Caption: High blood pressure. Conceptual artwork of the main organs affected by abnormally high arterial blood pressure (hypertension) seen with drug tablets. As well as the heart (centre left) and kidney (centre right), there is an artery (lower right). Hypertension increases the risk of developing coronary artery disease, the narrowing or blockage of the coronary arteries that supply the heart muscle with oxygen. It also causes kidney damage, and has been linked to atheroscler- osis, the blockage of an artery due to the build- up of fatty plaques on its inner lining. Although patients should alter their lifestyles, antihyper- tensive drugs will also reduce blood pressure.
