Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Interventions for renal arterial disease are primarily driven by functional consequences of the disease. These are poorly controlled hypertension, increasing renal dysfunction (often associated with loss of renal mass), and, more recently, control of congestive heart failure. The dominant causes are atherosclerotic stenosis and fibromuscular dysplasia. Good interventional technique allows for precise definition of the lesions, safe intervention, and appropriate interpretation of the end result. Strict adherence to the gold standard indications for intervention results in good longterm functional results.
