Abstract

Hyperuricemia is associated with hypertension, kidney disease, vascular and cardiovascular (CV) events. In experimental models, the inhibition of hepatic uricase induces hyperuricemia, hypertension and mild renal disease. Notably, the micro-and macrovascular changes observed in the experimental model of hyperuricemia resemble the histological changes of human hypertension.This paper presents and discusses the epidemiological correlation between high serum uric acid levels and hypertension, and reviews current evidence supporting the protective effects of the normalization of uric acid levels.This review is based on a PubMed/Embase database search for articles on hyperuricemia and its impact on cardiovascular and renal function.
