    A case of renovascular hypertension (RVH) with severe left renal artery stenosis is reported. This problem was managed by renal endarterectomy and patch angioplasty. During the operation, the authors devised a new idea and applied a Pruitt-Inahara shunt to the abdominal aorta and the distal end...
