Despite being the major cause of morbidity and mortality in the developed world (and increasingly prevalent in developing countries), hypertension remains a disorder with a complex and elusive aetiology, a chronic condition that can be alleviated by a large and varied range of combination drug regimens and lifestyle management. Consequently, hypertension specialists and other physicians need to be familiar with the latest research and results from clinical trials to ensure patients receive the best care possible. In this, the sixth volume of The Year in Hypertension, Professor Brunner has brought together a team of recognised experts to review the vast output of peer-reviewed literature in this field. Readers will find insightful reviews of more than 100 key papers published in the past 12 months, highlighting important findings and discussing the direction that future research needs to take to answer those issues still unresolved. The Year in Hypertension is a vital resource for busy doctors confronted with the task of keeping up to date with the latest findings in hypertensive medicine and incorporating this information into their normal clinical practice. From a review of a previous volume in the series: Given the vast amount of information collected in this book, it is a valuable adjunct for busy clinicians who want to be informed about the most recent developments in hypertension quickly.
