The presence of plaques in the coronary arteries is a predictor of renal artery stenosis

The presence of plaques in the coronary arteries is a predictor of renal artery stenosisThe presence of plaques in the coronary arteries is a predictor of renal artery stenosis The presence of two or more plaques in the coronary arteries is a reliable predictor of renal artery stenosis v correctable causes of symptomatic hypertension and renal failure. Dr. Peter Kotanko and his colleagues from the University Karl Franzens (Graz, Austria) was revealed stenosis of the renal artery (SPA) in 177 patients with suspected coronary artery disease. To this end, all participants performed abdominal aortography and coronary angiography. As reported in the November issue of the European Heart Journal, 19 patients was found to be clinically significant (at least 50%) one - or two-way SPA. The remaining 158 patients SPA was missing or clinically insignificant. In the first subgroup of patients were older, had higher systolic blood pressure and lower rates of glomerular filtration rate (GFR) and more often had diabetes. Multivariate analysis showed that the decrease in GFR and expressed the defeat of coronary artery disease are independent predictors of SPA. The presence of two or more plaques in coronary vessels predicted SPA with a sensitivity of 84% and specificity of 77%. The positive predictive value result 30%, negative v 98%. The researchers believe that patients with damage to two or more segments of the coronary vessels is desirable abdominal aortography, even if there is no hypertension or renal dysfunction. When these pathological conditions are present, holding aortografii to exclude or confirm the SPA is a must. Source: solvay-pharma.ru.
