Does a Distal right renal artery aneurysm of 11 x 0.9 CM need intervention?

Does a Distal right renal artery aneurysm of 11 x 0.9 CM need intervention?

Units?: I suspect there may be an error, 11x 0.9 cm aneurysm would be extremely large and likely would have ruptured. Studies have shown that aneurysms of mean size 1.5 cm (0.3 to 4.0 cm) did not rupture over the course of eight years. Symptomatic aneurysms, enlarging aneurysms or those exceeding 2 cm should be treated. ...Read more

What is a normal diameter for the renal artery?

What is a normal diameter for the renal artery?

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 more

Can renal artery occlusion be cured?

Can be relieved: Renal artery occlusion, a chronic condition can usually be relieved rather than "cured". Cure usually suggests that problem has completely resolved. Complete occlusion of renal artery would mean non function of kidney and can not be cured. 25% of people have two renal arteries and second artery can maintain function in part of kidney. Optimal treatment is stent placement by x-ray interventionist. ...Read more

I'm having stent procedure to open my renal arteries. How long is the recovery?

I'm having stent procedure to open my renal arteries. How long is the recovery?

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 more
