Differential diagnosis of causes of arterial hypertension with the help of ultrasonography and dopplerography in patients with increased arterial pressure
Keywords: dopplerography, duplex scanning, hypertension, high blood pressure, renal arteries
AbstractWith the purpose of diagnosing causes of arterial hypertension were inspected 50 patients. All of them took clinical ultrasound in B-regimen and duplex scanning with Doppler’s colour mapping of renal arteries. Capacious neoplasms (adenomas) of adrenals were diagnosed in 2 patients (4 %). 35 patients (70 %) had normal kidney sizes and structural index. Disease of renal blood circulation in the basic trunk, segmentary and parenchymal arteries was diagnosed in all 35 inspected. Decreasing sizes of one kidney with disease of renal blood circulation were diagnosed in 6 patients (12 %). 9 patients (18 %) had normal kidney sizes but parenchymal thickness and structural index were decreased. High-resistive blood circulation was registered in renal parenchyma of these patients. Combination of causes of arterial hypertension occurred in 15 patients (30 %) .
