Abstract

Primary aldosteronism is one of the most common forms of secondary hypertension, but it is often under diagnosed, which leads to the development of cardiovascular damage, and excess costs for long-term drug treatment and management of complications. The aldosterone to renin ratio (ARR) is a key step for early detection of primary aldosteronism, but unfortunately is not easily estimated. This is because plasma aldosterone and renin are measured with different assays, which provide results in different units of measure, with ensuing difficulty of obtaining the calculation of the ARR in the proper units and impossibility of interpreting results with reference to established cut off values. Therefore, doctors are often unable to draw unambiguous conclusions to be used for the clinical decision-making. To the aim of making the diagnostic work-up easier, we have developed an Application that provide a swift calculation of the ARR regardless of the units of measure used for plasma aldosterone and renin values. If the concomitant serum potassium level is available the App also provides the patient's probability of having an aldosterone-producing adenoma based on a validated logistic discriminant analysis.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 1. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 18 April 2017.
All research outputs
#9,999,153
of 12,492,926 outputs
Outputs from High Blood Pressure & Cardiovascular Prevention
#87
of 126 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#188,075
of 269,882 outputs
Outputs of similar age from High Blood Pressure & Cardiovascular Prevention
#4
of 4 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 12,492,926 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 11th percentile – i.e., 11% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 126 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.1. This one is in the 15th percentile – i.e., 15% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 269,882 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 16th percentile – i.e., 16% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 4 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one.
