Nitric oxide dependence of renal blood flow in patients with renal artery stenosis.

Abstract

In ischemia, nitric oxide (NO) production is increased, possibly to preserve flow. The role of NO was investigated in hypertensive patients with or without renal artery stenosis (RAS). Fifty-five hypertensive patients scheduled to undergo diagnostic renal angiography underwent mean renal blood flow (MRBF) measurements before and after an intrarenal… (More)
