Identifying Renal Artery Stenosis Symptoms at Dignity Health Central Coast
You may never realize any symptoms before being diagnosed with renal artery stenosis. A Dignity Health Central Coast vascular specialist may detect symptoms during a routine exam or test for this cardiovascular condition.
High blood pressure is often a result of renal artery stenosis. You may develop renal artery stenosis if you fall into the following risk groups:
- High blood pressure after age 50
- Increased high blood pressure
- No response to treatment of blood pressure
- No family history of hypertension
While the cause of renal artery stenosis can vary, not receiving care for a long period of time can increase your chances of kidney failure.
