Belgyógyászati Intézet, Anyagcsere-betegségek Tanszék, Debreceni Egyetem, Általános Orvostudományi Kar Debrecen.

Since cardiovascular diseases are the main cause of mortality worldwide, the reduction of their risk is a crucial point of present-day medicine. It has been proven unequivocally that the administration of various treatments has a favorable effect on the frequency of cardiovascular events and on the atherosclerosis leading to them. Although systematic and guideline-driven administration of these drugs has led to a decrease in the incidence and mortality of vascular events, the leading position of this group of diseases in mortality and morbidity has not changed.

The paper presents the results of large randomized clinical trials conducted in recent years, evaluating the efficacy and safety of drugs used to treat hypertension. The results show that angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors and/or angiotensin receptor antagonists for use as monotherapy and especially in combination with calcium antagonists are effective in controlling blood pressure and in preventing and reducing complications of drugs compared with beta-adrenolytics used as monotherapy or in combination with diuretics. Antihypertensive therapy in the elderly reduces morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular causes. Read More

Hypertension is a highly prevalent disease and a strong risk factor for cardiovascular disease in industrialized countries in Europe and North America. About 40-50% of hypertensive patients have some other cardiovascular risk factors as smoking, dyslipidemia, glucose intolerance, metabolic syndrome and diabetes. The realization of optimal therapy of these patients is a difficult task, and reaching target blood pressure values is almost impossible by monotherapy. Read More
