Abstract/OtherAbstract:
1. Various theories on the origin and development of hypertension offered over the years have been assessed critically. 2. It is concluded that no one theory is adequate at the present time to encompass all the known facts. 3. Continuously expanded understanding of hypertensive mechanisms, however, help in the individualization and therefore the improvement of various modalities of therapy, including treatment with presently available agents, as well as with those which may be developed in the future.
