Acute flash pulmonary oedema (AFPO) is a life-threatening syndrome almost unique to patients with atheromatous renovascular disease (ARVD). Although recurrent AFPO is a widely accepted indication to consider renal revascularization, this is based on a number of case reports/series describing a successful outcome post-procedure. There is limited literature on the pathophysiological mechanisms and treatment effects of revascularization to support this clinical decision making. We report the case… CONTINUE READING
