Usefulness of wide pulse pressure as a predictor of poor outcome after renal artery angioplasty and stenting.


Renal artery stenosis is a common cause of secondary hypertension and ischemic nephropathy. Percutaneous angioplasty and stent placement has allowed select patients with renal artery stenosis to use fewer antihypertensive agents and improve or stabilize renal function. The associations of baseline systolic, diastolic, and pulse pressures (PPs) with outcomes… (More)
