ABSTRACT
The article comments on the insufficient evidence to support the choice of angioplasty or surgical revascularization over medical treatment in patients with atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis. The author noted that the patients were likely to have had advanced disease, and without major improvement either surgery or medical treatment.
