Interventional Therapies for Secondary and Essential Hypertension (Hardcover)
about this item
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.
