Zhu J, Wen K, He H - Pak J Med Sci (2015 Jul-Aug)

Bottom Line: Meanwhile, 30 healthy subjects were selected as the control group.The urinary protein levels of Stage I, II and Stage III hypertensive patients were significantly different from that of the control group (p<0.05).Urinary creatinine levels were similar (p>0.05) in stage I and II but different from control (p<0.05) in stage III.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To evaluate the diagnostic value of urinary protein and creatinine in combination with renal Doppler ultrasound examination in early renal damage of patients with hypertension.

Methods: One hundred twenty two hypertensive patients who were treated in our hospital from December 2013 to June 2014 were selected for this study, including 33, 41 and 48 cases of Stage I, Stage II and Stage III hypertension respectively. Meanwhile, 30 healthy subjects were selected as the control group. They received urinary protein, creatinine and renal Doppler ultrasound examination.

Results: The urinary protein levels of Stage I, II and Stage III hypertensive patients were significantly different from that of the control group (p<0.05). Urinary creatinine levels were similar (p>0.05) in stage I and II but different from control (p<0.05) in stage III. Doppler ultrasound examination showed that Stage I hypertensive patients had similar renal longest diameter (RLD), renal parenchymal thickness (RPT) and ratio of RPT/renal sinus thickness to those of the control group (p>0.05), and RLDs of Stage II hypertensive patients and the control group were not significantly different (p>0.05).

Conclusion: Urinary protein and creatinine levels in combination with renal Doppler ultrasound examination could diagnose early renal damage in patients with hypertension.

Figure 1: Renal blood-flow rates of control and Stage III hypertension groups.

Mentions: The renal blood-flow rates of Stage I and Stage II hypertensive patients (761.48±226.58 and 669.41±149.42 ml/minute respectively) were similar to that of the control group (709.45±125.42 ml/min) (p>0.05), but the rates of Stage III hypertension (404.82±169.52 ml/min) and control groups differed significantly (p<0.01) (Fig.1).
