Plasma renin activity and aldosterone metabolism were investigated in patients with cirrhosis and refractory ascites. All patients initially showed marked elevations of plasma and renin activity and plasma aldosterone. Although metabolic clearance of aldosterone was reduced, increased secretion rate was the major factor leading to elevated plasma levels… (More)
