The high levels of blood pressure affect about 1/3 of the occidental population increasing the risk factors for coronary heart disease, stroke and heart failure. Many studies have tried to understand the causes of hypertension and the possible mechanisms that facilitate the treatment of hypertension. The central nervous system (CNS) seems to have a key role on development and maintenanc...
The medial septal area (MSA) is a forebrain area involved in cardiovascular control and fluid-electrolytic balance. This area is rich in cholinergic receptors, and the activation of this area induces thirst, natriuresis, antidiuresis and an increase the arterial pressure. Experimental evidence shows that reactive oxygen species (ROS) may participate of control physiological responses. R...
Renovascular hypertension affects 1 - 4% of the hypertensive population and it is the largest cause of secondary hypertension, affecting 25% to 35% of the patients with secondary hypertension. Renovascular hypertension is also called Goldblatt hypertension and is induced experimentally by unilateral stenosis of a renal artery, which decreases renal perfusion pressure leading to renin re...
