The pulsatility index and the resistive index in renal arteries. Associations with long-term progression in chronic renal failure

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

The pulsatility index (PI) and the resistive index (RI) are used as pulsed-wave Doppler measurements of downstream renal artery resistance. PI and RI have been found to correlate with renal vascular resistance, filtration fraction and effective renal plasma flow in chronic renal failure. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the potential relationship between these indices and the rate of decline in renal function, as reflected by changes in different parameters of renal function in patients with chronic renal failure.
