Cardiac outcome in patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (ARAS) undergoing percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) or medical therapy is not yet completely clear. The aim of this study was to perform a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials to compare the effect of PTRA and medical therapy on nonfatal myocardial infarction in patients with ARAS.
We searched for articles reporting cardiovascular outcome, including nonfatal myocardial infarction, in patients with renal artery stenosis randomized to PTRA with/without stenting or medical therapy.
