In this paper, we present a case of kidney injury as a complication of renal artery angioplasty in a 54-year-old female patient that suffered from resistant renovascular hypertension. This case emphasises the unpredictable nature of endovascular procedures, the need for careful post-procedure evaluation and the role of "old fashioned" surgical techniques in resolving complications of endovascular procedures.

KEY WORDS: stenosis of renal artery, kidney injury, endovascular procedure, complications, renovascular hypertension.
