Abstract

Renal artery stenosis is a common finding among patients with atherosclerotic disease and its percutaneous treatment with stent implantation is frequently performed by interventional cardiologists and vascular radiologists. However, renal artery in-stent restenosis is not a rare complication and its management is not straightforward. We describe and report angiographic follow-up of an innovative approach to renal artery in-stent restenosis based on combined intravascular ultrasound and drug-eluting balloon treatment.
