- When herding hypertensives, treat them all like horses, not zebras. Shepherd, Sandra; Cadwallader, Kara; Jankoswki, Terry Ann // Journal of Family Practice;Sep2005, Vol. 54 Issue 9, p813
This article examines the treatment of hypertension. There are patients who benefit from physicians looking for and treating renovascular hypertension. A very few patients benefit by needing fewer drugs, while a few are harmed by complications of revascularization. No benefit in overall...
- An Unusual Case of Reno-vascular Hypertension with Multiple Arterial Stenosis. Gavrilescu, S.; Streian, C.; Gavrilescu, M. // Angiology;Feb1976, Vol. 27 Issue 2, p122
A case of juvenile reno-vascular hypertension is presented. Extensive involvement of aorta and its branches was found. The possible inflammatory or congenital origin of the arterial lesion is discussed.

Comments on the case of a 29-year-old white female with renovascular hypertension. Presentation of the woman with intermittent dizziness and elevated blood pressure; Effect of transluminal renal angioplasty on the patient; Reason why the initial renin values were nondiagnostic.
- Treatment of renovascular hypertension: One year results of renal angioplasty. Jensen, Gert; Zachrisson, Bo-F.; Delin, Krister; Volkmann, Reinhard; Aurell, Mattias // Kidney International;Dec1995, Vol. 48 Issue 6, p1936
During the ten year period from 1981 to 1991, percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) was performed in 180 renal arteries in 137 patients, where the underlying renovascular disease was fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) in 30 patients (22%) and arteriosclerotic vascular disease (AVD) in...
- Report of a case with surprising etiology of renovascular hypertension. Zumrutdal, A.; Tercan, F.; Oguzkurt, L.; Sezer, S.; Ozdemir, F. Nurhan // Clinical Nephrology;2005, Vol. 64 Issue 6, p444
Takayasu arteritis is a chronic, idiopathic, inflammatory disease that primarily affects large vessels, such as the aorta and its main branches. Epidemiologically, it is found mostly in female patients and is more prevalent in Asian and Latin American countries. Disease may be heterogeneous in...
- Use of SQ 20881 Converting Enzyme Inhibitor in Predicting Response to Surgery in Renovascular Hypertension. Rosenthal, T.; Stern, N.; Rubinstein, Z.; Morag, B.; Adar, R. // Angiology;Jan1982, Vol. 33 Issue 1, p11
This article cites a study on the use of SQ 20881, a synthetic nonapeptide, as a prognostic tool for evaluating the potential surgical curability of renovascular hypertension. The excellent correlation number between the pre-operative response to SQ 20881 and the surgical result is extremely...
- Risk Factors And Other Fallacies. // Health & Stress;2003, Issue 7, p2
Focuses on the risk factors and other information about hypertension. Removal of the cause rather than its manifestations or markers; Highest mortality rates in hypertensives treated with diuretics.
- Prevalence and Implications of Uncontrolled Systolic Hypertension. Kannel, William B. // Drugs & Aging;2003, Vol. 20 Issue 4, p277
Risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) increases incrementally with blood pressure, even within the high-normal range. In the general population, 27% of CVD in women and 37% in men is attributable to hypertension. A high percentage of these hypertension-related events occur in those with...
- How High BP Causes a Stroke. FETTERS, K. ALEISHA // Men's Health;Jun2014, Vol. 29 Issue 5, p24
The article discusses the way hypertension can cause stroke among young people, which starts when high blood pressure forces arteries to stretch more than its capacity and could possibly end with brain cells starting to die due to the absence of oxygen.
