Abstract

Optimization of the care of the hypertensive patient will require not only attention to the regulation of arterial pressure but also to blunting the hypertension-related processes that lead to vascular disease. It is clear that the regulation of these processes is much more complex than previously understood. Here several new insights into the pathogenesis of hypertension-related vascular disease are explored with an emphasis on the role played by the renin-angiotensin systems.
