Extensively revised and rewritten, An Atlas of Hypertension, Second Edition updates the acclaimed first edition to include the myriad of advances that have developed in this field. It illustrates the better quality, less invasive methods of imaging the renal arteries along with the advances in interventional radiology that have transformed the investigation and treatment of atherosclerotic vascular disease. It shows how the use of endovascular stents as an adjunct to percutaneous angioplasty has greatly increased the scope of the procedure, especially by allowing treatment of the lesions at the ostia of the renal arteries.

The book covers non-invasive monitoring of blood pressure used in combination with sensitive methods of quantifying left ventricular hypertrophy such as echocardiography and magnetic resonance imaging to identify patients with arterial pressures that require treatment more quickly and with greater accuracy. An Atlas of Hypertension, Second Edition is the definitive clinical reference and review text for cardiologists, cardiovascular surgeons, and all physicians engaged in the treatment of hypertension in both primary and secondary care.
