Summary

Written by established researchers, this two-volume publication provides timely, comprehensive and insightful reviews on recent discoveries in the etiology of hypertension. Structural changes of the blood vessels in hypertension in relation to connective tissue, cerebral vessel structure and innervation, smooth muscle cell hypertrophy and/or hyperplasia, and rarefaction of microvessels are discussed.
Also presented are the effects of antihypertensive therapy on vessel structure and function. A unique feature is the inclusion of a chapter on pulmonary vascular changes in pulmonary hypertension, which shows certain changes that are similar to systemic hypertension. This book is of major interest to researchers involved in the study of hypertension and the biology of the blood vessels.
