dc.description.abstractFive cases of renal autotransplantation for renovascular hypertension in children are described. Hypertension in these cases was managed temporarily with medications until the patients grew to a size that made an operative procedure feasible. Following operation the blood pressure returned to normal in three patients without any antihypertenswe medication during the period of follow-up (8 months to 6 years). In the other two patients, small doses of antihypertensive medications still were needed, despite correction of the stenosis. The results of this series demonstrate that autotransplantation is a safe and effective procedure in childhood renovascular hypertension in contrast to other forms of vascular reconstruction, which carry a high rate of failure in this age group. © 1979.en
