Abstract

Introduction: Catheterisation of the right adrenal vein when performing adrenal vein sampling (AVS) is challenging. The AVS Accuracy Kit (AAK) (Trust Medical, Kasai, Japan) enables point-of-care confirmation of accuracy of AVS by rapid cortisol assay. We investigated whether use of AAK during AVS would impact upon procedural success, number of venous samples taken, radiation dose and screening time.
