Renal Hypertension and Vascular Disorders

  • R. B. Brown


Renal parenchymal or vascular disease may result in primary renal hypertension, or non-renal hypertension may so damage the vessels in the kidney that secondary renal hypertension develops (fig. 274). Identification of the cause of renal hypertension is important as occasionally the condition is curable.
