OBJECTIVE Percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTA) is one of the standard treatments for renal artery stenosis (RAS). We investigated the frequency and risk factors for restenosis, and its impact on blood pressure (BP) control. METHODS A total of 175 hypertensive patients with RAS [mean age 60 years; 34% women; 30.3% fibromuscular dysplasia (FMD)] with 207 treated renal arteries were included and followed for more than 1 year without reangioplasty. Diagnosis of restenosis was based… CONTINUE READING
