Laragh's Lessons in Renin System Pathophysiology for Treating Hypertension and Its Fatal Cardiovascular Consequences
Here's an essential reference for anyone needing an advanced understanding of the nature and treatment of hypertension. Dr. Laragh, a pioneering clinician and scientist, demonstrates the central role of an overactive renin system for causing most hypertension. In his new book, Dr. Laragh discusses his research and its relevance to caring for everything from asymptomatic patients to hypertensive emergencies. And, he provides visit-by-visit details of his new pathophysiologically and biochemically guided treatment. The result of his work is a specific approach that makes it possible to more effectively prevent, arrest, and treat hypertension and its consequences--including congestive heart failure, myocardial infarction, kidney failure and stroke.
