PURPOSE To develop and evaluate a sequence for breath-hold three-dimensional gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance (MR) angiography of the abdominal aorta. MATERIALS AND METHODS In 63 patients, the abdominal aorta and its branches were imaged for 29, 43, or 58 seconds with breath holding. A fast spoiled gradient-echo sequence was used at 1.5 T during(More)
PURPOSE This study was undertaken to characterize the changing operative treatment of pediatric renovascular hypertension and subsequent outcomes in a 30-year experience at a single institution. METHODS Clinical data were analyzed on 57 pediatric patients, 24 girls and 33 boys, ranging in age from 10 months to 17 years, who underwent operations for(More)
PURPOSE This study was undertaken to characterize the contemporary surgical treatment of pediatric renovascular hypertension. METHODS A retrospective analysis was conducted of the clinical data of 97 consecutive pediatric patients (39 girls, 58 boys), aged from 3 months to 17 years, who underwent operation at the University of Michigan from 1963 to 2006.(More)
BACKGROUND Renal artery aneurysms (RAAs) are rare, with little known about their natural history and growth rate or their optimal management. The specific objectives of this study were to (1) define the clinical features of RAAs, including the precise growth rate and risk of rupture, (2) examine the current management and outcomes of RAA treatment using(More)
Renal Doppler US is used to evaluate suspected vascular causes of hypertension in children, despite mostly unknown diagnostic performance characteristics. To evaluate renal Doppler US for detecting vascular causes of hypertension in children with high clinical suspicion of aortic or renal artery narrowing. We identified pediatric renal Doppler US(More)
Forty pediatric patients (16 girls and 24 boys) 22 months to 17 years old underwent operation for renovascular hypertension. Ostial stenoses were present in 20 children; midrenal lesions were present in eight; and isolated segmental disease was present in 12 patients and was combined with main renal artery stenoses in three patients. Neurofibromatosis(More)
The literature on arterial aneurysms is subject to potential misinterpretation because of inconsistencies in reporting standards. The joint councils of the Society for Vascular Surgery and the North American Chapter of the International Society for Cardiovascular Surgery appointed an ad hoc committee to address this issue.
