Left renal artery stenosis

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for the query

It looks like your father is suffering from left renal artery stenosis. Which means that the blood flow to the kidney has reduced significantly. Here is how you should go about it

1. Get a DTPA renal scan to know the functioning of the left kidney
2. If the functioning of the kidney is normal or salvageable after the DTPA scan then you will have to go for stenting of the artery
3. Stenting of the artery is done by cardiologist after a angiogram.

I recommend you to approach Dr Alkhil XXXXXXX of Apollo Hospitals for one stop solution for the problem

I hope I was of help, if you have any further questions please get back to me
