Beta-Blocker Use Is Associated with Higher Renal Tissue Oxygenation in Hypertensive Patients Suspected of Renal Artery Stenosis.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Chronic renal hypoxia influences the progression of chronic kidney disease (CKD). Blood oxygen level-dependent (BOLD) magnetic resonance (MR) is a noninvasive tool for the assessment of renal oxygenation. The impact of beta-blockers on renal hemodynamics and oxygenation is not completely understood. We sought to determine the association between… (More)
