Keeping up to date with the vast amount of published papers in hypertension is a difficult task for the individual doctor. The Year in Hypertension 2000 provides a highly focussed review of the current literature, compiled by an expert team from one of the leading centres in the field. A single volume overview of literature in hypertension, it identifies the papers published in the past eighteen months that have potentially changed practice, or that point to future developments. It provides the reader with a summary of developments in hypertension and its management. This is a practical guidebook which every doctor treating patients with hypertension should have on his desk.
