The present study was undertaken prospectively to compare the diagnostic significance of the seated saline suppression testing (SSST) with the captopril challenge testing (CCT) in hypertensive patients with suspected primary aldosteronism (PA) using the fludrocortisone suppression testing (FST) as the reference standard, and to investigate the optimal cutoff of SSST for differentiating PA from other forms of hypertension.
