Abstract

OBJECTIVE: Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is emerging one of the cause of chronic renal failure and end-stage renal disease. The vast majority of cases in elderly are due to atherosclerotic disease. The prevalence of RAS in several population studies varies considerably. The study aimed to examine the frequency and risk factors of atherosclerotic critical RAS in patients with coronary artery disease.
