Abstract
The aim of the present report is to outline, in concise from, the changes in vascular structure which accompany hypertension. Consideration will be given to their potential contribution to hypertensive end organ damage. In so doing, it is important to consider both the macrovascular and microvascular levels, because interactions between them are presently believed to be critically important. The links between hypertension and the pathogenesis of arteriosclerosis fall outside the scope of this short review.
