In brief: Will try
Renal artery stenosis is a blockage of the blood flow to the kidney.
This may be associated with high blood pressure. It can be diagnosed with a doppler ultrasound of the renal artery in suspected individuals, or some form of a renal angiogram (such as ct or mr angiograms). The stenosis can be dilated sometimes resulting in a decrease in blood pressure levels.

This can be serious, but you should know that very few people with high blood pressure have this. We look in patients with very difficult to control blood pressure.
