Abstract

Doppler duplex ultrasound is one of the main non-invasive diagnostic methods for detection of renal artery stenosis. This diagnostic method has several limitations related to high prevalence of additional renal arteries and high percentage of inadequate examinations. We present a case of 51 years old male with hypertension, in whom double left side renal artery with critical stenosis of one, was the reason of diagnostic difficulties.
