In 8 of 18 patients with suspected diagnosis of renovascular hypertension, the resting renin values were inconclusive. However, following tourniquet stress, the values became positive. Sixteen of 18 patients showed significant decrease in blood pressure following surgery. The procedure was well tolerated, and its routine use is recommended.
