Conference paper
Part of the Syllabus book series (SYLLABUS)


Renovascular hypertension (RVH) is the result of significant decrease of renal blood flow secondary to a severe arterial lesion (unilateral or bilateral). Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is the most frequent cause of RVH and we will focus on this.
