Renal Artery Stenosis (cont.)
Regardless of the treatment, minimizing risk factors for further artery
narrowing is critical. Decreasing the likelihood of further stenosis may be
achieved by controlling:
- lipid levels,
- diabetes, and
- stopping smoking.
The chance of restenosis is also dependent on the severity of the condition.
The more severe the stenosis at the time of diagnosis, the more likely the
artery is to completely occlude in the future.
