The clinical course of two children with mid-aortic syndrome and renal artery stenosis (RAS) who suffered from severe arterial hypertension is described. Hypertension was uncontrollable by antihypertensive medication and was managed by percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (PTRA) with stent implantation. The pediatric experience with PTRA is limited, and there are only few cases reported with additional stent implantation. Complications of these procedures are well known from experience with adult patients. However, since surgical revascularization may be technically difficult especially in small children, PTRA with or without stenting should be considered as a valuable treatment option in pediatric RAS.
