Description

Endocrine Hypertension: From Basic Science to Clinical Practice bridges the gap between scientists and practicing clinicians by providing a comprehensive overview on all forms of endocrine hypertension, covering epidemiological aspects, pathophysiology, clinical presentation, laboratory evaluation and practical management aspects of endocrine hypertension. This book is a great resource for endocrinologists, physicians, general practitioners and researchers who are eager to understand the complex facets of endocrine hypertension. Endocrine hypertension is a term used to describe a group of endocrine pathologies that cause an elevation of blood pressure, estimated to account for up to 10% of all hypertension cases. Although common, this clinical condition is often overlooked. Patients with this condition are at risk of late diagnosis, delayed treatment and detrimental health consequences.
