About this book


This book reviews the recent advances in understanding the pathophysiology and the fundamental diagnostic, clinical, and therapeutic aspects of arterial hypertension. It collates and updates the knowledge in this area and focuses on how to approach a patient with hypertension and cardiovascular disease.

There is an overall emphasis on the deleterious consequences that hypertension has on the cardiovascular system, since hypertension often coexists with heart disease, arrhythmia and dyslipidemia, further increasing total cardiovascular risk. Each chapter adopts a concise approach to its topic and can therefore also be read as a standalone article.

Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease is a valuable text for scientists engaged in this complex field. It further serves to inspire young physicians, and emphasizes the need for scientific rigor to be applied to patient care as well as research.
