Percutaneous transluminal angioplasty of the renal arteries is a commonly performed procedure. The authors report a case of bilateral recanalization and dilation of occluded renal arteries in a young female. In this case, the procedure allowed for conservative management rather than emergency surgery, which would have been exceedingly hazardous to the patient's renal function and life.

    Atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis is the most common cause of renovascular hypertension. Primary treatment of renal artery stenosis includes renal artery balloon angioplasty and, in some cases, renal artery stenting. However, in-stent restenosis occurs in 11% to 39% of patients thus treated....

    Background: It has been reported that renovascular hypertension activates the renin–angiotensin system, leading to an increase in oxidative stress. We sought to determine whether renal-artery angioplasty improves endothelial dysfunction in patients with renovascular hypertension through a...

    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...
