The intra-examiner variability was good correlation 0. The proximal right RA is not only deep in the abdomen but it also lies perpendicular to the Doppler beam in the usual transverse scan plane [8,9,10]. Role of duplex scanning for the detection of atherosclerotic renal artery disease. Screening for RAS is indicated in suspected renovascular hypertension or ischemic nephropathy, in order to identify patients in whom an endoluminal or surgical revascularization is advisable.
Logias d Department of Nephrology and Dialysis, S. 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. Main indications include cases where Doppler trace is difficult to obtain in basal conditions because of the overlying tissues, calcifications or weakness of the signal. The contrast-enhanced Doppler ultrasound with perfluorocarbon exposed sonicated albumin does not improve the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis compared with angiography.
If the course of the main RAs is well recognized, angle-corrected velocity estimates can be made. Tardus means slow and late and parvus means small and little.
Clinical utility of the resistive index in atherosclerotic renovascular disease. Ultrasound and other modalities. In this case, the stenosis produces a significant decrease in renal blood flow. Thus, early diagnosis of RAS is an important clinical objective since interventional therapy may improve or cure hypertension and preserve renal function.
Published online Oct Renal Doppler sonography — Update in clinical nephrology. Color change is seen shortly after the origin, where the direction of the flow is directed posteriorly.
Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview
Value ecosoppler Doppler sonography for predicting clinical outcome after renal artery revascularization in atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis. Access to Document Link to publication in Scopus. From a practical point of view, there are only two major diseases that affect the RAs: The main RA divides at the hilum, either within or outside the kidney, into anterior and posterior branches that further divide into segmental and ecodopplfr interlobar arteries.

In clinical practice the value of RI 0. Microbubble ultrasound contrast agents: Correlation of renal histopathology with sonography findings. While captopril renography was widely used in the past, Doppler ultrasound US of the renal arteries RAsangio-CT, or magnetic resonance angiography MRA have replaced ecodooppler modalities and they are now considered the screening tests of choice.
However, when a discrepancy exists between clinical data and the results of Doppler US, additional tests are mandatory.
Creatinine clearance was determined in each patient. Abstract Renalo disease is a complex disorder, most commonly caused by fibromuscular dysplasia and atherosclerotic diseases. Enhanced flow velocity after stenting of renal arteries is associated with decreased ecodooppler function. It can be found in one of three forms: RAS due to atherosclerotic changes of the RAs has become a serious concern as a cause of hypertension and renal ischemia, resulting frequently in end-stage renal failure .
At present, however, only preliminary results have been presented in the literature, and further studies are needed before the introduction of this technique in clinical practice.
Clinical screening of hypertensive patients is therefore recommended before extensive investigation for renovascular disease is started. The pathologic causes of RAS include atherosclerosis, fibromuscular dysplasia FMDarteritis, dissection and neurofibromatosis. However, when a discrepancy exists between clinical data and the ecoxoppler of Doppler US, additional tests are mandatory. Color-Doppler US CDUS is a noninvasive, repeatable, relatively srterie diagnostic procedure which can accurately screen for renovascular diseases if performed by an expert.

Normal findings When the origins of the RAs are depicted with color Doppler in the transverse position, the flow of the first segment of the right RA is directed towards the transducer depicted in red color.
Axial section of the midepigastric region showing the origin of both RAs. Atherosclerotic RAS is a progressive disease, particularly in patients with diabetes or other manifestations of atherosclerosis .

While captopril renography was widely used in the past, Doppler ultrasound US of the renal arteries RAsangio-CT, or magnetic resonance angiography MRA have replaced other modalities and they are now considered the screening tests of choice.
Giornale Italiano di Cardiologia. In selected cases the posterior approach can be used [8,9]. In patients with left ventricular dysfunction, by renal artery PW Doppler analysis it is possible to detect noninvasively a reduction in regional flow-velocity and an increase in Doppler-derived vascular resistance indexes.
