BACKGROUND The regulation of renal sympathetic activity in the setting of heart failure is largely unexplored. We used the norepinephrine spillover method to address the hypothesis that baroreflex control of renal sympathetic activity is blunted in heart failure. METHODS AND RESULTS Twenty-two patients were studied, 11 in a group with heart failure and 11 in a group with normal ventricular function. In both groups, renal norepinephrine spillover was assessed in response to sodium… CONTINUE READING
