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.

BACKGROUND: Insufficient elastin synthesis leads to vascular complications and arterial hypertension in children with Williams-Beuren syndrome. Restoring sufficient quantity of elastin should then result in prevention or inhibition of vascular malformations and improvement in arterial blood pressure. METHODS: The aim of this study was to assess the efficacy and safety of minoxidil on Intima Media Thickness (IMT) on the right common carotid artery after twelve-month treatment in patient with Williams-Beuren syndrome. We performed a randomized placebo controlled double blind trial. All participants were treated for 12 months and followed for 18 months. The principal outcome was assessed by an independent adjudication committee blinded to the allocated treatment groups. RESULTS: The principal outcome was available for 9 patients in the placebo group and 8 patients in the minoxidil group. After 12-month treatment, the IMT in the minoxidil group increased by 0.03 mm (95% CI -0.002, 0.06) compared with 0.01 mm (95%CI - 0.02, 0.04 mm) in the placebo group (p = 0.4). Two serious adverse events unrelated to the treatment occurred, one in the minoxidil and 1 in the placebo group. After 18 months, the IMT increased by 0.07 mm (95% CI 0.04, 0.10 mm) in the minoxidil compared with 0.01 mm (95% CI -0.02, 0.04 mm) in the placebo group (p = 0.008). CONCLUSION: Our results suggest a slight increase after 12 and 18-month follow-up in IMT. More understanding of the biological changes induced by minoxidil should better explain its potential role on elastogenesis in Williams-Beuren syndrome.
