Evaluate the efficacy and safety of Renal Artery Embolization (RAE) for Iatrogenic Renal Vascular Injuries (IRVI) management at our institution in the last 5 years.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: The British journal of radiology
Iatrogenic vascular injuries during radical nephrectomy are rarely reported. In the case of an injury of the superior mesenteric artery, the consequences for the patient are potentially catastrophic. ...
The purpose of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of ethylene vinyl alcohol (EVOH) copolymer (Onyx, Medtronic) for embolization for acute renal hemorrhage. Between October 2006 and June...
Blunt renal vascular traumatic injury is uncommon, and most injuries can be managed conservatively in a patient who is clinically stable. Pseudoaneurysm or active bleeding at presentation is rare and ...
Efforts to achieve optimal seal during endovascular aortic aneurysm repair (EVAR) may produce partial coverage of the lowest renal artery and in some cases even occlusion. This coverage might alter th...
We report a case of right renal artery originating from the thoracic aorta with normal position of the right kidney. Although this anomaly is rare, vascular, thoracic, and urological surgeons should b...
Laparoscopic partial nephrectomy (LPN) is often reserved for patients with a small peripheral tumour, in the hands of an experienced surgeon since it demands a high degree of endoscopic sk...
Background: Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) is associated with progressive loss of renal function and is one of the most important causes of renal failure in the elderly. Cur...
Randomized, prospective, feasibility study to begin evaluating the efficacy, safety, and cost of using either coils or vascular plugs (VPs) for proximal splenic artery embolization in the ...
A multicenter prospective registry planned to recruit more than 5 000 patients with renal artery stenosis was carried out in China. This primary purpose of this study was to evaluate the s...
The purpose of the study is to determine potential utility of renal fractional flow reserve in prognosis predicting after renal stent implantation.
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).
Left RENAL VEIN compression between the AORTA, ABDOMINAL and the SUPERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY. Variable symptoms include HYPERTENSION, RENOVASCULAR; HEMATURIA; and VARICOSE VEINS.
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.
Inflammation of the renal glomeruli (KIDNEY GLOMERULUS) that can be classified by the type of glomerular injuries including antibody deposition, complement activation, cellular proliferation, and glomerulosclerosis. These structural and functional abnormalities usually lead to HEMATURIA; PROTEINURIA; HYPERTENSION; and RENAL INSUFFICIENCY.
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...
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
