In 100 hypertensive patients 18 to 64 years old, the function of each kidney was studied separately by means of ureteral catheterization. Determination was made of urinary minute volume, osmolarity, concentration of sodium, potassium, urea, creatinine, inulin, and para-aminohippuric acid (PAH), clearance of inulin and PAH, and reabsorption of filtered sodium and water. Excretory urography was performed in all patients, isotope renography in 90, and renal arteriography in 85. Stenosis of renal arteries was demonstrated in 59 patients, atrophic pyelonephritis in 13, and renal tumor in 1; of the remaining 27, the only renovascular abnormality was one or more aberrant
