Acute Renal Injury After Renal Artery Stenting

by Haller, Steven Thomas

Abstract (Summary)
Although there is interest in the use of renal artery stenting for renal dysfunction, the frequency, causes, and outcomes of acute injury from renal stenting are not well described. The aim of the current study is to determine the frequency of acute renal injury (defined as a 0.5 rise in serum Cr) 1 month after renal stenting, identify factors associated with acute renal injury, and determine whether renal injury is associated with late clinical events.
