BACKGROUND Primary hyperaldosteronism (PHA) is characterized by a raised plasma aldosterone concentration (PAC) with suppressed plasma renin activity (PRA). We evaluated two renin mass methods for PHA detection compared with the PAC:PRA ratio. METHODS Samples from patients attending a specialist hypertensive clinic were analysed by Liaison automated… CONTINUE READING
