Name: Pre & Post Surgery
Abstract: A study was carried out involving twelve patients with aldosterone-producing adenomas (benign tumors) before and after adrenalectomy (surgical removal of one of the adrenal glands). All patients had high blood pressure, took antihypertensive drugs, and showed a tendency toward hypernatraemia, an electrolyte disturbance that is defined by an elevated sodium level in the blood. Profiles of these patients were taken at admission and two months after the operation.
