ABSTRACT
Percutaneous noncatheter brachial or axillary artery injection is the safest and simplest method of performing renal arteriography, especially in patients over 50 years of age. It is ideal for investigation of hypertensive patients with suspected renal artery disease. The Seldinger technique (transfemoral approach) has a higher major and minor complication rate and a large percentage of persons over 50 years of age are not amenable to this procedure because of arteriosclerosis or vascular disease. It is recommended only in persons under 50 years of age or persons without vascular disease when a greater contrast is required or a selective injection is to be done. The translumbar technique should only be performed by those very experienced with this method. From the legal standpoint the procedure has received a poor reputation. The radiologist should perform or be thoroughly trained in the method of examination, since the technical performance influences the entire examination. When complications arise they are often due to inexperience in the use of these techniques.
