This webinar will discuss the epidemiology and management of atherosclerotic renovascular disease, with a focus on renal revascularisation. Clinical cases and randomised controlled trial evidence will be used to explore the indications and important considerations involved in revascularisation decision-making.
Topics explored in this webinar include:
- the main findings and conclusions from the ASTRAL and CORAL trials;
- revascularisation for high-risk cases;
- the role of multidisciplinary team meetings in case selection; and
- a consensus for intervention.
