Renal Artery Stenosis is a major player in resistant hypertension, often missed until the patient is on several medications with resistant blood pressure. Screening for renal artery stenosis is very important in such cases and a detailed ultrasound study can detect this issue.
This is the case of a 65-year-old patient struggling with elevated blood pressure for many years. Careful assessment by our team at #AHV demonstrated this issue and our Cath Lab team led by Dr. M. Bisharat was able to treat the stenosis in the right renal artery in a short and safe outpatient procedure. The patient’s blood pressure responded quickly to the new stent and was able to drop two out of three blood pressure medications in a few days.
