We believe that presenting with signs and symptoms of cerebral vascular insufficiency and combined have tension should have the benefit of a total arteriographic survey, not only of the cervical cephalic tributary branches and the intracranial circulation, but also renal artery circulation. Conversely, survey arteriographic study of hypertensive patients suspected of having renal stenosis should also have cervicocephalic arteriograms to demonstrate possible stenosis of the cranial arteries. The likelihood of multiple sites of arterial stenosis in a patient with arteriosclerotic disease should he appreciated. A severe stenosis is necessary to cause reduction of blood flow. The additional lowering of systemic blood pressure by antihypertensive drugs or renal artery reconstruction may precipitate severe cerebral damage in a patient with or without cerebral symptoms.
