Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview.

Thus, early diagnosis of RAS is an important clinical objective since interventional therapy may improve or cure hypertension and preserve renal function. Furthermore, angiography provides no information on the functional significance of the stenosis. Srterie to Document Link to publication in Scopus. Renal artery stenosis RAS is most commonly caused by either fibromuscular dysplasia or atherosclerosis, and it may occur alone isolated anatomical RAS or associated with hypertension, renal insufficiency ischemic nephropathy or both.

Various authors [8,9,11] currently think that the best signals for evaluation come from the large segmental or interlobar arteries as they course directly towards the transducer.

However, when is investigation of accessory RAs required? Tardus—parvus waveform in a patient with RA stenosis. We analyzed the renal artery flow-velocity in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and normal controls by pulsed-wave PW color-guided Doppler technique.

When the origins of the RAs are depicted with color Doppler in the rrenali position, the flow of the first segment of the right RA renal directed towards the transducer depicted in red color.


Proximal criteria direct evaluation of the stenosis Proximal criteria are direct signs obtained at the site of the stenosis.

In the detection of RAS, it is helpful to notice the degree and location of stenosis, arterial tortuosity and factors that influence PSVs in the abdominal aorta and RA. Thus, it cannot be established from the present data which of the two approaches is better. Accuracy of normal-dose eenali MR angiography in assessing renal artery stenosis and accessory renal artery stenosis and accessory renal arteries.

Doppler ultrasound, Ischemic nephropathy, Renal artery stenosis, Renovascular disease. Value of Doppler sonography for predicting clinical outcome after renal artery revascularization in atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis. Clinical utility of the resistive index in atherosclerotic renovascular disease.

N Engl J Med. Duplex scan sonography of renal artery stenosis. The authors [43] therefore suggested that repair of the stenosis is not warranted in these patients. The right RA originates from the anterolateral aspect of the aorta and immediately turns posteriorly to course beneath the inferior vena cava IVC.

Doppler flow-velocity analysis of renal arteries in left ventricular dysfunction

Accuracy of colour duplex sonography for the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis. The Doppler beam angle is optimized and close to zero. Parvus refers to the fact that the systolic peak is of low height, indicating a slow velocity Fig.

Detection of significant renal artery stenosis with color Doppler sonography: These criteria permit classification of RA narrowing into arterrie four categories listed in Table 1.

Note the small spike occurring at the end of the systolic rise. Technical failure is reported to be due to severe obesity, the use of older US devices, excessive bowel gas or poor flow in the main RA due to severe renal impairment.


Giornale Italiano di CardiologiaVol. Unlike obstructive uropathy [40,41]the abnormal kidney will show reduced RIs beyond the point of stenosis [42]. Thus, early diagnosis of RAS is an important clinical objective since interventional treatment may improve or cure hypertension and preserve renal function [5].

Particularly, the atherosclerotic form is a progressive disease that may lead to gradual and silent loss of renal function. In most cases the anterior approach is used to evaluate the main RAs. Although the exact angle should be reproduced for follow-up studies, this is not widely performed [8,11]. Finally, the number of technically inadequate US examinations may be reduced by searching for alterations in Doppler waveforms in areas of renal vasculature distal to a stenosis, instead of directly insonating the RA.

Numerous factors, such as age, hypertension and diabetes affect vessel compliance. Fiorinib S.

Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview.

Twenty-eight normal subjects mean age: Ultrasound and other modalities. Renal Doppler sonography — Update in clinical nephrology. The fourth criterion is the visualization of color artifacts such as aliasing at the site of the stenosis and the presence of turbulence at Doppler evaluation indicating the presence of a significant stenosis upstream.

The rationale is that the flow at the renal hilum downstream to a hemodynamically significant stenosis should become damped and show a slow rise to the peak systole [26].

This feature is seen only in a normal main RA. Published online Oct
