Hi, Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum.
Renal arteriography which is also known as Renal Angiography
is a special x-ray of the blood vessels of the kidneys. Kindly don’t worry as it absolutely a safe and commonly done Procedure by nephrologists or Urologists. It is cone to rule out any blood clots
in the renal arteries and if the Kidneys are functioning properly because the Kidneys play a vital part in controlling Blood Pressure. The Doctor will clean and shave the area of the body near the groin and then place a needle into the artery
. A local anesthetic
will be put on the area before the needle is inserted. Once the needle is in the proper position, a thin wire passes through it. The needle is taken out, and a long, narrow, flexible tube called a catheter is put in its place. An instrument called a fluoroscope sends special x ray
images of the body to a TV monitor, The test uses a special dye called contrast medium because The blood vessels of the kidneys are hard to see with ordinary x rays. The dye flows through the catheter into the kidney artery. The catheter is removed after the x rays are taken. Pressure is immediately applied to the area for 10 to 15 to stop the bleeding. After that time, the area is checked and a bandage is applied. He should keep his leg straight for 6 hours after the procedure.
Kindly speak to his Doctor and go ahead. Ask him to exercise regularly and limit his salt intake. He should eat healthy nutritious balanced diet which should include fresh fruits and Green leafy vegetables.
I Wish him Good Health, Take Care.
