Adrenal vein sampling (AVS) is currently considered the gold standard for subtype diagnosis of primary aldosteronism (PA). However, the percentage of unsuitable procedures due to the unsuccessful cannulation of one of the two adrenal veins is still considerable, and there is no general consensus on the criteria that should be used for the interpretation of the results of an AVS study in these specific cases.
