ISN-ISE Webinar: Resistant Hypertension – A Closer Look at Endocrine and Renal Causes

  • 4:00 PM CET

Treatment resistant hypertension carries a high morbidity and mortality risk. Often secondary causes exist that demand a distinct therapeutic approach. Among the causes, obstructive sleep apnea, renal parenchymal disease, renal artery stenosis, and primary aldosteronism are the most prevalent. Unfortunately, these secondary factors frequently go undetected, leading to delayed and inadequate treatment.

The underlying pathogenesis involves the hyperactivity of both the sympathetic nervous system and the renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system. Proper diagnosis necessitates a collaborative effort between endocrinologists and nephrologists to uncover the underlying cause and devise a tailored treatment plan.

Join us in this enlightening webinar as we explore the intricate world of endocrine and renal causes behind resistant hypertension. Discover the critical path to diagnosis and effective treatment for this serious, and often overlooked condition.

Learning objectives: 

  • Define treatment-resistant hypertension and list the most frequent causes.
  • Discuss the endocrine etiologies of secondary hypertension and the different diagnostic algorithms.
  • Investigate the renal factors responsible for secondary hypertension, incorporating different diagnostic modalities.
  • Analyze therapeutic approaches for managing secondary hypertension stemming from endocrine and renal causes.
