When I was thirty I had a blocked renal artery. Had a bypass. Now I am 71 just learned that that artery is completely blocked and the left one is 50% blocked was told by the doctor that they have found out that putting in stints doesn't really work. He is just treating my high blood pressure and doing blood work every couple months is the the proper procedure

Hi, @dolores42. I'm sorry to hear that the artery is completely blocked. You may find information on the renal artery treatment page of mayoclinic.org helpful: http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/renal-artery-stenosis/care-at-mayo-clinic/treatment/con-20036702
