  1. The psychological and social condition of hypertensives resistant to pharmacological treatment.

    Article - En anglais

    To characterize patients with therapy-resistant essential hypertension (TR) from a psychosocial point of view, 29 hypertensives, filling specified criteria for TR in a hypertension clinic were selected out of 800 patients screened.

    A control group of patients with established, but well controlled hypertension, pair-wise matching study patients for age and gender was also selected.

    TR patients were predominantly of working-class origin (68 vs 19% P<0.001).

    They tended to be more obese (BMI 28.7+-5.5 vs 26.9+-3.9 ns).
