Abstract

SALAME, Marcelo et al. Ischemic nephropathy. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.4, pp.310-316. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492012000400010.

Ischemic renal disease or ischemic nephropathy related to renovascular disease can progress rapidly and gradually to chronic renal failure. Early diagnosis and treatment is crucial for this clinical condition, because they can prevent occurrence of end-stage renal disease, with consequent need for renal replacement therapy. A decade ago, renovascular hypertension control was the primary objective in the management of patients with renovascular disease. Currently, the goal is addressed primarily to the stabilization and improvement of renal function, in addition to blood pressure control.

Keywords : Ischemic nephropathy; atherosclerosis; renovascular hypertension.
