[Compression of the renal artery by a musculo-tendinous band: an unrecognised cause of renovascular hypertension].

Abstract

Stenosis of a renal artery by extrinsic compression is an uncommon cause of renovascular hypertension. In rare cases, this compression is due to the presence of fibres from the diaphragm or the psoas muscle. This aetiology should be considered when renal artery stenosis is observed in a young hypertensive patient without cardiovascular risk factors. Spiral… (More)
