Özet

The scientific studies that have been conducted so far highlight that renal resistive index (RI) and aortic knob width (AKW) indicate poor prognosis regarding renal and cardiovascular mortality. But the existence of a direct relationship RI and AKW is unclear. This study aims investigating the relationship between RI and the measured AKW in chest radiography of the patients with hypertensive nephropathy who do not require renal replacement therapy.
