The benefit of balloon angioplasty, with or without stenting, for the treatment of patients with renal artery stenosis remains controversial. A number of randomized controlled trials have attempted to determine its efficacy but the matter remains unclear. A 2014 Cochrane Review, which combined data from eight trials, showed homogeneity amongst the trials with no significant benefit shown. This systematic review replicates the same research methods and meta-analysis while expanding it to include papers betwe...
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a common cause of secondary hypertension. The most common aetiology is atherosclerosis; however, other causes like fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD) and Takayasu arteritis (TA) are also frequently encountered. The lesion characteristics and its response to percutaneous intervention depend upon the aetiology of RAS. Optical coherence tomography (OCT) is an excellent imaging modality to analyse coronary lesions during percutaneous coronary interventions. The data regarding the utili...
To characterize capillary perfusion and tissue diffusion changes in transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS) with diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI).
Renovascular disease (RVD) produces chronic underperfusion of the renal parenchyma and progressive ischemic injury. Metabolic abnormalities often accompany renal ischemia, and are linked to poorer renal outcomes. However, the mechanisms of injury in kidneys exposed to the ischemic and metabolic components of RVD are incompletely understood. We hypothesized that coexisting renal artery stenosis (RAS) and metabolic syndrome (MetS) would exacerbate mitochondrial damage, aggravating poststenotic kidney injury i...
Carotid artery kinking is a frequent finding in duplex ultrasonography. However, isolated morphological changes without significant carotid stenosis is rarely symptomatic. Neck pain is a rare symptom in patients with carotid artery kinks. The vascular etiology in patients with persistent neck pain is usually overlooked. A fifty-eight-year-old female patient with chronic neck pain presented to our clinic. Following multidisciplinary team review, the symptoms were found due to the kinking of the internal caro...
Revascularization does not restore renal function in most patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS), likely because of inflammation and fibrosis within the stenotic kidney. Low-energy shockwave therapy (LE-SWT) stimulates angiogenesis in the stenotic kidney, but its ability to improve renal function and structure after revascularization remains unexplored. We tested the hypothesis that a LE-SWT regimen before percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) would enable PTRA to restore ren...
Background Early rapid declines of kidney function may occur in patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis with institution of medical therapy. The causes and consequences are not well understood. Methods and Results Patients enrolled in the medical therapy-only arm of the CORAL (Cardiovascular Outcomes With Renal Artery Lesions) study were assessed for a rapid decline (RD) in estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR), defined as a ≥30% decrease from baseline to either 3 months, 6 months, or bo...
Renal arteriovenous fistula with renal artery aneurysms and dilated renal veins presents as an infrequent lesion. Endovascular therapy has recently been considered the first-line treatment for these conditions. We report a case of a patient with idiopathic renal arteriovenous fistula concomitant with multiple renal artery aneurysms that was successfully treated by the placement of a covered stent.
Pseudoaneurysms of the renal artery are fairly uncommon and mostly asymptomatic. They develop mostly in the right renal artery and in female patients.
Renal artery intramural haematoma (IMH) is a rare cause of renal artery obstruction after stenting. Diagnosis and treatment are difficult as there are only a few cases reported.
Synchronous Carotid Endarterectomy and Coronary Artery Bypass Graft (CABG) versus staged Carotid Artery Stenting and CABG for Patients with Concomitant Severe Coronary and Carotid Stenosis: a Systematic Review and Meta-analysis.
Due to the systemic nature of atherosclerosis, medium and large arteries at different sites are commonly simultaneously affected. As a result, severe coronary artery disease (CAD) requiring coronary artery bypass graft (CABG) frequently coexists with significant carotid stenosis that warrants revascularization.
Effects of superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery bypass on hemodynamics and clinical outcomes in the patients with atherosclerotic stenosis in the intracranial segment of internal carotid artery and middle cerebral artery.
To observe the effects of superficial temporal artery-middle cerebral artery bypass (STA-MCA bypass) on hemodynamics and clinical outcomes in the patients with atherosclerotic stenosis in the intracranial segment of internal carotid artery and (or) middle cerebral artery.
Vascular complications such as renal artery or renal vein thrombosis and laceration, and iliac artery dissection are rarely encountered following renal transplantation. A timely management of these vascular complications is important to prevent ischemic injury of a transplanted kidney. We hereby report a 60-year-old male who had acute renal dysfunction due to iatrogenic left external iliac artery dissection, following renal transplantation. An endovascular stenting of dissected iliac artery resulted in bris...
This article will review the major clinical trials related to coronary intervention that were released in 2018. Areas of interest include lesion assessment, novel stent design, acute coronary syndromes (ACSs), and major breakthroughs in chronic total occlusion interventions.
Fenestrated and branched endovascular aortic repair (F/B-EVAR) is associated with a high degree of technical and clinical success. Despite this, studies have also reported high reintervention rates, and these are often related to the bridging stent grafts. Often new devices appear on the market before they have been tested in the bridging stent graft position. This review aims to assess the current literature on bridging stent grafts and discuss complications, illustrated by case reports. Complications repo...
To summarize and define the most appropriate diagnostic methods and therapeutic options for ruptured renal artery aneurysms in pregnancy based on rarely published data.
Third WHO Global Consultation on Regulatory Requirements for Xenotransplantation Clinical Trials, Changsha, Hunan, China December 12-14, 2018: "The 2018 Changsha Communiqué" The 10-Year Anniversary of The International Consultation on Xenotransplantation.
Cervical internal carotid artery (ICA) atherosclerotic plaque and stenosis is often asymmetric. We hypothesized that hyoid bone proximity to the ICA also may be asymmetric and may increase the risk of traumatic endothelial injury and accelerate atherosclerotic stenosis.
A non-bifurcating cervical carotid artery (NBCCA) is a rare anatomical variation of the carotid artery which directly arises from the common carotid artery (CCA) without forming a bifurcation. A rare case of an NBCCA associated with middle cerebral artery (MCA) stenosis is reported herein.
It is unknown whether treatment in very early/early systemic sclerosis (SSc) can affect long-term outcomes. A case-based review was conducted (i) to assess the effect of rituximab (RTX) in very early SSc and (ii) to explore how many clinical trials in SSc targeted early disease and whether treatment of these patients led to better clinical outcomes. We identified cases of very early SSc from our department and performed a search in MEDLINE and Scopus databases for clinical trials in SSc during 2005-2018. Tw...
Primary tracheal resection in appropriately selected patients with tracheal stenosis achieves >90% success rate. Risk factors for complications have been identified, making some patients high risk for this procedure. Herein is a review and discussion of a novel treatment method for tracheal stenosis utilizing a prefabricated composite auricular cartilage graft embedded in a supraclavicular artery island flap (pSCAIF) for tracheal reconstruction in high-risk patients.
Renal angioplasty and stenting (PTRAs) resolves renal artery stenosis, but inconsistently improves renal function, possibly due to persistent parenchymal damage. We developed a bioengineered fusion of a drug delivery vector (elastin-like polypeptide, ELP) with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and showed its therapeutic efficacy. We tested the hypothesis that combined ELP-VEGF therapy with PTRAs improves renal recovery more efficiently than PTRAs alone by protecting the stenotic renal parenchyma. U...
Takayasu arteritis (TA) is a nonspecific and chronic inflammatory vasculitis that mainly affects the aorta and its main branches, resulting in stenosis or occlusion of the aorta or its main branches with related symptoms. Up to 60% of TA patients have renal artery involvement, which often lead to refractory hypertension (HTN) and impaired renal function. Surgical repair and endovascular intervention are commonly employed in clinical practice. Surgical bypass with prosthetic or autologous vein graft is prefe...
Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) have stringent inclusion criteria and may not fully represent patients seen in everyday clinical practice. Real-world data (RWD) can provide supportive evidence for the effectiveness of medical interventions in more heterogeneous populations than RCTs. Sunitinib is a widely used first-line treatment for patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC).
