Background: In atherosclerotic renal artery disease, the benefit of revascularization is controversial. A clinical decision-making process based on a multidisciplinary meeting was formalized in the Lyon university hospital. Objectives: To investigate whether this decisional process ensured a clinical benefit to patients assigned to renal revascularization. Methods: Single-centre retrospective cohort study, including patients diagnosed from April 2013 to February 2015 with an atherosclerotic renal artery disease with a peak systolic velocity >180cm/s. For each patient, the decision taken in multidisciplinary meeting (medical treatment or revacularization) was compared to the one guided by international guidelines. Blood pressure values, number of antihypertensive medications, presence of an uncontrolled or resistant hypertension, and glomerular filtration rate at one-year follow-up were compared to baseline values. Safety data were collected. Results: Forty-nine patients were included: 26 (53%) were assigned to a medical treatment and 23 (47%) to a renal revascularization. Therapeutic decision was in accordance with the 2013 American Health Association guidelines and with the 2017 European Society of Cardiology guidelines for 78% and 22% of patients who underwent revascularization, respectively. Patients assigned to revascularization presented a significant decrease in systolic blood pressure (-23±34mmHg, p=0.007), diastolic blood pressure (-12±18mmHg, p=0.007), number of antihypertensive medications (-1.00±1.03, p=0.001), and number of uncontrolled or resistant hypertension (p=0.022 and 0.031) at one-year follow-up. Those parameters were not modified among patients assigned to medical treatment alone. There was no grade 3 adverse event. Conclusion: Based on a multidisciplinary selection of revascularization indications, patients on whom a renal revascularization was performed exhibited a significant improvement of blood pressure control parameters with no severe adverse events.
