Özet

Background: The major cause of hereditary renal failure is autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease (ADPKD). Many factors affect renal progression in these patients. Among these, hypertension and an increase in renal volume are interrelated in terms of their effects on renal progression. We aimed to investigate the effects of losartan and ramipril on renal volume and progression in patients with ADPKD.
