Abstract

PURPOSE: Because activation of the renin-angiotensin system leads to an increase in oxidative stress, the authors investigated nitric oxide (NO; nitrite + nitrate), superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels and the effect of endovascular treatment on these parameters in patients with atherosclerotic renovascular hypertension. The relationship of NO with blood pressure and renal functional indexes was also investigated.
