Condition

Pediatric Renal Vascular Disease

What is renal vascular disease?

The renal arteries carry blood from the aorta, the main artery supplying oxygen-rich blood from the heart, to the kidneys. Renal vascular disease happens when the renal arteries become narrowed or blocked, reducing blood flow to the kidneys.

Reduced blood flow can prevent the kidneys from functioning normally to remove waste from the body. If left untreated, renal vascular disease can cause high blood pressure (hypertension) and chronic kidney disease.
