Answer

In patients with an aldosteronoma, medical therapy is used preoperatively to control blood pressure and correct hypokalemia, thus decreasing surgical risk. Medical therapy is also administered to patients with persistent HTN postoperatively, poor surgical candidates, and patients who refuse surgery.
