Abstract: Background and purpose Flow velocity oscillation rate (FVOR) of the renal interlobar vein has been reported to be decreased in patients with urinary obstruction or diabetic nephropathy, and increased in those with hypertension during pregnancy. To clarify the clinical role of the renal interlobar venous FVOR, we investigated the flow velocity patterns of the renal vessels in patients with hypertension (HT) and/or diabetes (DM). Methods and results Pulsed-wave Doppler sonography was performed in 34 patients: 15 with HT, 10 with DM, and nine with both HT and DM (HT-DM). Each FVOR of the right and left interlobar veins was closely and positively correlated with the ipsilateral interlobar arterial resistive index (RI), especially in the HT group, but not with the estimated glomerular filtration rate. The right interlobar venous FVOR was decreased in the DM and HT-DM groups compared to the HT group. Conclusion The renal interlobar venous FVOR is strongly influenced by the arterial RI in HT patients, and is reduced in DM patients without an obvious relationship with diabetic nephropathy. These findings should be noted for the clinical application of renal interlobar venous flow analysis.
