Abstract

Arterial hypertension is one the most common disorder of the cardiovascular system. Throughout years of investigation, more and more effective substances were introduced to antihypertensive therapy, including newly developed therapeutical schemes. Despite such advancement in therapeutical strategy, a group of patients remains afflicted with resistant arterial hypertension and it seems resistant to antihypertensive medication even in maximum doses. In Poland the estimated number of patients with resistant arterial hypertension is between 12-13% of the total population treated for hypertension. Data suggests a low frequency of this phenomenon, however statistics estimating the frequency of arterial hypertension in groups of patients admitted to reference centers, suggest a ten-fold increase [1, 2]. A patient with resistant hypertension, as opposed to a patient after a successful treatment of hypertension with good control over BP (blood pressure) values, can be characterised by faster developments in complications within the organs. Consequently the cardiovascular risk is considerably higher.
