In brief: Can be relieved
Renal artery occlusion, a chronic condition can usually be relieved rather than "cured".
Cure usually suggests that problem has completely resolved. Complete occlusion of renal artery would mean non function of kidney and can not be cured. 25% of people have two renal arteries and second artery can maintain function in part of kidney. Optimal treatment is stent placement by x-ray interventionist.

In brief: Yes
It depends on what size artery is involved, where the occlusion occurred, and if there is irreversible kidney damage .
Medical treatment may help some people. Some arteries can be repaired or replaced with surgery, or a radiology procedure can be performed to dilate the artery.Cigarette smoking and higher levels of cholesterol increase a person's risks of recurrent arterial disease.
