A stress reaction affects assessment of selectivity of adrenal venous sampling and of lateralization of aldosterone excess in primary aldosteronism.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A stress reaction involving increased cortisol release, which has not been documented thus far, might affect the assessment of selectivity of catheterization during adrenal venous sampling (AVS). OBJECTIVE To investigate whether an ACTH-driven cortisol release occurs during AVS and whether it influences the assessment of selectivity by the step… (More)
