Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Spontaneous Renal artery dissection is a rare entity that may remain clinically silent or present with non-specific signs and symptoms, which makes it a diagnostic challenge. It may be associated with certain underlying vascular pathologies, but its occurrence remains idiopathic in the majority of cases. While there are no evidence-based guidelines for its management, blood pressure control and preservation of renal function remain the cardinal goals of therapy.
