Does early detection of suspected atherosclerotic renovascular hypertension change outcomes
Metadata[+] Show full item record
We found no evidence for changed outcomes from early detection of renal artery stenosis (RAS). Treatment of RAS in refractory hypertension modestly improves blood pressure control. There was a trend toward improved clinical outcomes but studies were underpowered to demonstrate this (strength of recommendation [SOR]: A, based on systematic review of RCTs).
