Abstract

Stenting is the treatment of choice for treating stenotic renal ostial lesions. During the stenting of an ostial lesion in a renal artery with post-stenotic dilatation, we were faced with the problems of unavailability of a balloon of appropriate length and diameter, and determining the real reference vessel diameter. The problem was solved by a simple technique.
