Introduction: Valuation of doxazosin, system formulation modified, in the hipertension in the hemodialysis population. Method: Arterial Hypertension (AHT) has been studied in 77 patients (p) subjected to hemodialysis (HD). Mean age (mag) was 61 years (y), range 84y-25y; 66% were males. The underlying etiology was glomerular in 19%, tubulo-interstitial in 18%, congenital in 18%, vascular in 19% and diabetic in 26%. Results: Doxazosin (system formulation modified, single daily dose (4 mg), treatment follow-up was completed in 16 patients subjected to HD for 24 weeks (wk). Conclusion: It is concluded that AHT is of great importance in HD, and can be adequately controlled with the new antihipertensive drugs. In this context, doxazosin affords excellent therapeutic control, efficency and good pharmacological toerance.
