Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The diagnosis and management of secondary hypertension has improved in the last decade as a result of the advances in the acknowledgment of some physiopathologic mechanisms and mainly by the development of new diagnostic methods. Furthermore, the treatment of some types of secondary hypertension may be solved by noninvasive techniques. Hypertension of renal and renovascular origin, coarctation of the aorta, primary hyperaldosteronism, and adrenal medullary tumors are analyzed. The main results of some relevant studies on diagnostic and treatment of those diseases are presented. Also, some experimental methods are mentioned, taking into account the possibility of clinical use in the near future.
