Percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty (P.T.R.A.) was performed in a 43-year-old woman with medial fibroplasia of the right main renal artery that was causing high-grade stenoses and severe hypertension. The procedure led to a virtually complete dilatation of the stenosing lesions and a prompt and lasting fall in blood-pressure to normal.(More)
The clinical and angiographic features of cervical and ocular bruits were correlated in 50 consecutive patients with severe extracranial internal carotid artery occlusive disease. Cervical bruits, generally localized to the carotid bifurcation, were highly associated (P = 0.004) with "tight" (residual lumen less than or equal to 2 mm) internal carotid(More)
Nineteen stenotic arteries in 16 patients with severe renovascular hypertension of nonatherosclerotic nature (fibromuscular dysplasia in 13, neurofibromatosis in 3) were treated with percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty. The procedure was technically successful in 12 of 14 (86%) stenoses in the fibromuscular dysplasia subgroup but in only one of five(More)
