The use of rotational angiography with 3D reconstruction during renal artery stenting has been studied in 19 patients. The study group (n=10) and the control group (n=9) were identical by gender, age, clinical
manifestation of the disease, the degree of renal artery stenosis. It was established that rotational angiography with 3D reconstruction markedly improves visualization of renal artery stenosis and may be especially helpful in verification of anomalous sources of renal blood supply. Nevertheless, it increases markedly the time required for performing renal artery stenting and increases the contrast volume in comparison with standard and subtraction renography, although does not cause the development of contrast-induced nephropathy. The data regarding the degree of renal artery stenosis obtained during standard subtraction angiography and rotational
angiography show no marked difference.
