The aldosterone-renin ratio is widely used to screen for primary aldosteronism. We conducted a systematic review of the literature to establish the test characteristics (sensitivity, specificity, likelihood ratios at different cutoff values) of the aldosterone-renin ratio used in screening for primary aldosteronism in subjects with presumed essential hypertension. We searched Medline, EMBASE, and Current Contents databases, bibliographies of retrieved papers, and personal files for all reports… CONTINUE READING
