Abstract [en]

AIM: To analyze time trends in invasive treatment of renovascular disease in one country. METHODS: Data have been analyzed from registrations in the Swedish Vascular Registry. RESULTS: Invasive treatment for renovascular disease contributes around 1% of all vascular surgery within the Swedish Vascular Registry. Over the twenty-year period 1987-2006 the population-based frequency of invasive treatment for renovascular disease has increased; 1 597 procedures have been registered with an increase over time. The age of the treated patients has increased over the period (P<0.001). There has been a shift from open to endovascular procedure and from isolated percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) to PTRA combined with a stent. Complications and mortality are significantly higher in patients undergoing open reconstruction (P<0.01). One year follow-up is incomplete and long-term results are therefore not possible to evaluate through registry-data only. CONCLUSION: Using nation-wide registry data it is possible to analyze time-trends also concerning rare diseases or interventions. The changing pattern toward endovascular treatment of renovascular disease is obvious. Follow-up data at one year are incomplete.
