Transplant renal stenosis (TRAS) is a serious complication associated with graft loss. Selective carbon dioxide angiography allows for effective diagnosis and therapy with the use of minimal to no contrast agent. This study sought to evaluate the efficacy of the adjunctive use of carbon dioxide angiography in the treatment of TRAS.

The common cause of renal artery stenosis in young is fibromuscular dysplasia or Takayasu arteritis. Recanalized thrombus, on the other hand, is a rare cause for renal artery stenosis in young patient...
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a common cause of secondary hypertension (HTN) and may lead to resistant (refractory) HTN despite guideline directed medical therapy. Although randomized controlled tria...
To investigate the correlation between carotid artery stenosis (CAS) measured by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and the coronary stenosis (CS) determined by computed tomography angiography (CTA).
Patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) have a higher incidence of coronary artery disease (CAD). Hence, it is crucial to evaluate CAD before renal transplantation. This study compares the utilit...
Ectopic renal artery, a rare congenital anomaly, presents a challenge in open surgery and endovascular repair for abdominal aortic lesions. To preserve the abnormal main blood supply and renal functio...
All patients referred for coronary angiography will simultaneously be evaluated for renal artery stenosis and then stenosis more than 50% will be analyzed according to clinical conditions,...
Stenosis of the renal graft arteries occurs in 1 to 26% of cases and can damage the graft. Endovascular treatment is first-line treatment. The main objective of this study is to identify t...
The anastomotic and peripheral stenosis of the transplanted kidney artery is one of the most important causes of graft failure in renal transplantation. The injury of vascular intima and t...
The primary objective of this study is to compare the safety and performance of the Palmaz Genesis™ balloon expandable stent, with or without sirolimus coating in the treatment of renal ...
The clinical investigation is a prospective, international, multi-centre, randomized (1:1) trial with follow ups at 2, 6, 12 months and 3 years. The purpose of the study is to evaluate th...
Use of a balloon catheter for dilatation of an occluded artery. It is used in treatment of arterial occlusive diseases, including renal artery stenosis and arterial occlusions in the leg. For the specific technique of balloon dilatation in coronary arteries, ANGIOPLASTY, TRANSLUMINAL, PERCUTANEOUS CORONARY is available.
An enzyme with high affinity for carbon dioxide. It catalyzes irreversibly the formation of oxaloacetate from phosphoenolpyruvate and carbon dioxide. This fixation of carbon dioxide in several bacteria and some plants is the first step in the biosynthesis of glucose. EC 220.127.116.11.
Narrowing or occlusion of the RENAL ARTERY or arteries. It is due usually to ATHEROSCLEROSIS; FIBROMUSCULAR DYSPLASIA; THROMBOSIS; EMBOLISM, or external pressure. The reduced renal perfusion can lead to renovascular hypertension (HYPERTENSION, RENOVASCULAR).
A family of zinc-containing enzymes that catalyze the reversible hydration of carbon dioxide. They play an important role in the transport of CARBON DIOXIDE from the tissues to the LUNG. EC 18.104.22.168.
Catalyzes the decarboxylation of an alpha keto acid to an aldehyde and carbon dioxide. Thiamine pyrophosphate is an essential cofactor. In lower organisms, which ferment glucose to ethanol and carbon dioxide, the enzyme irreversibly decarboxylates pyruvate to acetaldehyde. EC 22.214.171.124.
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
Organ transplantation is the moving of an organ from one body to another or from a donor site to another location on the patient's own body, for the purpose of replacing the recipient's damaged or absent organ. The emerging field of regenerative ...
