A rare and overlooked mechanical complication of partial nephrectomy: Accelerated hypertension due to renal artery stenosis.

Turk Kardiyol Dern Ars 2019 Apr;47(3):235-238

Department of Cardiology, Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine, Ankara, Turkey.

Secondary hypertension accounts for 5% to 10% of all hypertensive cases, and renal artery stenosis is one of the most common causes of secondary hypertension. Although atherosclerotic vascular disease and fibromuscular dysplasia are the leading causes of renal artery stenosis, there are other, rare etiologies, such as vasculitis and trauma. A partial nephrectomy is the standard of care treatment option for early stage renal carcinoma patients. Read More

Restoration of wall shear stress in the cephalic vein during extreme hemodynamics.

J Med Eng Technol 2019 Apr 3:1-11. Epub 2019 Apr 3.

b Section of Nephrology, Department of Medicine , University of Chicago , Chicago , IL , USA.

The surgical creation of an artery-vein connection via a Brachicephalic fistula (BCF) in patients with end stage renal disease (ESRD) provides a unique opportunity to study blood vessel response mechanisms to extreme hemodynamic conditions in relatively short timeframes. After BCF creation, the flow rate in the vein increases by an order of magnitude leading to separated flows and corresponding abnormally low, or negative, wall shear stress (WSS) in the curved arch segment of the cephalic vein. Locations of abnormally low WSS are shown to correlate with development of neointimal hyperplasia (NH) and subsequent stenosis. Read More

Mitochondrial Protection Partly Mitigates Kidney Cellular Senescence in Swine Atherosclerotic Renal Artery Stenosis.

Cell Physiol Biochem 2019 ;52(3):617-632

Division of Nephrology and Hypertension, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, USA.

Background/aims: Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) may cause kidney injury and mitochondrial dysfunction, which is linked to cellular senescence. Elamipretide, a mitochondria-targeted peptide, improves renal function in ARAS, but whether it alleviates senescence is unknown. We hypothesized that elamipretide would reduce senescence stenotic kidney (STK) in ARAS. Read More

When and How Should We Revascularize Patients With Atherosclerotic Renal Artery Stenosis?

JACC Cardiovasc Interv 2019 Mar;12(6):505-517

Department of Cardiology at Ochsner Clinic Foundation, New Orleans, Louisiana.

Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis is the leading cause of secondary hypertension and may lead to resistant (refractory) hypertension, progressive decline in renal function, and cardiac destabilization syndromes (pulmonary edema, recurrent heart failure, or acute coronary syndromes) despite guideline-directed medical therapy. Although randomized controlled trials comparing medical therapy with medical therapy and renal artery stenting have failed to show a benefit for renal artery stenting, according to comparative effectiveness reviews by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, the trials may not have enrolled patients with the most severe atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis, who would be more likely to benefit from renal stenting. Because of limitations of conventional angiography, it is critical that the hemodynamic severity of moderately severe (50% to 70%) atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis lesions be confirmed on hemodynamic measurement.

BIOPOLYMER-DELIVERED VASCULAR ENDOTHELIAL GROWTH FACTOR IMPROVES RENAL OUTCOMES FOLLOWING REVASCULARIZATION.

Am J Physiol Renal Physiol 2019 Mar 20. Epub 2019 Mar 20.

Physiology and Biophysics, Medicine, and Radiology, University of Mississippi Medical Center, United States.

Renal angioplasty and stenting (PTRAs) resolves renal artery stenosis, but inconsistently improves renal function, possibly due to persistent parenchymal damage. We developed a bioengineered fusion of a drug delivery vector (elastin-like polypeptide, ELP) with vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), and showed its therapeutic efficacy. We tested the hypothesis that combined ELP-VEGF therapy with PTRAs improves renal recovery more efficiently than PTRAs alone by protecting the stenotic renal parenchyma. Read More

Immersion pulmonary oedema: a cardiological perspective.

Diving Hyperb Med 2019 Mar;49(1):30-40

Corresponding author: Royal Stoke University Hospital, Stoke-on-Trent, ST4 6QG, United Kingdom,

It is postulated that immersion pulmonary oedema (IPE) occurs because of combinations of factors that each increase the hydrostatic pressure gradient between the pulmonary capillaries and the alveoli. The factors, by definition, include the effects of immersion, particularly raised central blood volume and hence cardiac filling pressures. Breathing against a negative pressure is important but the magnitude of the effect depends on the relation of the diver's lung centroid to the source of the breathing gas and the breathing characteristics of diving equipment.

Rationale, design and baseline characteristics of the effect of ticagrelor on health outcomes in diabetes mellitus patients Intervention study.

Clin Cardiol 2019 Feb 20. Epub 2019 Feb 20.

FACT (French Alliance for Cardiovascular Trials), an F-CRIN Network, Département Hospitalo-Universitaire FIRE, AP-HP, Hôpital Bichat, Université Paris-Diderot, Paris, France.

In the setting of prior myocardial infarction, the oral antiplatelet ticagrelor added to aspirin reduced the risk of recurrent ischemic events, especially, in those with diabetes mellitus. Patients with stable coronary disease and diabetes are also at elevated risk and might benefit from dual antiplatelet therapy. The Effect of Ticagrelor on Health Outcomes in diabEtes Mellitus patients Intervention Study (THEMIS, NCT01991795) is a Phase 3b randomized, double-blinded, placebo-controlled trial of ticagrelor vs placebo, on top of low dose aspirin.

Outcome following renal autotransplantation in renal artery stenosis.

Urol Ann 2019 Jan-Mar;11(1):46-52

Department of Urology, Seth GS Medical College and KEM Hospital, Mumbai, Maharashtra, India.

Introduction: With significant advances in the area of interventional radiology, angioplasty and stenting have become preferred first-line treatment in patients with significant renal artery stenosis. However, not all patients have favorable anatomy to undergo minimally invasive treatments, and reconstruction of the renal artery is an option. In select cases, either improved renal function or maintenance of existing function and sometimes resolution of hypertension can follow surgical treatment. Read More

Diagnostic Role of Renal Doppler Ultrasound and Plasma Renin Activity as Screening Tools for Renovascular Hypertension in Children.

J Ultrasound Med 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

Department of Radiology, Seoul National University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Objectives: The diagnostic role of an ultrasound (US) and plasma renin activity (PRA) combination is unknown, despite the usefulness of Doppler US as a screening tool for renovascular hypertension (RVHT). The purpose of this study was to evaluate the diagnostic usefulness of US for RVHT in children stratified according to PRA.

Methods: We identified 336 children who underwent renal Doppler US examinations for hypertension and divided them into a high-renin group (n = 177) and a normal-renin group (n = 159) based on PRA and stratified them by age. Read More

Renal Imaging: Core Curriculum 2019.

Am J Kidney Dis 2019 Apr 15;73(4):552-565. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Radiology, University of Pennsylvania, Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, PA. Electronic address:

Renal imaging has become a fundamental part of clinical care for patients with kidney disease. Imaging strategies for the kidney have been evolving during the past hundred years and have been even more rapidly changing during the past couple of decades due to the development of modern computed tomographic techniques, magnetic resonance imaging, and more sophisticated ultrasonographic techniques, such as contrast-enhanced ultrasonography. Applying the correct radiologic study for the clinical situation maximizes the diagnostic accuracy of the imaging, and a judicious choice between techniques helps limit radiation dose and potential adverse events.

Phlegmasia cerulea dolens as an initial manifestation of a fistula between a ruptured iliac artery aneurysm and the iliac vein.

J Vasc Surg Cases Innov Tech 2019 Mar 28;5(1):41-44. Epub 2019 Jan 28.

Division of Vascular Surgery, Department of Surgery, Graduate School of Medicine, The University of Tokyo, Tokyo, Japan.

Phlegmasia cerulea dolens (PCD) is caused by obstruction of limb venous return that may result in venous gangrene and limb loss. We present a case of a fistula between a ruptured right common iliac artery aneurysm and the left common iliac vein (ilioiliac arteriovenous fistula [AVF]), which initially manifested as left PCD and acute renal failure. Resection of the aneurysm and repair of the AVF immediately improved the PCD and acute renal failure. Read More

Severe acute interstitial nephritis induced by valsartan: A case report.

Medicine (Baltimore) 2019 Feb;98(6):e14428

Department of Nephrology, Tianjin Medical University General Hospital, Tianjin, China.

Rationale: Angiotensin receptor blocker (ARB) can increase serum creatinine or potassium levels in patients with renal insufficiency, renal artery stenosis, heart failure or hypovolemia, but hardly cause severe kidney injury in patients without any risk factors. A case of severe acute interstitial nephritis (AIN) induced by valsartan was reported here.

Patient Concerns: A 62-year-old female with nausea for 1 month and acute deterioration of kidney function for 2 weeks was admitted. Read More

Infrarenal versus Suprarenal Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms: Comparison of Associated Aneurysms and Renal Artery Stenosis.

Ann Vasc Surg 2019 Feb 2. Epub 2019 Feb 2.

Department of Intensive Care and Perioperative Medicine, Jagiellonian University Medical College, Kraków, Poland. Electronic address:

Background: The aim of our study is to assess the prevalence of concomitant arterial abnormalities (true aneurysms of iliac, common femoral, renal, visceral arteries and stenoses of iliac and renal arteries) in patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm, and to evaluate whether the type of the aneurysm (suprarenal versus solely infrarenal) is associated with this prevalence.

Methods: In this retrospective cross-sectional study, we assessed computed tomography angiography scans of 933 patients with abdominal aortic aneurysm, including thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms type II-IV, with no history of abdominal aortic surgery. We compared 2 groups of patients: group 1 (n = 859) with solely infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and group 2 (n = 74) with the suprarenal aneurysm component. Read More
