Screening for primary aldosteronism
What is it about?
Screening for primary aldosteronism among atrial fibrillation patients by using the aldosterone to renin ratio (ARR).
Why is it important?
We propose a screening procedure for primary aldosteronism in patients with both atrial fibrillation and hypertension, and emphasize the possibility to unmask an underlying hyperaldosteronism in spite of well controlled blood pressure and normokalemia.
