Out of the ivory tower: Detection of secondary arterial hypertension

 

Secondary forms of arterial hypertension are markedly undetected leaving millions of people exposed to the ominous consequences of high cardiovascular risk in Europe. Aim of the research topic is to test the hypothesis that a systematic approach based on updated education of general practitioners (GPs) and on implementation into practice of simplified validated diagnostic algorithms can improve the case detection of the secondary forms of hypertension.
