Abstract

To determine whether active renin and endothelin levels in venous plasma differ between patients with renal artery stenosis and patients with primary hypertension. Among the patients with renal artery stenosis we also compared active renin and endothelin levels between subjects who had been cured or whose blood pressure had improved after treatment of the stenosis and those without a beneficial reaction after such treatment.
