Surgical operations on the renal vessels for renovascular hypertension, renal artery aneurysms, renal artery embolism and renal vein thrombosis, have been made feasible during the last decade as a result of improved diagnostic techniques as well as improved surgical skills. These technical advances have developed at an equal pace with the increasing awareness of the existence of vascular problems affecting the kidney.
