摘要

Since its introduction, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty has become an alternative therapeutic modality to surgical and medical treatment for renovascular hypertension. We report the case of a nine-year- old boy who had hypertension caused by renal arterial stenosis. The patient's high blood pressure was 164/100 mmHg, which was discovered incidentally during a physical check-up. A selective renal angiography showed a severe short-segment stenosis with post-stenotic dilatation of the left renal artery. A 4-mm balloon catheter was advanced through the stenotic area and was inflated five times to dilate the stenosis. After the procedure, the selective renal angiography showed a significant increase in the diameter of the left renal artery. Blood pressure decreased to normal immediately after the procedure. During the one-year follow-up period, the patient remained normotensive without the use of antihypertensive drugs.
