According to evidence gathered in studies over recent years, there appears to be a link between the activation of the renin–angiotensin–aldosterone system (RAAS) and potentially severe cardiovascular problems. The primary process responsible for these cardiac events is acute intravascular arterial thrombosis.
The final product of the RAAS system, Aldosterone (ALDO), plays a role in the pathogenesis of cardiovascular diseases. In fact, high levels of ALDO were found to be associated with an increase in total mortality, risk of acute cardiac event, and more. In this study, researchers investigated the role of ALDO in the development of arterial thrombosis in rat models.
