This volume takes a fresh look at a range of hypertension topics that are of primary interest to the clinical nephrologist. The book includes balanced reviews on the clinical physiology of endothelin and nitric oxide and the role of these substances in primary and secondary hypertension. Some still unsolved problems in the diagnosis and treatment of renovascular hypertension and renal ischemia are reexamined in light of the latest results from ongoing studies. The problem of 'renal risk' in essential hypertension is addressed mainly in terms of early prediction and the importance of microalbuminuria and glomerular hyperfiltration is thoroughly discussed. Finally, the increased cardiovascular risk and hemodynamic instability in patients undergoing dialysis are reevaluated on the basis of the most recent studies.
