Conference paper


Several reports of neonatal hypertension, once regarded as a rarity, have been published (Bauer et al. 1975; Plummer et al. 1976; Adelman 1978). With the availability of accurate instruments for measurement, blood pressure monitoring in newborns has become routine. Furthermore, with the introduction of indwelling umbilical artery catheters, the incidence of hypertension due to renal artery thrombosis has risen sharply.
