OBJECTIVES With the present analysis we intended to investigate the magnitude of the effect of relative aldosterone excess in predicting peripheral as well as aortic blood pressure levels in a well-characterized cohort of patients undergoing coronary angiography. BACKGROUND The discussion on the relationship between aldosterone concentration and blood pressure has recently gone beyond the role of primary aldosteronism in the genesis of arterial hypertension. METHODS Plasma aldosterone (pg… CONTINUE READING
