Grand Rounds in Pediatric Nephrology – an ISN-IPNA Sister Centers initiative: Renovascular hypertension in children

  • 2:00 PM CEST

Primary arterial hypertension is an emerging problem in the pediatric population and is often seen in obese children. Among the patients with secondary hypertension, renovascular causes are the third most common cause and are the cause of high blood pressure in 5 – 25% of hypertensive children.  Renovascular hypertension is most associated with fibromuscular dysplasia, starts early in life, and can be asymptomatic for years making it challenging for diagnosis. We will present a patient with renovascular hypertension who initially started treatment in Serbia and continued at Great Ormond Street Hospital for Children where the patient was subsequently, successfully treated.  

Learning objectives:

  • Demonstrate effective techniques for presenting and conducting investigations on patients diagnosed with renovascular hypertension.
  • Evaluate and compare the medical, endovascular, and surgical treatment options available for managing pediatric patients afflicted with renovascular hypertension.
  • Analyze the clinical outcomes and devise strategies for long-term follow-up care in pediatric patients undergoing treatment for renovascular hypertension.
