BACKGROUND Percutaneous renal artery angioplasty and/or stenting (RA-PTAS) is increasingly being used as an alternative to surgery for renal artery revascularization. Unfortunately, renal function responses after RA-PTAS appear to be inferior to those observed after surgical revascularization both in terms of improving and preventing deterioration of renal function postintervention. Atheroembolism during RA-PTAS has been postulated as a potential cause for the disparate results. Strategies to… CONTINUE READING
