Abstract

The advances in our knowledge of renal hypertension over the last 75 years represents outstanding accomplishments in experimental and clinical medicine. A review of the highlights of this important investigation in hypertension should begin with Tigerstedt and Bergman's work in Scandinavia which demonstrated in 1898, that extracts of kidney possessed a hypertensive action. They gave the name "renin" to the impure substance which produced this effect. For the next 30 years much work was done on the vasoconstrictor action of extracts of the adrenal medulla, the nervous system and the kidney.
