The place of beta-blockers in the treatment of arterial hypertension in 2017: is all so bad?

G.D. Radchenko


This article is the review of the literature data about the effectiveness and safety of beta-blockers in arterial hypertension treatment. There were analyzed the influence of beta-blockers on cardiovascular events, central blood pressure and arterial stiffness, glucose and lipid metabolism, target organ damage and quality of life in patients with arterial hypertension. There was concluded that adverse effect rate of beta-blockers is not high in clinical trials and is exaggerated by general practitioners. In patients with arterial hypertension and indications, the beta-blocker treatment is more useful than no treatment, including in patients with diabetes mellitus, metabolic syndrome, the elderly, persons with chronic obstructive pulmonary diseases. If there is a high risk of adverse reactions, the beta-blockers with vasodilation are more benefit. Special stress was done on positive influence of carvedilol.
