About the book

Renal Artery disease is one of the main causes of systemic arterial hypertension. Among its etiologies are atherosclerosis, fibromuscular dysplasia, Takayasu arteritis, and others. These diseases may evolve into stenosis, occlusion or aneurysms of the renal arteries. Atherosclerotic renovascular disease is the main cause of secondary hypertension. It is directly related to ischemic nephropathy, representing 5 to 15% of the adult dialytic population, increasing the rates of morbid-mortality significantly. The natural development of the disease reveals progression rates of 4 to 12% each year. In the last decades, technological advances in both imaging diagnosis and treatment, have improved the prognosis of patients, leading to earlier medical interventions. For the identification of renal vascular disease, adequate images techniques, as well as the capture of quality images, are of utter importance. This book aims to address the main aspects of the renovascular disease, their findings, and current treatment.
