About this book


Our knowledge of secondary hypertension has grown significantly in recent years with the introduction of new diagnostic tools, biochemical tests, and drugs. In Secondary Hypertension: Clinical Presentation, Diagnosis, and Treatment, world-renowned researchers and clinicians critically evaluate and summarize the latest ideas about the screening, diagnosis, and medical/surgical treatment of secondary hypertension in adults and children. Drawing on a variety of medical disciplines-including nephrology, endocrinology, internal medicine, and pediatrics-the book's authors review the critical scenarios that should prompt a search for secondary forms of hypertension and discuss appropriate testing for these uncommon disorders. Additional coverage is given to exogenous or such less-appreciated causes of secondary hypertension as obstructive sleep apnea, primary aldosteronism, renovascular hypertension, and the effects of noncardiac drugs.
Comprehensive and up-to-date, Secondary Hypertension: Clinical Presentation, Diagnosis, and Treatment is an indispensable guide for physicians seeking the special knowledge and expertise needed to diagnose and treat the many varieties of secondary hypertension in adults and children.
