Critical Evaluation of Basic Mechanisms of Primary Hypertension
The round-table discussion was held to evaluate critically the significance of the pathogenetic mechanisms presented during the preceding session. It afforded opportunity to identify areas of consensus or controversy and reflected the progress of current research in hypertension. The fact emerged clearly from the discussion that an understanding of the basic mechansims of cardiovascular control and of the patho-genesis of hypertension is important for the rational application of the available anti-hypertensive therapies and for the design of new modes of treatment. The following summary covers the main topics dealt with during the last six contributions and the new aspects arising at the round table.
