Recent studies indicate that primary aldosteronism (PA) is a much more common cause of hypertension than had been demonstrated historically. In patients with resistant hypertension, the prevalence of PA from different clinics worldwide is about 10-20%. As has been no such data in China, the investigators are conducting a PA study in different provinces of China to evaluate the prevalence of PA in patients with resistant hypertension.
