The results of 61 consecutive patients with renal artery stenosis and renovascular hypertension after reconstruction are reported. 63% were males, 37% females. In 66% the disease was caused by arteriosclerosis-the mean age in this group 47 years. As operative procedures were performed: Saphenous vein bypass (35%), Dacron aorto-renal graft (29%), Thrombendarteriectomy (23%). Splenorenal anastomosis, resection-reimplantation, autotransplantation were performed in (13%). 18% of the operations were combined with other vascular, 15% with non vascular additional surgery. In 7.7% bilateral renal artery reconstructions were done simultaneously.

    Occurrence of renovascular hypertension and its etiology is described in this work as seen in north India. Out of 2395 young hypertensives admitted for evaluation during the years 1978-1983, 91 patients (3.8%) were found to be having renovascular hypertension. In all patients suspected diagnosis...

    A case of pseudo-coaretation of the abdominal aorta associated with renovascular hypertension has been reported. The abdominal aorta of the patient was kinked at the level of L1-L2 without a pressure gradient, which was consistent with pseudo-coarctation of aorta. Both renal arteries arose from...

    Background: Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is one of the main causes of secondary systemic arterial hypertension. Several non-invasive diagnostic methods for RAS have been used in hypertensive patients, such as color Doppler ultrasound (US). The aim of this study was to assess the sensitivity and...
