Doppler parameters in renal transplant dysfunction :Correlations with histopathologic changes
Primary Graft Dysfunction
Ultrasonography, Doppler, Color
The PSV and EDV of the interlobar artery have statistical correlations with histopathologic types in renal transplant dysfunction. Both the PSV and EDV in interstitial fibrosis/tubular atrophy and vascular/glomerular sclerosis seem lower than those in glomerulopathy without fibrosis. Hence, the PSV and EDV of the interlobar artery may potentially be used as hemodynamic indicators for monitoring the progress of renal transplants.
