The role of and indications for interventions for renal artery stenosis have long been a hot topic of debate. Despite numerous reports and studies over the years, there remain many unanswered questions. Among them are: Who should be intervened upon? What should be the objectives of intervention? What is the optimal mode of intervention? More recently, several randomized studies have attempted to answer some of these basic questions, but unfortunately have left many unanswered questions. In the following debate, the authors consider the existing literature and attempt to convince us that the majority, or the minority, of patients with renal artery stenoses should be intervened upon.
