Renal Artery Disease Treatment

Treatment options for diseases of arteries supplying blood to the intestines and kidneys include open surgical (bypass) and endovascular treatment (angioplasty and stents). 

Open vascular surgery - a bypass graft using a blood vessel from another part of the body or a tube made of synthetic material is placed in the area of the blocked or narrowed artery to reroute the blood flow

Endovascular procedures - such as angioplasty (the opening of a renal artery using a balloon or other method) or placement of a stent (a tiny expandable metal coil placed inside an artery to keep the artery open)
