Abstract: This paper approach a relatively old problem: renovascular hypertension in atherosclerotic renal artery stenosis, and a relatively new one: ischemic nephropathy. In recent years, ischemic nephropathy has been recognized as a cause of increasingly frequent chronic renal failure that requires initiation of alternate therapy failure. This has led to the develop-ment of new methods of diagnosis and treatment of vascular stenosis, such as Duplex ultrasonography, spiral CT, MRI angiography, selective renal angio-graphy that provide morphological and functional proper diagnosis in all cases.
