Doppler ultrasound and renal artery stenosis: An overview

Doppler and ultrasound methods for diagnosis. Most of the course of the vessels is then displayed in blue. In this case, the stenosis produces a significant decrease in renal blood flow.

Lower frequency transducers will have better sonographic penetration, but there is a trade-off of decreased spatial resolution.

Ultrasound and other modalities. Logiasd M. Atherosclerotic ischemic renal disease.

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

The intra-examiner variability was good correlation 0. Color-Doppler US CDUS is a noninvasive, repeatable, relatively inexpensive diagnostic procedure which can accurately screen for renovascular diseases if performed by an expert.

Fingerprint Left Ventricular Dysfunction. Renal arteries in patients at risk of renal arterial stenosis: Tardus means slow and ecodopplee and parvus means small and little.


Tardus refers to the fact that systolic acceleration of the waveform is slow with consequent increase in time to reach the systolic peak. Once the vein is identified, the artery will often be apparent as a smaller vessel directly behind it, coursing in the opposite direction.

Abstract Renovascular disease is a complex disorder, most commonly caused by fibromuscular dysplasia and atherosclerotic diseases. Diagnostic role of new Doppler index assessment of renal artery stenosis. The relation between PW Doppler quantitative indexes and left ventricular ejection fraction LVEFcreatinine clearance, and age, was also assessed. Color change is seen shortly after the origin, where the direction of the flow is directed posteriorly.

Proximal criteria are direct signs obtained at the site ecodkppler the stenosis.

Main indications include cases where Doppler trace is difficult to obtain in basal conditions because of the overlying tissues, calcifications or weakness of the signal. Predictive role of Duplex Doppler ultrasonography in the diagnosis of acute renal obstruction in patients with unilateral renal colic. RAS is the most common potentially reversible and curable cause of secondary hypertension and renal failure. Support Center Support Center.

Duplex scan sonography of renal artery stenosis. Ultrasound of renal vessels. In this case, the patient is placed in the right lateral decubitus position, and with scanning through the kidney, the main RA is followed back towards the aorta. MRA and spiral CTA are less suitable for assessing restenosis because of artifacts caused by the stent material. Contrast agents microbubbles do not undergo renal filtration or tubular excretion and, on the whole, they can be considered as purely vascular tracers.


Technical failure is reported to be due to severe obesity, the use of older US ecoddoppler, excessive bowel gas or poor flow in the main RA due to rrenali renal impairment. Romanoa E. Creatinine clearance was determined in each patient. The proximal right RA is not only deep in the abdomen but it also lies perpendicular to the Doppler beam in the usual transverse scan plane [8,9,10].

The third criterion is identification of RAs with no detectable Doppler signal, ecodopppler finding than indicates occlusion. Stenosis of the renal artery: Each of these windows has limitations, which are dependent on individual body habitus and several other variables, such as the ability of the patients to hold their breath. However, when is investigation of accessory RAs required?
