BACKGROUND Changes in renal artery and renal parenchyma perfusion are believed to correlate with severity of hypertension and worsened renal function, but population-based studies of these associations are not available. This study examines relationships between parameters derived from renal duplex sonography (RDS), blood pressure (BP), and excretory renal function in a population-based cohort of elderly Americans. METHODS Through an ancillary study to the Cardiovascular Health Study, 758… CONTINUE READING
