ABSTRACT
It can be affirmed that RVH is a fairly frequent disease which must be suspected more often than has been done up to now. The patient should be selected on the basis of not too restrictive principles, while the precise diagnostic ascertainment should be entrusted to laboratory tests, particularly to renography with radioisotopes, to urography and finally to preparation of vessels in the vicinity of the renal hilum, where research is easier, not traumatizing, and free of complications. We do not deem it possible to give a definite judgment on distant results obtained with conservative surgical therapy of RVH. The time of control which has passed is generally too short to be absolutely pertain of the efficacy of the treatment. Immediate and short range results are good and they encourage us to follow of therapy.
