Angiogram Of Renal Arteries
Accessory arteries: Normal variant of blood flow to kidney. ...Read more
Arteries are defined as blood vessels which carry blood away from the heart (to either the body or lungs). Arteries: higher pressure, thicker walls, stretch (pulse) with each heart contraction & deliver blood to the arterioles which control the flow to individual capillaries. Veins are blood vessels which carry blood from capillaries back to the heart (body to right heart; ...Read more
Treat renal stenosis: The treatment of a blocked kidney artery is controversial. The 3 ways would be medications, surgery, or arterial stents. There is evidence that all 3 work equally well, even in severe cases, although there are some cases where surgery or a stent may yield a better outcome. However, the risk of surgery or stents is not small, and therefore, a conservative approach with medicine is often best. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Relatively quick: In general your renal arteries 'recover' right away, e.g. If you had renal hypertension due to stenosis it is resolved with the percutaneous revascularization. The recovery is for the groin access: most people stay overnight and restrict (some) activities for 1-2 weeks. A week is usually sufficient. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

My baby is born with narrowed renal arteries. What effect will this condition have on urine volume?
There are several: There are several concerns. The immediate is blood pressure. If the blood pressure is high for an infant it may need to be treated. If the kidney function tests are normal in the first few weeks of life then urine volume should be relatively normal. If Blood pressure becomes elevated and untreated, kidney disease can set in and reduce urine volume fluids need to be restricted at that time. ...Read more
My brother21years old,has double renal arteries originating from the aorta on one side and hypertension because of that.How can be treated permanently?
Renal hypertension: Permanent cure???? Nothing can promise permanent resolution of his problems. Studies and experience have shown that in most such patients, surgery ( resection of smaller blood vessel) can accentuate problems. However in some cases such surgeries can cause some relief. Your nephrologist and a good vascular surgeon should be able to give you best advice. ...Read more
My 20 week ultra sound showed my baby has 2 renal arteries to her left kidney. Is this a problem and what issues could this cause if any?
Kidney anomaly: About 1/500 individuals in the general population will have an anomaly in the formation of the kidneys.The one you mention means there is probably separate upper and lower segments on that side and one would wonder if this occurred in isolation or as part of a duplication of both kidney & collecting system. These deserve watching but are compatible with a relatively normal life. ...Read more
Variable: The exact diameter is not the issue since many people have small arteries with no problems. The problem usually is in the stenosis i.e. Constricted area. More than 60% stenosis (narrowing) is considered severe. However, severity by itself is not the only reason to do intervention (put a stent) since if the kidney function, bp, potassium are stable with no resistant edema observation only is chosen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Renal artery Doppler: Doppler ultrasound uses focused sound waves to measure the velocity of blood flowing through the renal artery.If the blood flows more rapidly through the artery it suggests that there is a narrowing in the artery. The focused sound waves can also be used to locate where the artery is narrowed. Because it is an indirect measure of narrowing, it is used as a screening test only. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
