Abstract

A case of 72-year old man with coronary heart disease and hypertension resistant to pharmacological treatment is presented. During invasive diagnostic procedures the significant disseminated atherosclerotic lesions of coronary arteries and bilateral renal arteries stenosis were evaluated. Successful treatment based on coronary artery bypass surgery and then percutaneous transluminal renal angioplasty was performed. After several months of follow-up a good response to pharmacological treatment with better control of blood pressure was revealed.
