[Value of arterioscopy in the prevention of renal artery stenosis after transplantation].

Abstract

Renal artery stenosis is frequent after transplantation. The systematic pre-operative search for arterial injuries by angioscopy allows a reduction in their incidence. The authors report a series of 60 transplantations with pre-operative angioscopy, which revealed benign injuries and two major injuries which were successfully treated surgically. This prevention allows a reduction in the incidence of stenosis from 12 to 6.6% according to a previous series of 210 transplantations without angioscopy.
