A 49 year old man was referred to our interventionist for percutaneous revascularisation for suspected bilateral renal artery stenosis. Cardiovascular risk factors included smoking, hypercholesterolaemia, and recently diagnosed hypertension. Renal function was normal. Doppler examination of the renal arteries was arranged because of poorly controlled hypertension. Doppler waveform of both renal arteries showed "tardus parvus" pattern (below, R.RA, right renal artery; L.RA, left renal artery) suggestive of significant bilateral renal arteries stenosis.. Physical examination before cardiac catheterisation, however, revealed weak bilateral lower limb pulses, radio-femoral delay and ejection systolic murmur over the back.. Cardiac catheterisation via the femoral approach documented coarctation of aorta with associated 100 mm Hg pressure gradient (right, upper panel). There was associated post-stenotic dilatation. Bilateral renal arteries were normal.. Subsequent magnetic resonance arteriography ...
During a 6 year period 60 patients with atherosclerotic renovascular disease were followed by a single renal unit. Angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors were being taken by 22% of patients at the time of diagnosis of the atherosclerotic renovascular disease. Intervention to revascularize renal tissue by surgery or angioplasty was performed...
Introduction: Ischemic nephropathy due to atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) is associated with poor event free survival. However, previous studies suggest that stenosis severity has a poor relation to kidney function. We sought to test the interactions of stenosis severity, and revascularization, on kidney function in people with ARAS.. Hypothesis: Stenosis severity is associated with poor renal function in people with ARAS.. Methods: The Cardiovascular Outcomes in Renal Atherosclerotic Lesions (CORAL) clinical trial is a prospective trial of individuals with atherosclerotic renal-artery stenosis. Patients were followed to a maximum of 8 years. Angiographic images were measured at a single core lab (University of Virginia) using quantitative computer-assisted angiography. Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) was measured using creatinine and cystatin-C, performed at a single core lab (University of Minnesota), and calculated using the CKD-EPI Creatinine-Cystatin C formula. The ...
Although expert consensuses recommend the use of statins in the treatment of atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis, in patients with severe atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis undergoing stent placement, the related investigation focused on renal protection by intensive lipid-lowering therapy is scant , and the optimal target level for lipid reduction remain uncertain. Therefore, we hypothesized that intensive lipid lowering could offer more benefits with respect to renal function in the patients with percutaneous renal artery stenting. We conducted the prospective randomized unblinded trial to compare the renal-protective effect of intensive lipid lowering with that of conventional lipid lowering in patients underwent renal artery stenting (75 patients in each study group ...
The ICAVL guidelines for transplant renal artery duplex ultrasound are similar to those for native arteries, with variations that include the need to examine the peri-transplant region with gray scale images, the arterial anastomosis with spectral Doppler waveforms and velocity measurements and the venous anastomosis with spectral Doppler waveforms. It should be noted that as external iliac artery stenosis can result in impaired blood flow to the transplanted kidney, this artery should also be interrogated as part of a complete examination.. Furthermore, it should be noted that transplant renal arteries have two characteristics that may cause elevated peak systolic velocity without stenosis. First, an end to side anastomosis may cause a local tortuosity and second, a transplant kidney tends to undergo hypertrophy and may be supplied by a higher than normal blood volume. Also, there is large normal variability of peak systolic velocity in transplant renal arteries.. Published peak systolic ...
Hypertension remains the most common reason for patients to visit physicians in the United States. Although awareness of hypertension among patients continues to increase, adequate control of hypertension remains poor. In addition, as the population of patients with hypertension ages, atherosclerosis becomes increasingly prevalent. Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis is the most common secondary cause of hypertension and can cause hypertension to be difficult to control. Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis may also result in chronic renal insufficiency. The physician must be aware of the clinical scenarios in which renal artery stenosis may occur, methods of diagnosis, and indications for intervention. ...

Renal artery stenosis is a relatively common finding in older patients with hypertension. However, renal artery stenosis is the primary cause of hypertension (ie, renovascular hypertension) only in certain settings.In most cases of renal artery steno
Renal artery stenosis (RAS,renal artery narrowing) is the narrowing of the lining of the main artery that supplies the kidney. RAS is the most common cause of secondary hypertension (high blood pressure produced by another disorder) in patients with kidney disease. Secondary hypertension is called renal vascular hypertension (RVH). Atherosclerotic Renal Artery Stenosis (AS-RAS) is due to the build-up of cholesterol on the inner lining of the renal artery. Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD).
Patients with renal artery stenosis (RAS) have high frequency of alterations of left ventricular mass and function. Whether renal revascularization can improve cardiac function and structure in patients with RAS is not known.. The Stenting of Renal Artery Stenosis in Coronary Artery Disease (RASCAD) study was planned to test whether renal artery revascularization, compared with medical therapy, affects left ventricular hypertrophy progression and clinical outcomes in a high-risk population such as patients with evidence of coronary artery disease and RAS.. Incidental patients affected by ischemic heart disease,undergoing cardiac catheterization at a single institution, are also evaluated for the presence of RAS by renal angiography at the end of coronarography. Patients with RAS ,50% and ≤80% are randomly assigned to stenting angioplasty plus medical therapy (angioplasty group) or to medical therapy alone (drug therapy group)and followed up. Patients, randomly assigned to the angioplasty ...
Hyponatremic hypertensive syndrome (HHS) is an uncommon disorder, in which hypertension is associated with profound hyponatremia. It is mostly encountered in adults with unilateral renal artery stenosis. Although renovascular hypertension is one of t
1. In 13 patients with hypertension and renal artery stenosis the stenosis was dilated by an intra-arterial balloon catheter under local anaesthesia.. 2. In all but one instance arteriography after the dilatation showed considerable widening of the stenosed area.. 3. Six patients had a temporary increase of serum creatinine that lasted only a few days.. 4. In seven patients, who had a prolonged transit time at renography, this marker of renal blood flow improved after the dilatation.. 5. The effect of the dilatation on the blood pressure in this group of patients, selected on arteriographic criteria only, was variable, but comparable with results of renovascular surgery.. 6. Dilatation of renal artery stenosis by an intra-arterial balloon catheter is a promising treatment for patients with hypertension and renal artery stenosis. It is a rapid procedure needing only local anaesthesia. Complications in our experience so far are minor.. ...

Background: In previous randomized trials, renal artery angioplasty has shown little clinical benefit in improving blood pressure in patients with renovascular hypertension. However, patients were mainly selected on the basis of angiographic parameters of the renal artery stenosis (RAS). Aim of the present study was to evaluate whether translesional pressure gradients could identify the patients with RAS who might benefit from angioplasty.. Methods: A total of 53 consecutive hypertensive patients with unilateral RAS scheduled for renal artery intervention were recruited. Transstenotic pressure gradients were measured at baseline and during maximal hyperemia, prior to renal artery stenting. Twenty-four hours ambulatory blood pressure measurements were performed in all patients prior to and three months after the intervention.. Results: Average reduction in systolic blood pressure (SBP) and diastolic blood pressure (DBP) at follow-up were −20±30 mm Hg and −2±12 mm Hg, respectively. At ...
Abstract Backgraound: Renal artery stenosis is a cause of secondary hypertension. Regarding known complication of this disease and possible positive effects of renal artery angioplasty on diastolic function, this study performed among patients with renal artery stenosis. Methods: This clinical trial, with before and after design, was performed on 35 eligible ...
Renal stenosis after sympathetic denervation of the renal arteries in hypertensive patients is a very unusual complication, but it sometimes appears together with hypertension recurrence. Since 2012, some cases have been published which draw our attention to the follow-up in those patients undergoing this procedure (1-3), stenosis being one of its possible complications. In 2014 we published the case of a bilateral renal stenosis, after renal arteries denervation (4). Since then, other cases have been published which highlight its relevance despite its low frequency (5). In our case, we present a 39-year-old patient with high blood pressure (BP) of 10-year evolution, left ventricular hypertrophy, and left putaminal hypertensive intracranial hemorrhage, which occurred one year before denervation. We found an early renal artery spasm, which was probably caused by direct manipulation of the catheter. This renal artery alteration continued in the patient follow-up. We then assumed that the stenosis ...
People who suffer from a narrowing of the arteries that lead to the kidneys, or renal artery stenosis, do not experience better outcomes when renal stenting is used finds a national research trial.
The present study evaluated the predictive value of renal resistive index (RI) for renal function and blood pressure (BP) outcome in hypertensive patients with unilateral atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis submitted to successful revascularization. In 158 hypertensive patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis RI was acquired. Twelve months after revascularization, they were classified on the basis of renal function and BP outcome as benefit (BP | 140/90 mmHg or diastolic BP reduction | 15 mmHg with the same of reduced drugs; decrease in glomerular filtration rate | 20%), or failure. Regarding renal function outcome, RI in the stenotic and in the contralateral kidney were significantly higher in patients with failure (n = 20) than in those with benefit (0.72 ± 0.11 vs 0.61 ± 0.11 and 0.76 ± 0.08 vs 0.66 ± 0.09, p | 0.05). Among different cutpoints generated, RI in the contralateral kidney |0.73 provided the largest area under the curve (0.77), and the highest sensitivity (80%) and
Pressor responses to norepinephrine (NE) infusions were examined in normal rabbits, in rabbits with renal artery stenosis of over 30 days duration (chronic renal hypertensive rabbits), and in rabbits with renal artery stenosis of 3 days duration (3-day clipped rabbits). The 3-day clipped rabbits did not have hypertension, but they showed the same increased pressor responses to NE as did the chronic renal hypertensive rabbits, which was about 2.5 times that of the normal rabbits. Plasma renin activity (PRA) was the same in the 3-day clipped rabbits as in the normal group, but in the chronic renal hypertensive rabbits the PRA was significantly below normal. Infusions of angiotensin II (A II) in either subpressor or pressor amounts potentiated the pressor responses to NE in normal rabbits, whereas, in 3-day clipped rabbits and chronic renal hypertensive rabbits, A II in subpressor or pressor doses did not alter the pressor responses to NE. Infusion of the A II antagonist, [1-sarcosine, ...
Duplex ultrasound checks the structure of renal arteries and veins, as well as the blood flow received through them, while diagnostic angiogram involves the insertion of a thin, flexible tube into the artery and injection of x-ray imaging dye to note areas of blockage. Some medications help to relax blood vessels or establish a more relaxed heartbeat, such as beta blockers, ACE inhibitors and Calcium channel blockers, while other drugs control cholesterol levels or eliminate excess water from the body, such as statin drugs or diuretics. In severe cases of renal artery stenosis, where lifestyle changes and medications are not enough to take care of the condition, minimally invasive surgery can be done, depending on the overall health of the patient, as well as the extent and location of the blockage. Additionally, renal artery endarterectomy can help to remove the build-up of fats, cholesterol, and the total summation of plaque from the renal arteries. Because the kidneys are among the most essential
Lisinopril (Prinivil), (A), is an ace inhibitor and should be initiated in heart failure patients. However, BV has an absolute contraindication to ACE inhibitor therapy, bilateral renal artery stenosis. Other absolute contraindications for ACE inhibitors are pregnancy and angioedema. Valsartan (Diovan), (C), is an ARB and may be initiated in heart failure patients as an alternative to ACE inhibitors. BV has an absolute contraindication to ARB therapy, bilateral renal artery stenosis. Eprelenone (Inspra), (D), is an aldosterone antagonist used in the management of systolic heart failure after the patient is on standard therapy with an ACE inhibitor and beta blocker. ...
The renal and systemic changes after stenosis of the left renal artery (n = 5) or sham stenosis (n = 6) in conscious dogs were studied sequentially over 25 days. Stenosis produced a prompt rise in arterial pressure, which was at all times due to reduced peripheral vascular conductance, with no increase in cardiac output despite initial evidence of mild fluid retention. The decrease in peripheral conductance was attributable to 1) the stenotic kidney (25% of the total and due to the mechanical effect of the stenosis itself), 2) the nonstenotic kidney (about 15% of the total and not caused by angiotensin II), and 3) the nonrenal vasculature (60%). The decrease in conductance in the nonrenal vasculature was due partly to angiotensin II, but there was also a gradually developing non-angiotensin II component. Acute administration of captopril caused significantly greater changes in arterial pressure and peripheral conductance throughout the period of stenosis than before stenosis (and greater than in ...
Hypertension Canadas 5th annual Canadian Hypertension Congress is being held from Oct 22-24, 2015, in Toronto and the AJKD Blog will be providing a couple highlights from the conference.. Professor Sheldon Tobe, from the Sunnybrook Hospital in Toronto, gave a State-of-the-Art lecture on "How to manage the patient with Renovascular disease post CORAL," which was followed by a predictably engaging discussion. CORAL, published in 2014 in the NEJM, was perhaps the last nail in the coffin for revascularization of renal arteries, and this topic was reviewed earlier this year by Bohlke and Barcellos, and on the blog also. To start off the session today, Dr. Tobe (who incidentally was one of the CORAL investigators) reviewed a case of a patient with severe bilateral renal artery stenosis (RAS) and uncontrolled hypertension, in whom one of the arteries got even thrombosed by the time the patient arrived under his care. Magnetic Resonance (MR) angiography revealed severe RAS, and Dr Tobe discussed his ...
Renal artery stenosis, thrombosis, aneurysm and renal vein thrombosis are all renal vascular diseases that require expert treatment from one of our specialists.
Upon an initial assessment the patient was advised to undergo an angiographic assessment to treat potentially severe recurrent right renal artery stenosis. The patient was counseled as to the risks of the procedure to include access site bleeding, hematoma, or aneurysm formation, contrast-related nephropathy or allergy, or arterial injury. She elected to proceed with the procedure.. The patient was taken to the procedure room and properly identified. She was monitored continually with electrocardiogram, pulse oxygen monitor, and blood pressure cuff. During the procedure, she received conscious sedation consisting of Versed 3 mg and Fentanyl 100 mcg IV in divided doses. She also received Kefzol 1 gram IV for antibiotic prophylaxis, Heparin 3000 units IV for anticoagulation prior to balloon angioplasty and at the end partial heparin reversal with Protamine 20 mg IV.. Both groins were prepped and draped in a sterile fashion. The skin and subcutaneous tissues overlying the right femoral artery were ...

N2 - Although surgical repair of renal artery stenosis occasionally improves renal function, it is not yet known when revascularization is indicated for that reason. We report the results observed in a patient with renovascular hypertension and additional stenosis in the contralateral kidney whose renal function deteriorated on repeated occasions during antihypertensive therapy. Renal hemodynamic studies during sodium nitroprusside infusion showed severely impaired autoregulation of blood flow, and glomerular filtration rate was corrected after revascularization of the contralateral kidney alone. After surgery, normal BPs were tolerated without loss of function. These findings demonstrate a specific clinical indication for renal ...

3. Systolic abdominal bruits (without a diastolic bruit) suggest renal vascular hypertension. Bilateral renal artery stenosis (RAS) can lead to severe exacerbation of hypertension and decline in renal function with initiation of ACE inhibitors or ARBs. Imaging to diagnose RAS include duplex ultrasonography, CTA (in individuals with normal renal function), and magnetic resonance angiography (MRA ...
Among patients with renal artery stenosis (with hypertension or renal insufficiency), renal artery stenting was not beneficial. Findings were similar in multiple prespecified subgroups. This treatment was hypothesized to improve a composite of CV outcomes. However, on a background of effective medical therapy, renal artery stenting did not slow the progression of renal insufficiency, nor did it reduce important CV outcomes. This negative result was despite a modestly lower achieved blood pressure in the stent group. These findings complement the ASTRAL and STAR trials, which were unable to document a benefit on kidney function from renal artery stenting.. ...
Objective: Renal ischemia (RI) is a clinical condition that occurs due to marked decrease in renal blood flow. The pathophysiology of RI is interlinked with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis, infarction, organ transplantation and sepsis. The mechanism of RI injury depends on various factors such as inflammatory response, oxidative stress and apoptosis. In this review, we evaluate the role of cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase in modulating the process of ischemic renal injury. Materials and Methods: This is a literature review of articles published on PubMed and Web of Science in English. Results: RI is characterized by an inflammatory response and oxidative stress, which are further worsened by the metabolites of the arachidonic acid pathway. Conclusions: RI results from a vigorous process involving inflammation and some mediators in a multifaceted interaction. Indulgence of oxidative stress and lipid peroxidation seems to be major factors which promote the inflammation process during ...
Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the renal artery has become an increasingly widespread peripheral vascular intervention for the treatment of renovascular hypertension (HTN). Catheter-based procedures began in 1964 when Charles Dotter initially developed PTA for treating peripheral vascular atherosclerosis.
