    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Populärvetenskaplig sammanfattning på svenska (Comprehensive summary in Swedish) Uppföljning av blodtryck (BT), medicinering och njurfunktion efter endovaskulär behandling av njurartärsteno's Bakgrund Förträngning av njuren's tillförande blodkärl, njurartärsteno's (RAS), är den vanligaste sekundära formen av högt BT (hypertension) och svarar för ca 1-5% av hypertensionsfallen. Höggradig förträngning av njurartären kan via nedsatt genomblödning av njurarna även leda till nedsatt njurfunktion. READ MORE
