Kidney volume to GFR ratio predicts functional improvement after revascularization in atheromatous renal artery stenosis.
 

Author(s): Constantina Chrysochou, Darren Green, James Ritchie, David L Buckley, Philip A Kalra

Journal:

 

Randomized controlled trials (RCT) have shown no overall benefit of renal revascularization in atherosclerotic renovascular disease (ARVD). However, 25% of patients demonstrate improvement in renal function. We used the ratio of magnetic resonance parenchymal volume (PV) to isotopic ...

Renal artery stenosis: if and when to intervene.
 

Author(s): Stephen C Textor, Michael M McKusick

Journal: Curr. Opin. Nephrol. Hypertens.. 2016 Mar;25(2):144-51.

 

Atherosclerotic renovascular disease remains highly prevalent and presents an array of clinical syndromes. Recent prospective trials have dampened enthusiasm for revascularization generally, but clinicians recognize the need to identify patients likely to benefit from vascular intervention.
