The overall rate of release of noradrenaline to plasma was increased in 31 patients with essential hypertension; the median value was 32% (526 pmol/min) higher than in 22 subjects with normal blood pressure. To ascertain the pattern of sympathetic nervous system activation underlying this abnormality, regional sympathetic nervous activity was estimated, from radiotracer-derived estimates of organ-specific noradrenaline release to plasma, in the kidneys, heart and hepatomesenteric circulation… CONTINUE READING
