Methods of glomerular filtration rate measurement by 51Cr EDTA elimination, inulin clearance and creatinine clearance were compared with and without captopril pretreatment in 10 chronic heart failure patients and in 20 patients after transmural myocardial infarction. Strong intermethod correlations were found in chronic heart failure patients (EDTA: inulin r = 0.87; EDTA: creatinine r = 0.84; inulin: creatinine r = 0.9; all P less than 0.00001). Despite this, substantial absolute differences… Expand
