Evidence of prostacyclin deficiency in the syndrome of hyporeninemic hypoaldosteronism

The New England Journal of Medicine

Apr 17, 1986

J L NadlerR Horton

Abstract

Hyporeninemic hypoaldosteronism is an important cause of hyperkalemia and is characterized by low renin secretion. We found that prostacyclin, a potent vasodilator and renin secretagogue, was markedly reduced--as reflected by its stable urinary metabolite 6-keto-prostaglandin F1 alpha--...read more
