This monograph provides a timely update on the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy of renovascular and renal parenchymatous hypertension. The underlying causes of the most common forms of hypertension are discussed in separate chapters. Special emphasis is laid on newer pathophysiological aspects of the disease, in particular the vascular wall renin-angiotensin system. Furthermore, there is in depth discussion of all the new techniques that are currently available for use in the diagnosis of renal hypertension, e.g., ultrasound and Doppler techniques, magnetic resonance imaging, and nuclear renography. These techniques are discussed by internationally renowned experts in the field. The book also covers topics such as the value of medical therapy, surgical techniques, and percutaneous transluminal angioplasty, with special reference to the treatment of renal hypertension.
