Hypertensive patients suspected of having renal vascular lesions are frequently studied by splitrenal function tests requiring bilateral ureteral catheterization. These studies intend to demonstrate increased water reabsorption by the ischemic kidney. The present study extends the information obtained during the retrograde ureteral catheterization by passing small phonocatheters, used in cardiac catheterization technics, into each ureter. The renal arterial pulse may be recorded indirectly with a phonocatheter tip in the respective renal pelvis. The pulse tracings from each kidney are compared as to relative amplitude and the presence or absence of bruits.
In patients with renal vascular occlusions, there was a
