Abstract

Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) is an important and common clinical manifestation of systemic atherosclerosis. The clinical implications of ARAS include arterial hypertension, irreversible impairment of renal function and recurrent flash pulmonary edema. The aim of this article is to discuss: 1) the efficiency of two principal therapeutic approaches in ARAS - renal artery revascularization and pharmacological (conservative) treatment; 2) clinical evaluation of patients with ARAS; 3) factors that are important in the choice of optimal treatment.
