abstract

  • Early improvement of renal function may be observed in nearly one half of patients subjected to combined aortic and renal revascularization. Nonetheless, renal preservation may not be sustainable in patients with compromised preoperative function. Intervention before marked functional decline remains the best option for minimizing the risk of eventual dialysis.
