Abstract: Background. Renal artery stenosis (RAS) becomes haemodynamically significant when it reduces the arterial pressure below the threshold for autoregulation of renal perfusion. Physiological responses to reduced renal perfusion include activation of hormonal cascades, causing hypertension, and reduction of glomerular plasma filtration, causing renal insufficiency. The optimal diagnostic work-up and treatment for symptomatic RAS remains to be determined. Methods. Patients with hypertension and sus... more
