Malignant hypertension occurs primarily among males in their twenties and is far more prevalent among those of African descent. The diastolic pressure rises progressively and rapidly reaching 130 to 150 mm Hg with systolic pressure over 250. These subjects are at high risk for other cardiovascular events and may succumb to coronary infarction at an early age. Aggressive pharmacologic intervention is required. Secondary hypertension occurs in glomerulonephritis and progressive pyelonephritis. As afferent arterioles become narrowed from arteriolonephrosclerosis, renin levels increase and initiate release of angiotensin II, a potent vasoconstrictor.

Hyperkalemia is a common consequence and leads to cardiac arrhythmias. Vitamin D absorption is impaired, and in conjunction with hypocalcemia, secondary renal hyperparathyroidism evolves (see Chapter 10). These irreversible changes can only be overcome by dialysis three times each week or renal transplantation. As mentioned previously, the primary causes of these three renal malfunction syndromes are glomerulonephritis (GN) and pyelonephritis. There are many Table 4–1 Classification of Hypertension Benign “essential” Malignant Secondary Renovascular Aldosteronoma Pheochromocytoma Hyperadrenal corticism 39 subtypes of GN, depending upon the immunopathologic mechanisms taking place.

The longitudi- 27 28 CHAPTER 3 P T QRS Figure 3–1 Electrocardiogram shows regularly spaced spikes indicative of a normal steady rhythm. The depolarization wave originates in the right auricular sinoatrial (SA) node, which is represented by the P wave; the impulse then reaches the atrioventricular (AV) node that triggers a depolarization wave down the bundle branches then out through the ventricular musculature via Purkinje fibers. The ventricular wave is represented by the QRS complex. The electrical wave of repolarization in the atria is obscured in the EKG by the QRS complex, whereas ventricular repolarization is represented by the T wave followed by a pause until the SA pacemaker fires again.
