Özet

Purpose: Prostaglandins play important roles in renal physiology and in the development of renovascular hypertension. In a recent study, inhibition of renal prostaglandin synthesis was found to be useful for detecting renovascular hypertension using renal scintigraphy. In the current study, the authors evaluated the role of aspirin (an inhibitor of prostaglandin synthesis) and compared it with Tc-99m DTPA captopril renal scintigraphy (CS).
