    CASE REPORT

Suprarenal artery stenosis may be mistaken for renal artery stenosis in Doppler studies

Cianci R., Lai S., Manfredini P., Ciano G., Cerroni F., Stivali G., Di Donato D., Lavini R., Lorenzi F., Zaccaria A.

There are several limitations in using colour-flow-Doppler (CFD) to diagnose renal artery stenosis. This report describes a case of ''false positive'' stenosis of the renal artery diagnosed using CFD. A patient affected by arterial hypertension and with a suspected stenosis of the renal artery was examined using CFD. However, the patient was in fact suffering from suprarenal artery stenosis.
