Renal stenting does not improve outcomes for renal artery stenosis patients

According to the findings revealed by a national research it was found that the people who are suffering from a narrowing of the arteries or renal artery stenosis, are not able to get suitable and required treatment with the when renal stenting. Instead this old method it has been found that a comprehensive routine of drug and medical therapies provides better results. The study was published in the New England Journal of Medicine. This particular medical process is not as successful as it was believed to be. It is not providing relief and stability to the patients. One of the co-researcher, Lance Dworkin, M.D. Rhode Island Hospital explains, “The use of stenting to treat patients with renal artery stenosis is a treatment that clinicians have disagreed on for some time. Our findings clearly show that renal artery stenting does not confer any benefit for the prevention of clinical events when added to a comprehensive, multi-factorial medical therapy.”
