    The discovery of two forms of secondary hypertension in the same patient is unusual and suggests similar pathophysiological mechanisms, a predisposition to one type in the presence of the other or a chance occurrence. We describe two patients with renal artery stenosis who after successful...

This finding is in agreement with a better response to diuretics than to monotherapy with angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor in black subjects. It is...

    BackgroundUndefined pathophysiologic mechanisms likely contribute to unsuccessful antihypertensive drug therapy. The renin test–guided therapeutic (RTGT) algorithm is based on the concept that, irrespective of current drug treatments, subnormal plasma renin activity (PRA) (<0.65 ng/ml/h)...

    Background: In autonomic failure (AF), supine hypertension may predispose patients to end-organ damage. The pathophysiology of hypertensive heart disease in AF is not known. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence and predisposing factors of left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH)...

    The complexity of pathophysiologic mechanisms that lead to blood pressure elevation is such that selective, mechanistically based antihypertensive treatment is rarely possible in any hypertensive patient. Hypertension is highly prevalent among middle-aged and elderly persons, and the success...
