Nerves in the wall of the renal artery
are ablated by applying radiofrequency pulses to the renal arteries.
In each case, the RAA involved the renal artery
bifurcation and would have led to branch vessel occlusion and loss of functional renal parenchyma.
embolism: Clinical features and long term follow up of 17 cases.
5T Vantage Atlas and Vantage Titan MR systems, as well as CT angiography for the evaluation of renal artery
The REACT study has proved that it is now possible to detect renal artery
stenosis without using contrast agents.
In the current randomized study, investigators assigned 947 patients with resistant hypertension or elevated chronic kidney disease and atherosclerotic renal artery
stenosis to medical therapy that either included or excluded stenting.
In the study, blinding was rigorously managed by renal artery
catheterization of all 535 patients, with RF ablation instituted in two-thirds of the patients, and a sham operation conducted in one-third.
The more inferior accessory renal artery
was initially selected and revealed no evidence of active extravasation, pseudoaneurysm, or arteriovenous (AV) fistula.
We report a case of WS in a 63-year-old female who presented with spontaneous perinephric and subcapsular hemorrhage from the superior right renal artery
During this minimally invasive procedure, the interventionalist uses the catheter to deliver radio frequency energy to the renal artery
via femoral artery access.
In a newly developed approach, a catheter is introduced percutaneously to the lumen of the main renal artery
via femoral access and used to disrupt renal nerves located in the adventitia of these arteries by using radiofrequency energy.
The Symplicity Catheter System accomplishes renal denervation through a minimally invasive procedure that disables sympathetic nerves located in the renal artery
walls and does not involve a permanent implant.
Digital subtraction angiography revealed a total occlusion of the left subclavian artery and a severe narrowing of the right renal artery
An angiogram was conducted to see the severity of the injuries and doctors decided to urgently insert a stent in the renal artery
through an invasive procedure.
A primarily American group of clinicians working in nephrology, endocrinology, cardiology, and other areas help keep physicians up-to- date with the latest practices related to reducing blood pressure, the effects of sodium and potassium intake on blood pressure, obesity- related hypertension treatment, renal artery
stenosis, pre- hypertension, older patients with isolated systolic hypertension, minority populations, patients with ischemic heart disease or diabetes, and other topics.
