Severe hypertension due to renal polar artery stenosis in an adolescent treated with coil embolization

Severe hypertension due to renal polar artery stenosis in an adolescent treated with coil embolization

Pediatric Radiology 39(11): 1234-1237

A 12-year-old boy presented with severe arterial hypertension due to a severe subsegmental renal artery stenosis. Treatment consisted of selective embolization of the stenosed polar artery, which resulted in near normalization of the arterial pressures. Renal artery stenosis should always be considered, even in young adolescents, as a cause for arterial hypertension. Only selective angiography was able to demonstrate the subsegmental artery stenosis in this patient.
