Adrenal Venous Sampling (AVS)

Adrenal venous sampling (AVS) is a procedure entailing the measurement of aldosterone from both adrenal veins to diagnose an adrenal source of excess aldosterone secretion. Because unilateral forms of primary aldosteronism may be treated surgically, identifying these sources by AVS is critical.
