Center for Hypertension

Massimo Volpe

High blood pressure is the most common chronic disease in our country and is the leading cause of cardiovascular events with often disabling consequences such as myocardial infarction, stroke, heart failure, and atrial fibrillation. Correct, timely, and appropriate management of high blood pressure can also avoid serious consequences in the brain, kidney, and eye at all ages of life.

Gli obiettivi

The Center’s activities are conducted on an outpatient basis and are intended for the clinical management of hypertension with special reference to difficult-to-treat forms, therapy-resistant forms, and secondary forms. In addition, diagnostic activity is directed at identifying, preventing, and treating cardiac, vascular, and renal organ damage resulting from hypertension. Finally, therapeutic approaches based on lifestyle modifications and antihypertensive drugs will be developed on an individualized basis, following the European Hypertension Guidelines
