AbstractHypertension is one of the most prevalent vascular diseases in the general population and is a major contributor to cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. Recent clinical trials have confirmed the benefits of treatment of hypertension to prevent stroke, congestive heart failure, and left ventricular hypertrophy. Despite the availability of many newer agent, blood pressure continues to be inadequately controlled in the majority of the hypertensive patients. There is still a lot of controversy in some of the issues in the management of hypertension. The present article summarizes some of the recent studies and published guidelines in the management of hypertension and provides some insight to these questions. Although the answers to some of these questions are still unclear, ongoing large scale studies should soon provide additional answers to these questions.
