OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to investigate the influence of atherosclerosis and age on 4 representative Doppler parameters in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis. METHODS The 4 parameters, renal peak systolic velocity (PSV), renal-aortic ratio, renal-interlobar ratio, and acceleration time, were measured in 208 patients before angiography. The 208 patients were divided into groups according to age and atherosclerosis stratification. The Student t test, 1-way analysis of… CONTINUE READING
