In the 59 hypertensive patients submitted to percutaneous transluminal angioplasty (PTA) of the renal artery, there was an immediate success in the blood pressure in 91.5% and a later one of 79.6%. In these patients we obtained better results: 81.4% in the unilateral lesions, more than in the bilateral ones--72.7%; 82.5% in the renal artery trunk lesions, more than in the ostium ones--71.4%; 88.9% in the lesions of fibromuscular origin, more than in the aterosclerotic ones--75%; 84.4% in up to
more » ... 5 years old patients, more than in older ones--71.4%. These differences were not significant. The results of renal angioplasty in renovascular hypertension suggest this type of intervention as an alternative treatment.
