Clearance data are customarily indexed to body surface area of 1.73 m2. This study examined whether this standard procedure gives correct values for renal perfusion in obese subjects. In 215 subjects who varied in age, gender, height, weight, obesity, and mean arterial blood pressure, RPF was determined by measuring the clearance of (131I)para-aminohippuric acid.
