Resistant Hypertension Treatment Market – Important changes in market dynamics 2017 – 2025

Global Resistant Hypertension Treatment Market: Overview

Hypertension is one of the common untreated diseases and poses major risk for heart failure, renal failure, cerebrovascular disease, cardiovascular disease, and coronary heart disease. About less than half of hypertensive patients in the U.S. are using economical generic antihypertensive drugs (AHDs). About 5%-10% (maximum to 20%-30%) of hypertensive patients with incompetently controlled hypertension have resistant hypertension. Resistant hypertension is a condition when the blood pressure remains higher than the normal range despite optimum dosage of three antihypertensive drugs, including a diuretics. Resistant hypertension includes patients whose blood pressure controlled on ≥ 4 antihypertensive drugs, but excludes those with uncontrolled blood pressure on <3 antihypertensive drugs or suboptimal antihypertensive drugs regimen. According to the latest research studies, prevalence rate of resistant hypertension is estimated to increase in the future. Resistant hypertension is found in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD), left ventricular hypertrophy (LVH), diabetes, higher systolic BP, obesity, and also among elderly patients. Resistant hypertensive patients are at higher risk of serious cardiovascular outcomes, hospitalization, and heart stroke, in particular.
