Despite recent advances in healthcare, hypertension is a leading cause of death and remains a disease burden worldwide. Now in its second edition, the Manual of Hypertension of the European Society of Hypertension reflects emerging concepts that have the potential to impact diagnostic and therapeutic approaches to this condition. Updating all material, this new edition also delves into a number of areas that have received heightened interest in recent years or have become a matter of debate due to the controversial interpretation of the available data.
Each topic is addressed in a format that will be of interest not only to investigators and students who conduct studies on hypertension and its cardiovascular and renal complications, but also to clinicians needing in-depth information on diagnostic and therapeutic aspects. The book is an essential guide to all facets of this debilitating condition that remains a threat to public health.
