusion and glomerular filtration rate in patients with essential hypertension.

Pulmonary hypertension is the end-result of a multitude of processes, which are classified into five major categories ().This review will focus primarily on advanced therapy for pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), which can occur as an idiopathic illness (IPAH), formerly primary pulmonary hypertension, or in association with other disorders ().

Hypertension may, thus, serve as a biomarker of efficacy of VEGFI therapy, and indeed, studies have demonstrated better outcomes for patients with cancer who develop hypertension with VEGFI treatment.

Advances in genetics and the ability to identify the mutations that result in heritable pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) have pinpointed the target mechanisms for new therapies.

This is not “controlling the pathophysiological abnormalities” but introducing therapies that may reverse the structural abnormalities of the disease.

Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension. Advances in Pulmonary Hypertension is PHA’s quarterly medical journal, directed by an editorial board of renowned experts with the oversight of PHA’s Scientific Leadership Council.

Its mission is to help physicians in their clinical decision-making by informing them of important trends affecting their practice and providing an analysis of the impact of.

The current treatment of essential hypertension is based on the following concepts: (1) a single cause has not been identified. Indeed, essential hypertension appears to be a multifactorial disorder. Specific therapy, therefore, is not possible;1 (2) the homeostatic mechanisms that regulate blood pressure are intact in hypertensive subjects and responsive to physiologic and chemical interventions.

A rationale approach to combination therapy in hypertension is the selection of antihypertensive drugs that have complementary mechanisms of action, for example, combining an agent targeting the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) with a diuretic and.

Journals & Books; Help This would point to two different mechanisms by which captopril causes angioneurotic edema, one as an idiosyncratic reaction and one that is dose-related.

Summary. Pulmonary arterial hypertension complicating systemic sclerosis occurs commonly and portends a poor prognosis. However, recent advances in our understanding of the disease in the context of systemic sclerosis may lead to novel diagnostic and therapeutic strategies that will ultimately improve quality of life and survival in this population.

Various mechanisms for salt-dependent hypertension have been put forward including volume expansion, modified renal functions and disorders in sodium balance, impaired reaction of the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone-system and the associated receptors, central stimulation of the activity of the sympathetic nervous system, and possibly also.
