Treatment for Renovascular Hypertension









Treatment for Renovascular Hypertension starts with attempt to control high blood pressure with ACE inhibitors and ARBs. However, if the disease progresses procedures such as angioplasty, stenting, or renal artery bypass surgery.

What is it?

Renovascular Hypertension treatment is designed to reduce high blood pressure or perform surgery to either open a narrowed artery or bypass an artery. These treatments are aimed to lower the patient’s blood pressure.

How to prepare?

Preparation can vary for these differing treatments. For the blood pressure medication, no real preparation is needed. For the surgical procedure, the patient should discuss medications and other medical conditions they have. The patient should not eat nor drink the night before their surgical procedure.

What happens during the process?

The process also varies for these surgical procedures. The surgeon and his medical team will explain and give instructions and will discuss the specific procedure. The patient will be given either local or general anesthesia. Incisions are made to access the arteries that are blocked and either open the artery with stenting or angioplasty, or use a different healthy blood vessel to bypass the area that is blocked.

Risks and Complications

Possible Risks of these treatments are highly variable but can include:

* Bleeding

* Infection

* Allergic reaction

* Re-blockage of the artery

* Dizziness

* Headache

* Drowsiness

* Diarrhea

* Low Blood pressure

* Weakness

* Cough
