Renal Arteriography and Interventions
One to five percent of children are hypertensive and of those it is not well known how many will have an arterial cause but this number ranges from 5 to 25 %. It is beyond the scope of this chapter to assess the complex issue of children with hypertension and how the different modalities (US, Doppler, CTA, MRA) should be used in the workup. The renal arteriogram remains the gold standard in identifying or excluding an arterial abnormality as the cause of hypertension.
