Follow‐up of early unilateral nephrectomy for hypertension
Early unilateral nephrectomy was carried out in four young children with unilateral renovascular disease, a poorly functioning kidney and hypertension. At follow‐up 5–16 years later all showed normal growth, blood pressure and renal function, and only one child had low‐grade albuminuria. Unilateral nephrectomy seems to be a safe and effective alternative to long‐term hypotensive treatment.
