BACKGROUND: Percutaneous interventions for renal arterial disease can be used to treat a variety of conditions including both atherosclerotic and non-atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis (RAS) as well as endovascular management of renal artery aneurysms (RAA). AIM: We sought to examine the indications, techniques and results of percutaneous renal angioplasty and stenting in our institution over a 6-year period and review the current evidence for practice. METHODS: Patient demographics, procedure indications, technical procedural details, complications, baseline and follow-up renal profile indices were analysed. RESULTS: The most common indication for intervention was atherosclerotic RAS (69.2 %) followed by RAS secondary to fibromuscular dysplasia (15.3 %) and RAA (15.3 %). There was a 100 % technical success in our cohort of patients. The majority of patients (84.6 %) had cross-sectional imaging in the form of computed tomography or magnetic resonance angiography prior to intervention. CONCLUSION: When performed in appropriate settings following close liaison with referring physicians, percutaneous renal angioplasty and stenting remains an important treatment modality for renovascular disease.
