Abstract

The renal hilum, and particularly the renal artery, is one of the most important locations in the body for vascular pathology. This is due not only to the vascular support offered to the kidney but also to the important functional impact (e.g., secondary hypertension) of lesions in these vascular structures on patient health status. The present chapter summarizes a set of different injuries that may occur in the renal artery, including trauma, fibromuscular dysplasia, and a complex group of lesions related to arterial dilation (e.g., aneurysms).
