Renal (Kidney) Angioplasty
Current Postings (5):
Paul, it is difficult to answer your question
without knowing your mother's clinical situation and seeing her angiograms.
But she is clearly someone at high-risk for restenosis. When you say
she had the stent "done again", was a balloon used to open up the original
stent? Or was a second stent put in? The reblocking probably has little
to do with whether she is on Ticlid or Plavix. Your question is a good
one -- have you asked your mother's cardiologist (or whoever did the
stenting)? What did they say?
My mother had a non medicated stent
put in her renal artery and it started blocking up after a month.
she had it done again and
it was blocking a month later she is on ticlid because she has a reaction
to plavix. What could be causing this? THANKS
I was diagnosed for bilateral renal
artery stenosis in Jan. 2003.The block in left renal artery is at
the junction of the branches.
The general advice given by the surgeons I consulted is that angioplasty
may be possible if 'Y' type stent is available. Jan 2003 coronary grafting
was done and I am on regular medication. Can any one give information
on 'Y' stent availability.
I had a relative who was going to the
ER every few weeks unable to breathe from fluid on the lungs -- CHF.
He was given a 50/50 chance
of living -- cardiologist saw a blockage in the renal artery and put
a stent in. That was two years ago. Hasn't been to the ER again!
Can anyone tell me how you feel after
renal angioplasty is over, and does it restenose. This is the first
of many more to go.
Also have severe iliac stenosis. Don't know much about that, I know
i can not walk. Really need a chat room if someone can suggest one
Please. God Bless and thank you.
