Studies of plasma renin activity in coarctation of the aorta.

Abstract

Experimental and clinical studies were performed to assess the role of the renin-angiotensin system in producing hypertension in coarctation of the aorta. Basal and stimulated peripheral plasma renin activity were determined in the canine model and in four patients with coarctation. The animal studies showed no significant elevation of peripheral plasma… (More)
