Pediatric Hypertension

Obesity has become an increasingly important medical problem in children and adolescents. Primary hypertension is detectable in children and adolescents and, as in adults, is associated with a positive family history of hypertension, obesity, and life-style factors. Among children and adolescents with primary hypertension; the presence of obesity was associated with marked LVH. Most childhood hypertension, particularly in preadolescents, is secondary to an underlying disorder. Renal parenchymal disease is the most common (60 to 70%) cause of hypertension. Adolescents usually have primary or essential hypertension, making up 85 to 95% of cases.

The investigations have showed that children in the highest quartile of BP had significantly narrower retinal arterioles than those with lower BP, suggesting that higher BP in childhood is associated with alteration in the microvasculature. There is even emerging evidence that cognitive function is adversely affected by elevated blood pressure in childhood. This session includes the epidemiology, incidence and pathophysiology of pediatric hypertension related with obesity, along with the cardiovascular risk factors, the onset of hypertension and obesity on children and the treatment and management of pediatric hypertension and obesity.
