Moreover, women with miscarriages were 1.13-, 1.2-, and 1.16-fold more likely to have an MI, renovascular hypertension, and stroke, respectively, than women with no miscarriages.
Renovascular hypertension cause renal ischemia that stimulate recruitment of leukocyte and higher production of reactive oxygen species.
The second method of renovascular hypertension generation is based on procedures, which provoke renal parenchyma damages.

reported the first case of huge hepatic hydatid causing renovascular hypertension by compressing and rotating the right kidney and its vasculature in an already nephrectomized patient.
PTA may not result in HTN control in a significant proportion of patients with renovascular hypertension. Hypertensive children having complex, more widespread stenosis may present the poorest outcome after angioplasty, while clinical benefit has been reported in 79.9% of the children with involvement of only the main renal arteries [9].

Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a cause of renovascular hypertension (RVHT) and ischemic nephropathy and has been demonstrated to be a predictor of future cardiovascular events [1].
Renovascular hypertension associated with pseudoaneurysm following blunt trauma.
Due to increase in radiological imaging techniques, normal range of renal artery diameter is very important for guiding interventional radiologist during procedures like arterial catheterization and angioplasty.4 Decrease in luminal diameter of renal artery leads to renal artery stenosis that will cause renovascular hypertension and ischemic nephropathy.5 Percutaneous arterial stenting is the choice of treatment for renal artery stenosis, but this requires definite measurement of renal artery diameter and length.6-8
([6]) The aim of this study was to develop a model of renovascular hypertension by using Goldblatt's two kidneys one clip (2K1C) method and evaluating the levels of choline acetyltransferase (ChAT) mRNA as the main marker of cholinergic system activity as well as ACE mRNA level in the frontal cortex.
[4] The process may lead to severe arterial stenosis and the consequences include cerebral ischemia, cardiac angina, mesenteric ischemia, or renovascular hypertension. [6-8] Adrenal glands, kidneys, renal arteries, ureters, and adjacent anatomical spaces may be involved in the process.
