In brief: It doesn't
An accessory renal artery is simply a normal variation of how the blood vessels go to a kidney.
Instead of the normal one vessel, there are two, or even more. It is normal and seen commonly.

In brief: Angioplasty
If an accessory artery is thought to cause hypertension, it could be dilated and stented.
The conservative routed is to use blood pressure medicines if BP is easily controllable and follow up with a nephrologist closely.
