Treatment of neurofibromatosis associated renal artery stenosis with hypertension by percutaneous transluminal angioplasty.

PMID:  2944678     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 12 year old girl with severe arterial hypertension was found to have neurofibromatosis associated bilateral stenoses of the main renal arteries and elevated plasma renin activity in the right main renal vein. Antihypertensive treatment was unable to normalize blood pressure. PTA of the right renal artery from a left axillary approach resulted in normalization of blood pressure and peripheral plasma renin activity. PTA seems to be an effective and safe method for treatment even of complicated forms of renal artery stenosis.
