Renal Artery Stenosis of the Transplanted Kidney

Main Article Content

O.M. Korychenskyi


The article describes the results of observation of the patient with stenosis of the main artery of the transplanted kidney before and after balloon dilation of stenosis. The kidney was studied by Ultrasound, Doppler and Share Wave Elastography (SWE). There is a significant difference between the stiffness of the renal parenchyma, depending on the condition of blood flow. Recovery perfusion parenchyma leads to increased stiffness by 52% of the initial value.
