ABSTRACT
Renovascular hypertension can be managed medically in most cases. However, in cases of failed medical therapy revascularization is indicated. Splenorenal grafting is one such method for revascularization. We present a report of splenorenal grafting for the management of resistant hypertension.

Figure 2: Splenorenal anastomosis

Mentions: On 2nd postoperative day BP was 140/84 mmHg with nifedipine 20 mg 1 tablet tid. Postoperative Doppler showed good filling of left distal renal artery through the splenic artery with good renal perfusion. CT angiogram was performed on 10th postoperative day that demonstrated patent splenorenal arterial anastomosis [Figure 2]. Patient was discharged on 10th postoperative day with advice for right kidney revascularization after 2 months. Serum creatinine at discharge was 1.2 mg/dl. At 6 months, postoperation patient's BP was 120/80 without any drugs.
