Renal Hypertension

Renal hypertension, also called renovascular hypertension, is elevated blood pressure caused by kidney disease. It is a syndrome which consists of high blood pressure caused by the kidneys' hormonal response to narrowing of the arteries supplying the kidneys (renal artery stenosis). When functioning properly this hormonal axis regulates blood pressure. Due to low local blood flow, the kidneys mistakenly increase blood pressure of the entire circulatory system. It is a form of secondary hypertension  a form of hypertension whose cause is identifiable. This session mainly accounts for the various causes and symptoms of renovascular hypertension, along with its pathogenesis, diagnosis and treatment.

Renovascular hypertension (or "renal hypertension") is a condition which consists of high blood pressure caused by the kidneys' hormonal response to narrowing of the arteries supplying the kidneys. Hypertensive nephropathy (or "Hypertensive kidney disease") is a medical condition referring to damage to the kidney due to chronic high blood pressure. Medications are used first to try to control high blood pressure in renal hypertension. In some people with renal hypertension due to narrowing of the renal artery, even taking three or more medications every day may not adequately control blood pressure. For such cases, Angioplasty or Renal artery stenosis or surgery is done. This widens the artery and improves blood flow. Blood pressure improves in many people who have a procedure or surgery for renal hypertension. Surgery is generally the most effective at correcting renal hypertension.
