Atherosclerotic bilateral renal artery chronic total occlusions (CTOs) as a cause of hypertensive emergency is rare, and other causes such as vasculitis should be ruled out before definitive diagnosis. Successful CTO intervention in such a scenario has only been sparsely reported. A 53-year-old-male smoker with severe resistant hypertension required multiple emergency admissions for flash pulmonary edema and aggressive blood pressure control. He was found to have deranged renal parameters with a serum creatinine of 2.4 mg/dL and an estimated glomerular filtration rate of 25 mL/min. His complete blood picture, metabolic panel, and inflammatory markers were within normal limits. Renal Doppler ultrasonography revealed bilateral severe renal artery stenosis and a contracted left kidney. Renal angiography showed total occlusion of both renal arteries with well-collateralized right kidney. He underwent right renal artery CTO angioplasty with stenting. Left renal artery occlusion was managed conservatively because of the contracted kidney size and poor function. He is doing well for the last 30 months with good hypertension control, well-perfusing and preserved right kidney volume, stable renal function, and significantly fewer medications from baseline. Renal artery stenting is lifesaving in patients with bilateral renal artery occlusion and should be expeditiously performed, particularly in patients with and hypertensive emergency or recurrent unexplained heart failure. Kidney size, function, presence of collateralization, and viable renal parenchymal tissue guide in planning the intervention.
