- Spectrum of renal findings in pediatric fibromuscular dysplasia and neurofibromatosis type 1. Srinivasan, Abhay; Krishnamurthy, Ganesh; Fontalvo-Herazo, Lucia; Nijs, Els; Meyers, Kevin; Kaplan, Bernard; Cahill, Anne-Marie // Pediatric Radiology;Mar2011, Vol. 41 Issue 3, p308
Background: Fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) and neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF1) are the most common causes of pediatric renal artery stenosis (RAS) in western countries, and characterization of their angiographic features could aid in an accurate diagnosis and in treatment. Objective: This study...
- Renal Doppler evaluation in the child with hypertension: a reasonable screening discriminator? Chhadia, Sumit; Cohn, Richard A.; Vural, Gulsah; Donaldson, James S. // Pediatric Radiology;Dec2013, Vol. 43 Issue 12, p1549
Background: Hypertension is diagnosed in 1â€“5% of children, and 5â€“10% of those hypertensive children have renovascular disease. The gold standard for a diagnosis of renal artery stenosis is arteriography, and Doppler ultrasound (Doppler US) continues to be advocated as a useful...
- Look for renal stenosis in elderly hypertensives. Rodriguez, Hector J.; P.D.L. // Cortlandt Forum;4/25/96, Vol. 9 Issue 4, p70

- Revascularization for Renal Function Retrieval: Which Patients Will Benefit? Marone, Luke K.; Cambria, Richard P. // Perspectives in Vascular Surgery & Endovascular Therapy;Oct2004, Vol. 16 Issue 4, p249
Atherosclerotic renovascular disease is a relatively common etiology of end-stage renal failure and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Despite nearly four decades of clinical experience in renal artery revascularization, few randomized controlled trials compare medical...
- Renal function and outcome of PTRA and stenting for atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis. Ramos, Felipe; Kotliar, Carol; Alvarez, Daniel; Baglivo, Hugo; Rafaelle, Pablo; Londero, Hugo; Sánchez, Ramiro; Wilcox, Christopher S. // Kidney International;Jan2003, Vol. 63 Issue 1, p276
Renal function and outcome of PTRA and stenting for atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis. Background. Prior studies of percutaneous transluminal renal artery angioplasty and stenting (PTRAS) for atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS) have shown that renal function is improved in about 25%,...

- Acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin) test for the diagnosis pf renovascular hypertension. Gluszek, Jerzy; Posadzy-Malaczynska, Abnna // Clinical & Investigative Medicine;Jun97, Vol. 20 Issue 3, p171
Determines whether the administration of acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin/ASA) differentiates patients with renovascular hypertension from those with essential hypertension. Decreased systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure after ASA injection; Sensitivity and specificity of the test;...
- MDCT of renal and mesenteric vessels. Fleischmann, Dominik // European Radiology;Dec2003 Supplement 5, Vol. 13, pM94
Computed tomography angiography (CTA) with multiple detector-row CT (MDCT) has evolved into an established technique for non-invasive imaging of renal and mesenteric vessels. With adequate selection of acquisition parameters (thin collimation) high spatial-resolution volumetric data sets for...
