High blood pressure, known as hypertension, generally develops over many years. Uncontrolled hypertension increases your risk of serious health problems, including heart attack, stroke and kidney problems. Luckily, hypertension can be controlled with careful treatment and monitoring. On Mayo Clinic Radio, nephrologist Dr. Vincent Canzanello discusses treatment and prevention of hypertension. Also on the program, Dr. Chet Rihal, division chair, Cardiovascular Diseases, explains causes, treatment and prevention of coronary artery disease. And, keeping the heart in mind, transplant surgeon Dr. Richard Daly shares the latest numbers from Mayo Clinic’s Heart Transplant Program.
