Abdominal aortic aneurysm and renal artery stenosis: renal function and blood pressure before and after endovascular treatment

Journal of Human Hypertension

Abstract

We describe three patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) and renal artery stenosis (RAS). These patients were treated by placement of an aortic endograft and angioplasty or stenting of the renal artery. After the procedure renal function improved or remained stable in two patients and deteriorated slightly in one. Blood pressure was reduced in one hypertensive patient and remained normal in the other two normotensive patients. In conclusion, simultaneous treatment of AAA and RAS with aortic endograft placement and renal artery angioplasty with or without stent, is a safe and effective technique for selected high-risk patients.

Aneurysm

Aneurysms are outward distensions or bulges that occurs in a weakened wall of blood vessels. Discover the latest research on aneurysms here.

Aortic Aneurysm

An aortic aneurysm is the weakening and bulging of the blood vessel wall in the aorta. This causes dilatation of the aorta, which is usually asymptomatic but carries the risk of rupture and hemorrhage. Find the latest research on aortic aneurysms here.
