Doppler flow-velocity analysis of renal arteries in left ventricular dysfunction

Contrast-enhanced ultrasound of the kidneys. In most cases the anterior approach is used to evaluate the main RAs. Thus, it cannot be established from the present data which of the two approaches is better.

Assessment of restenosis of RA stents is important in the clinical management of individual patients to determine the long-term benefits of the procedure. However, although the presence of this finding is helpful in forming the diagnosis, its absence does not exclude RAS. If the diameter of the renal artery is 4. Looking at the RAs and the aorta as a whole, some have likened this appearance to a half-peeled banana with its skin curved alongside.

However, when a discrepancy exists between clinical data and the results of Doppler US, additional tests are mandatory. Moreover, the evaluation of the resistive index RI at Doppler US may be very useful in RAS affected patients for predicting the response to revascularization.


Fingerprint Left Ventricular Dysfunction. Owing to its invasive character and the substantial costs involved, angiography is not used as a screening method but as a guide for therapeutic transluminal angioplasty. Renal artery duplex ultrasonography as a screening and surveillance tool to detect renal artery stenosis: Another advantage of US over other modalities is its ability to predict which patients will benefit from therapeutic correction of RAS.

The decubitus position is essential, because the kidney often falls towards the midline and acts as its own window [8,9]. Several articles have shown excellent results with this indirect technique [9,10,11,14,17] and a slow systolic upstroke or AI the upstroke of the systolic peak adjusted to the transmitted frequencyan increase in AT the interval measured in seconds between the onset of the wave and the initial systolic peak and loss of the early systolic peak ESP appear to be the most useful parameters [27].

The resistive index RI measures the degree of intrarenal arterial impedance and is calculated using the following formula: The intra-examiner variability was good correlation 0.

Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview.

The right renal vein runs in a posteroanterior direction, with a short course to reach the IVC. Particularly, the atherosclerotic form is a progressive disease that may lead to gradual and silent loss of renal function. Other authors [26] found that renal-interlobar ratio RIRi. The RAs originate from the lateral sides of the aorta Fig.

We analyzed the renal artery flow-velocity in patients with left ventricular dysfunction and normal controls by pulsed-wave PW color-guided Doppler technique. Tardus refers to the fact that systolic acceleration of the waveform is slow with consequent increase in time to reach the systolic peak. Support Center Support Center. Contrast-enhanced US examination showed proximal stenosis in the left renal artery arrow.


Axial section of the midepigastric region showing the origin of both RAs.

Comparative accuracy of renal duplex sonographic parameters in the diagnosis of renal artery stenosis: If the course of the main RAs is well recognized, angle-corrected velocity estimates can be made. Spectral Doppler waveform of the stenotic area in the right RA.

Intrinsic renal diseases i. Examination technique and normal anatomy The procedure begins with the patient in the supine position and the head of the bed elevated about 30 degrees. CDUS follow-up to assess for restenosis may be warranted in patients after stent placement for RAS, even in the absence of clinical signs of restenosis Fig.

Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview

Scodoppler values in the main RA are higher in the hilar region 0. Diagnostic role of new Doppler index assessment of renal artery stenosis. The pathologic causes of RAS include atherosclerosis, fibromuscular dysplasia FMDarteritis, dissection and neurofibromatosis.
