Studies on the Control of Hypertension by Hyphex
I. Effects on Blood Pressure
This report is the first of a series on a method for treatment of hypertension by oral hexamethonium chloride and hydrazinophthalazine. When strictly followed blood pressure was maintained at reasonable or normal levels in 80 per cent of 258 cases of severe hypertension. The malignant stage, when present, was reversed. Renal insufficiency and severe cerebral atherosclerosis limit the effectiveness of the method for prolongation of life.
