OBJECTIVE To assess renal morphology using spiral computed tomographic angiography (CTA) before and 6 months after angioplasty of unilateral atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS). METHODS Spiral CTA scans from 14 hypertensive patients (7 men; mean age 57.4 +/- 13.1 years) with significant RAS were performed before and 6 months after angioplasty; renal length, mean cortical thickness (MCT), cortical area (CA), and medullary length (ML) were measured from the axial slices in the 14… CONTINUE READING
