Abstract:


Aortic stenosis (AS) has an increasing prevalence with age and is commonly associated with hypertension. While it has been established that hypertension is associated with increased mortality in patients with AS, further randomized control trials addressing the use of antihypertensives specifically in patients with AS are needed. The management of hypertension in patients with AS needs a cautious approach due to complex hemodynamic and structural changes involved. Comorbidities like coronary artery disease, heart failure and arrhythmias further dictate management of hypertension in patients with AS. The aim of this article is to review the various agents used in the management of hypertension in patients with AS.

Keywords:

Aortic stenosis, Hypertension, Antihypertensives in AS, ACE/ARB in AS.
