The renin-angiotensin-aldosterone system (RAAS) plays an integral role in maintaining vascular tone, optimal salt and water homeostasis, and cardiac function in humans. However, it has been recognized in recent years that pathologic consequences may also result from overactivity of the RAAS. Clinical disease states such as renal artery stenosis, hypertension, diabetic and nondiabetic nephropathies, left ventricular hypertrophy, coronary atherosclerosis, myocardial infarction, and congestive… CONTINUE READING
