Two patients with systemic arterial hypertension due to ischemia of a solitary functioning kidney were presented. Both patients had stricture of the left renal artery. Additionally, one had the right kidney artery completely occluded and the other underwent a right nephrectomy five years previously. It was the authors' observation that in the presence of stenosis of one of the renal arteries the elimination of the function of the other kidney severely aggravates the clinical picture, and that such patients are especially apt to develop hypertension of extremely serious character. After reconstructive vascular surgery, the blood pressure of both patients returned to normal and they had complete relief from their symptoms.

    A case of pseudo-coaretation of the abdominal aorta associated with renovascular hypertension has been reported. The abdominal aorta of the patient was kinked at the level of L1-L2 without a pressure gradient, which was consistent with pseudo-coarctation of aorta. Both renal arteries arose from...
