The authors report on their experience with the treatment of renovascular hypertension by stent implantation. In the past 4 years different types of stents (Palmaz [9], Palmaz-Corinthian [4], Memotherm [1] and AVE [1]) were implanted into 15 renal arteries of 11 patients. The indication was primary in 8 cases, and secondary in 3 patients, because of restenosis of a previously dilated renal artery. 14 stents were implanted into narrowed renal arteries, and in the remaining one case a stent was placed in an occluded renal artery immediately after recanalization. The technical success was 100%. In all but the recanalized case in which the renal artery was occluded, stents are still open. On the basis of this experience and the literature, the authors suggest the more extensive usage of this less invasive method.
