Abstract

Resistant or refractory hypertension is that in which the purpose of blood pressure control is not achieved in spite of the prescription of adequate changes in style of life and drug treatment that includes three antihypertensive drugs, one of them diuretic, at adequate doses. The causes of this refractoriness are different. Among them, pseudorefractoriness or pseudoresistance, lack of treatment compliance by the patient, clinical inertia, inadequate drug prescription or combinations, or presence of undiagnosed secondary hypertension stand out. These features are analyzed in the present review.
