ENGELHORN, Carlos Alberto; ENGELHORN, Ana Luiza  e  CASSOU, Maria Fernanda. Renal artery stenosis: need for validation of diagnostic criteria in the vascular laboratory. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2005, vol.4, n.3, pp.243-248. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492005000300005.

OBJECTIVE: To validate the diagnostic criteria of color Doppler ultrasound in the identification of hemodynamically significant stenoses in renal arteries. METHODS: The color Doppler ultrasound was used to prospectively study 137 renal arteries of 69 adult patients suspected of having renovascular arterial hypertension. The results of the color Doppler ultrasound assessment were double-blindly compared to the arteriography. Cut-off values (ROC curve) were defined for systolic velocity, diastolic velocity and renal-aortic ratio, which better identify hemodynamically significant stenoses, at a Doppler angle of 60º. RESULTS: Peak systolic velocity higher than 250 cm/s was the parameter for greater accuracy (87.2%) in the identification of hemodynamically significant stenoses, followed by the renal-aortic ratio greater than 3.2 (85.6%) and peak diastolic velocity higher than 48 cm/s (70.4%). CONCLUSIONS: Parameters recommended in the literature must be validated in every vascular laboratory. For the ultrasound device and population included in this study, the diagnostic criteria for hemodynamically significant stenoses of renal arteries must be readjusted to systolic velocity > 250 cm/s and renal-aortic ratio > 3.2, at a Doppler angle of 60º.
