Renal artery stenoses with incidental mesenteric artery stenoses

Case contributed by Brendan Cullinane


History of hypertension, which was poorly controlled by medication until recently. Bilateral <60% renal artery stenoses were identified in a renal artery ultrasound in December 2010. The stenoses were also graded at <60% on a surveillance ultrasound in December 2011. This surveillance ultrasound was performed in June 2012.

Age: 65 year
