Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Ectopic kidney and inherent vascular abnormalities may result in renovascular hypertension. The case we report is peculiar as a left ectopic iliac kidney supplied by a superior and an inferior polar renal arteries was detected in a treatment-resistant hypertensive man. In conclusion, percutaneous renal artery denervation was successfully performed in the right renal artery and in both left accessory renal arteries, obtaining excellent blood pressure decrease at follow-up.
