The long-term postoperative effect of surgery on the hypertension of 29 patients with renal artery stenosis has been determined and correlated with the renal pathology. In 20 patients bilateral and in 9 patients ipsilateral (stenotic side) open biospies were obtained. Average duration of postoperative follow-up was 19 months. A successful result was obtained in 14 patients, defined as attainment of a blood pressure of 140/90 mm Hg or less, or a decrease in mean pressure of 20 mm Hg or more (on no therapy or less than preoperatively). Type of surgery (nephrectomy or vascular repair) was not a factor in
