• Treatment of RVT mainly focuses on preventing further blood clots in the kidneys and maintaining stable renal function. (wikipedia.org)
  • Damage to the endothelial tissue of the vein can be caused by blunt damage, trauma during venography, a renal transplant, tumors, acute rejection, vasculitis or spontaneous micro-trauma to the endothelium due to homocystinuria. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other less common causes include hypercoagulable state, cancer, renal transplantation, behcet syndrome, antiphospholipid antibody syndrome or blunt trauma to the back or abdomen. (wikipedia.org)
  • RVT can also be induced by post transplant distortion or physical distortion or compression of the renal vein, which depending on the shape distortion can affect the rate of flow through the vein. (wikipedia.org)
  • The findings indicate that the same criteria, derived from renal vein renin studies, that have been used to predict the outcome of surgical repair of renal artery stenosis in hypertensive patients can be applied to the evaluation of patients with hypertension and complete occlusion of a main renal artery.

  • Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a potentially curable cause of renovascular hypertension (RVH) and is caused by either atherosclerosis or fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) in the vast majority of patients. (ebscohost.com)

  • The inferior vena cava is the lower ("inferior") of the two venae cavae, the two large veins that carry deoxygenated blood from the body: the inferior vena cava carries blood from the lower half of the body whilst the superior vena cava carries blood from the upper half of the body.
