Abstract : The author's observations confirm published data on the beneficial effect of leeches on patients with hypertension. Although arterial pressure drops after the leeches variably and slightly, sometimes only for a short period, nevertheless nearly all patients note a decrease of headache, cessation of tinnitus, improvement of sleep and mood. Thus, bdellotherapy has not lost its importance as a valuable auxiliary method of treating many diseases even at the present time. (Author)
