Effect of adrenalectomy on pulmonary edema resolution

The capacity of the lung to clear edema fluid has been shown to be one of the factors that can influence the prognosis of cardiogenic and noncardiogenic pulmonary edema. Active Na+ transport across the alveolar epithelium is the main driving force involved in this physiological process. Since endogenous catecholamines are known to activate the sodium-dependent mechanism of alveolar edema clearance, the objective of the present study was to explore if...
