About this book

This book aims to describe the role of interventional therapies in various forms of secondary hypertension and to explain the ability of such approaches to address unmet needs in the setting of uncontrolled essential hypertension. The coverage encompasses interventions in the full range of relevant conditions, including the various specific pathologies responsible for secondary hypertension, such as renal artery stenosis, coarctation of the aorta, and adrenal tumors. In each case, up-to-date information is presented on indications, procedural aspects, and patient follow-up. A further focus is the most recent knowledge on the use of invasive neuromodulation, such as renal sympathetic denervation and baroreflex stimulation. The text is supplemented by helpful explanatory diagrams and treatment algorithms. A comprehensive clinical guide of this nature has to date been absent from the literature. The book will be of interest to clinicians managing hypertensive patients, researchers investigating advanced hypertension management, and students on cardiovascular courses.

Reviews

“An overview of the role of interventional therapies in the treatment of hypertension, this book includes sections for both essential and secondary hypertension and discusses adjunctive therapies. The purpose is to provide trainees and clinicians with an overview of interventional therapies in the treatment of essential and secondary hypertension. This book will be most helpful for clinicians and trainees in the fields of cardiology, family practice, and internal medicine.” (Jennifer A. Davis, Doody's Book Reviews, December, 2016)
