    Pulmonary hypertension is a pathophysiologic condition with many possible causes. Indeed, this condition frequently accompanies severe heart or lung conditions. A World Health Organization meeting was the first attempted to classify pulmonary hypertension by its cause, and a distinction was made between primary PH (resulting from a disease of the pulmonary arteries. Pulmonary arterial hypertension is usually sporadic, which means it occurs in individuals with no known family history of the disorder. These non-familial cases are described as idiopathic pulmonary arterial 20 percent of these cases are caused by mutations in one of the genes known to be associated with the disease, but most of the time a causative .

    Description: High pressure in the lungs, or pulmonary hypertension, is most commonly due to smoking-related lung disease and conditions affecting the left heart, for example, high blood pressure in the arteries, faulty heart valves, and a weakened heart muscle. Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH), is a rare and complex disease, associated. Epidemiology of Hypertension and CAD. Hypertension is a major independent risk factor for CAD for all age/race/sex groups. The Seventh Report of the Joint National Committee on Prevention, Detection, Evaluation, and Treatment of High Blood Pressure 3 uses the traditional definition of hypertension as an SBP of ≥ mm Hg or a DBP of ≥90 mm Hg and/or the .

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a class of diseases that involve the heart or blood vessels. CVD includes coronary artery diseases (CAD) such as angina and myocardial infarction (commonly known as a heart attack). Other CVDs include stroke, heart failure, hypertensive heart disease, rheumatic heart disease, cardiomyopathy, abnormal heart rhythms, congenital heart disease, .

Richard Bright in was the first to describe Bright's disease, an inflammatory disease of the kidneys now known as acute glomerular nephritis, which he described as including inflammation and hardening of the kidneys, fullness and hardness of the pulse (hypertension), and albuminuria.

Bright's disease and arterial hypertension. The first half of the book includes a brief historical sketch, classification of Bright's disease, discussion of renal functions and methods of testing these, the water balance of the body, acidosis, uremia, laboratory procedures and pathologic consideration.

Hypertension (HTN or HT), also known as high blood pressure (HBP), is a long-term medical condition in which the blood pressure in the arteries is persistently elevated. High blood pressure typically does not cause symptoms.

Long-term high blood pressure, however, is a major risk factor for coronary artery disease, stroke, heart failure, atrial fibrillation, peripheral arterial disease Specialty: Cardiology.

Descriptions of hypertension as a disease came among others from Thomas Young in and especially Richard Bright in The first report of Brights disease and arterial hypertension book blood pressure in a person without evidence of kidney disease was made by Frederick Akbar Mahomed (–).

The early history of hypertension is not a story of progressive achievement. Richard Bright is given great credit, followed by Mahomed, Allbutt, Riva-Rocci, Bergman and Janeway, but it was not until Volhard, Fahr and Allen that some semblance of order emerged.

Hypertensive heart disease refers to a constellation of changes in the left ventricle, left atrium and coronary arteries as a result of chronic blood pressure elevation. Hypertension increases the workload on the heart inducing structural and functional changes in the myocardium.

These changes include hypertrophy of the left ventricle, which can progress. In Lower Extremity Arterial Disease, leaders in the fields of cardiovascular medicine, hypertension, vascular surgery, vascular radiology, and vascular physiology join forces to comprehensively review the state-of-the-art concerning atherosclerosis of the arteries of the legs and feet.

The authors discuss in detail LEAD's primary symptom. Arterial hypertension is a major cause of morbidity and mortality because of its association with coronary heart disease, cerebrovascular disease and renal disease.

hypertension or high blood pressure, elevated blood pressure resulting from an increase in the amount of blood pumped by the heart or from increased resistance to the flow of blood through the small arterial blood vessels (arterioles).

Hypertension was generally defined as a blood pressure reading of over 90 or higher, but new guidelines issued in define hypertension.

; (9 Suppl):S35–S The modern history of hypertension begins with the understanding of the cardiovascular system based on the work of physician William Harvey (–), who described the circulation of blood in his book De motu English clergyman Stephen Hales made the first published measurement of blood pressure in Descriptions of what would come to be called hypertension.

Hypertension remains the leading cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide and significantly impacts the risk of all major cardiovascular events, including stroke, sudden cardiac death, coronary heart disease, heart failure, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral vascular disease.

Important advances in our understanding of its pathophysiology contributed to. Pulmonary hypertension plays an increasingly important role in contemporary medicine. It may present as discrete disease or as complication of a broad spectrum of other conditions, such as connective tissue disease, congenital heart disease, liver disease, lung disease or left heart disease.

All of these forms have different features and their management is never the same. Hypertension is commonly observed in patients with kidney disease and can be both a contributor to and result of disease progression.

Vascular lesions (e.g., arteriolosclerosis, striped pattern of interstitial fibrosis and tubular atrophy) are often associated with hypertension, supporting that decreasing the blood pressure in these patients.

R.M. Mortensen, in Pathobiology of Human Disease, Introduction.

Hypertension is defined as an abnormally high blood pressure (BP) and is one of the most important risk factors for cardiovascular disease and death. The limits that define hypertension are chosen to reflect the risk for disease related to the elevated BP although risk increases even within the ‘normal’ BP.

Divided into two sections, the first part provides and update on general issues and introduces both interstitial lung disease and associated pulmonary hypertension. A detailed analysis of the pathology of the various interstitial lung diseases is also provided.

The second part addresses specific categories of : Hardcover. Hypertrophy of the myocardium is revealed in % of children and adolescents with arterial hypertension.

About 55% of adolescents with arterial hypertension have an LVDM index above the 90th percentile, and 14% exceed 51 g / m Arterial hypertension is associated with the process of myocardial remodeling. Topics that are being included in this book are the genetic and physiological aspects of hypertension.

Various approaches to controlling high blood pressure and sustain normal blood pressure. In a nutshell, this book is for every medico out there. Table of Contents: Chapter 1 Physiological and Genetic Mechanisms of Arterial Hypertension.
