Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview

The main RA divides at the hilum, either within or outside the kidney, into anterior and renzli branches that further divide into segmental and then interlobar arteries. Spectral Doppler waveform of the stenotic area in the right RA. What do Doppler indices of renal perfusion tell us for the evaluation of renal disease? Doppler US criteria of RAS can be divided into two groups based on direct findings obtained at the level of the stenosis proximal criteriaor on flow changes observed in the renal vasculature distal to the site of stenosis distal criteria.

Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview.

On the right, an additional aid in locating the RA is to image the IVC and to look posterior to it until a vessel crossing perpendicularly and of the opposite color is found [9].


Logiasd M. Access to Document Link to publication in Scopus. We analyzed the renal renai flow-velocity in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and normal controls by pulsed-wave PW color-guided Doppler technique.

Classicamente si presenta in una delle seguenti tre forme: The use of colorflow duplex scanning to detect significant renal artery stenosis. The highest frequency transducer that allows good demonstration of arterial waveforms is preferable.

The right RA is depicted in red, the left RA in blue.

It can be found wrterie one of three forms: Also in this situation, the patient is turned to the opposite decubitus position from the vessel being examined.

In this location, signals are the strongest and most reproducible. Looking at the RAs and the aorta as a whole, some have likened this appearance to a half-peeled banana with its skin curved alongside.

Duplex scan sonography of renal artery stenosis. Fingerprint Left Ventricular Dysfunction.

This will diminish the amount of bowel gas and also ensure that the stomach is empty. 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.

The use of the RAR instead of the absolute PSV value is preferable since hypertension itself can cause increased PSV velocities in all the vessels in hypertensive patients [8]. The right renal vein runs in a posteroanterior direction, with a short course to reach the IVC. Screening tests for RAS have improved considerably over the last decade.


Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview.

The first and most important sign is the increase in PSV. The right RA originates from the anterolateral aspect of the aorta and immediately turns posteriorly to course beneath the inferior vena cava IVC. For spectral Doppler, the Doppler gate should be set to include the entire artery lumen and angled with the direction of flow.

A second approach to imaging the left RA is a variation of the flank approach described for the right RA above. If the course of the main RAs is well recognized, angle-corrected velocity estimates can be made. Assessment of restenosis of RA stents is important in the clinical management of individual patients to determine the long-term benefits of the procedure.

Numerous factors, such as age, hypertension and diabetes affect vessel compliance. Comparative accuracy of renal duplex sonographic parameters in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis: The frequency shift depends on the wcodoppler between the vessel and the ultrasound US beam, and on the frequency of the transducer used.

Use of Doppler ultrasonography to predict the outcome of therapy for renal-artery stenosis.
