Renal Artery Stenosis refers to a narrowing (stenosis) in the renal artery (leading to the kidneys) that restricts blood flow to the kidneys due a build-up of plaque, tissue or other material. Typically, there are no symptoms of the narrowing of renal arteries, but the condition may lead to kidney failure, and in some cases may be the cause of high blood pressure.
Your CiC physician restores blood flow to the kidney using a metal Stent, which is placed using X-Ray guidance. This treatment has been shown to increase the lifespan of the kidney and often improve blood pressure. Stent placement is not limited to the renal arteries – this procedure can provide long-lasting improvements in blood flow to other territories as well.
