The renal hemodynamic and neurohumoral determinants of sodium and water excretion abnormalities were studied in 66 patients with severe chronic congestive heart failure. Abnormalities were not closely related to any one variable but were the result of the convergence of a number of determinants. The most important determinants for sodium excretion were activation of the renin-angiotensin system and ventricular function; and the most important for water excretion were plasma vasopressin, plasma… CONTINUE READING
