Benign Hypertensive Arteriolar Nephrosclerosis

The benign hypertensive arteriolar nephrosclerosis is a progressive kidney damage caused by poorly controlled chronic hypertension. Symptoms and complaints may be chronic kidney disease develop (eg. As loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, itching, drowsiness or confusion), as well as findings of organ damage by hypertension. The diagnosis is primarily clinical and supported by sonography and routine laboratory tests. Treatment consists of a strict control of blood pressure and preserving renal function.

The benign hypertensive arteriolar nephrosclerosis caused by chronic hypertension caused damage to small blood vessels, glomeruli, renal tubules and interstitial tissue. As a result, a progressive chronic kidney disease develops.

The benign hypertensive arteriolar nephrosclerosis caused by chronic hypertension caused damage to small blood vessels, glomeruli, renal tubules and interstitial tissue. As a result, a progressive chronic kidney disease develops. Benign nephrosclerosis proceeds only in a few patients to end stage renal disease. But because chronic hypertension and benign nephrosclerosis are so common, benign nephrosclerosis is one of the most common diagnoses in patients with end-stage renal disease. It is referred to as benign, to distinguish them from malignant arteriolar nephrosclerosis, which is a synonym for a hypertensive emergency. Risk factors include Older age Poorly controlled moderate to severe hypertension Other kidney disease (eg., Diabetic nephropathy) Dark-skinned people are at increased risk. It is unclear whether the risk is increased because one hypertension treated badly is more common in them, or because black people are genetically susceptible to hypertension-induced renal damage. Symptoms and complaints may develop symptoms and discomfort of chronic kidney disease, such as loss of appetite, nausea, vomiting, itching, drowsiness or confusion, weight loss and a bad taste in the mouth. Findings of organ damage caused by hypertension can manifest themselves within the vasculature of the eyes, skin, CNS and in the periphery. Diagnosis hypertension history of blood tests indicate kidney failure signs of hypertensive target organ damage No other cause of chronic kidney disease, the diagnosis can be made when routine blood tests indicate a deterioration of renal function (eg. As increased creatinine and BUN, hyperphosphatemia) in hypertensive patients. The diagnosis is usually made medical history and physical examination of the image hypertension-related organ damage (eg. As retinal changes, left ventricular hypertrophy). Hypertension should be available before the start of proteinuria and kidney failure, and there should be no other clinically suspected cause of kidney failure. Urine tests should not to other causes of renal failure point (z. B. glomerulonephritis, hypertensive emergency). When urinalysis few cells or cylinders should be detectable in the sediment, and the protein excretion is usually <1 g / day (it is sometimes higher and in the nephrotic range). The ultrasound examination should be performed to rule out other causes of kidney failure. Here, the kidney size can be reduced. A kidney biopsy is done only in case of unclear diagnosis.
