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 aim is to investigate the safety and potential effect of Low-energy Shockwave Therapy (ESWT) on the transplanted kidney. The treatment consist of ESWT two times a week for three weeks,...
The objective of this clinical trial is to study the early safety and feasibility of the Shockwave Coronary Lithoplasty System. To demonstrate that the Shockwave device can safely and effe...
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,...
This study will use PBV technique to quantitatively assess the improvement of renal perfusion before and after endovascular treatment (EVT) of renal artery stenosis.
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a known cause of secondary hypertension and renal failure. Although renal artery angiography is the gold standard for diagnosing RAS, a simple method to estimate if pati...
It is unclear whether incidental carotid artery calcification (CAC) on radiographs has a defined relationship to clinically significant carotid artery stenosis, and therefore risk of stroke. The prima...
Renal artery stenosis represents a rare cause of neonatal arterial hypertension of renovascular origin, having been described few cases in the literature at this stage of life. Most patients with this...
Low-intensity shockwave therapy (LI-SWT) is suggested as a therapy for promoting tissue regeneration. In pigs, it was recently found that LI-SWT improved renal function after ischaemic injury. Our obj...
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 c...
A nonsurgical treatment that uses either HIGH-ENERGY SHOCK WAVES or low energy ACOUSTIC WAVES to treat various musculoskeletal conditions (e.g., PLANTAR FASCIITIS; TENNIS ELBOW). A probe placed on the skin conducts the shock waves thereby delivering a mechanical force to the body’s tissues.
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).
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.
Surgical therapy of ischemic coronary artery disease achieved by grafting a section of saphenous vein, internal mammary artery, or other substitute between the aorta and the obstructed coronary artery distal to the obstructive lesion.
A complication of INTERNAL MAMMARY-CORONARY ARTERY ANASTOMOSIS whereby an occlusion or stenosis of the proximal SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY causes a reversal of the blood flow away from the CORONARY CIRCULATION, through the grafted INTERNAL MAMMARY ARTERY (internal thoracic artery), and back to the distal subclavian distribution.
