Catheter-based renal sympathetic denervation (RDN) has been considered a potential treatment for therapy resistant hypertension (RHT). However, in a randomized placebo-controlled trial, RDN did not le...
Several renal denervation (RDN) systems are currently under investigation for treatment of hypertension by ablation of renal sympathetic nerves. The procedural efficacy of devices, however, is variabl...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the impact of prebifurcation renal denervation in a swine model and assess its safety through optical coherence tomography (OCT). Prebifurcation renal denerva...
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a leading cause of hypertension, renal failure, pulmonary edema, and loss of renal mass. Atherothrombotic renal disease is a well-described entity, known primarily for i...
This is a feasibility study enrolling up to 40 patients in Australia and Europe. The primary aim of the study is to demonstrate the renal denervation with the Symplicity Catheter is safe a...
The purpose of this this study is to investigate the clinical utility of renal denervation in the treatment of ESRD patients with refractory hypertension.
A pilot, single-center, prospective, observational study. The objective is to demonstrate that catheter-based renal denervation using carbon dioxide renal angiography in patients with mode...
The DERENEDIAB study is a proof-of-concept, multi-center, prospective, open, randomized, controlled study of the effectiveness of renal denervation in addition to standardized medical trea...
The purpose of this study is to assess the safety and efficacy of renal denervation with sterile irrigated deflectable ablation catheter used in renal artery in primary hypertension in Chi...
Distention of KIDNEY with the presence of PUS and suppurative destruction of the renal parenchyma. It is often associated with renal obstruction and can lead to total or nearly total loss of renal function.
Conditions in which the KIDNEYS perform below the normal level in the ability to remove wastes, concentrate URINE, and maintain ELECTROLYTE BALANCE; BLOOD PRESSURE; and CALCIUM metabolism. Renal insufficiency can be classified by the degree of kidney damage (as measured by the level of PROTEINURIA) and reduction in GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE. The most severe form is KIDNEY FAILURE. Renal function may deteriorate slowly (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, CHRONIC) or precipitously (RENAL INSUFFICIENCY, ACUTE).
The amount of PLASMA that perfuses the KIDNEYS per unit time, approximately 10% greater than effective renal plasma flow (RENAL PLASMA FLOW, EFFECTIVE). It should be differentiated from the RENAL BLOOD FLOW; (RBF), which refers to the total volume of BLOOD flowing through the renal vasculature, while the renal plasma flow refers to the rate of plasma flow (RPF).
Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
The amount of PLASMA flowing to the parts of the KIDNEY that function in the production of urine. It is the amount of plasma perfusing the KIDNEY TUBULES per unit time, generally measured by P-AMINOHIPPURATE clearance. It should be differentiated from RENAL PLASMA FLOW which is approximately 10% greater than the effective renal plasma flow.
Nephrology - kidney function
Nephrology is a specialty of medicine and pediatrics that concerns itself with the study of normal kidney function, kidney problems, the treatment of kidney problems and renal replacement therapy (dialysis and kidney transplantation). Systemic conditions...
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
