The aim of this study is To evaluate the outcomes of various surgical approaches in the treatment of renovascular hypertension and midaortic syndrome (MAS) in children. We performed a retrospective medical record review of patients who had undergone surgery for renovascular hypertension from 2010 to 2018 at our center under the care of a multidisciplinary team. The operative interventions included mesenteric artery growth improves circulation (MAGIC), tissue expander-stimulated lengthening of arteries (TESLA), aortic bypass using polytetrafluorethylene, renal artery reimplantation, and autotransplantation. The MAGIC procedure uses the meandering mesenteric artery as a free conduit for aortic bypass. The TESLA procedure is based on lengthening the normal distal aorta and iliac arteries by gradual filling of a retroaortic tissue expander for several weeks, followed by resection of the stenotic aorta and subsequent primary reconstruction. A total of 39 patients were identified, 10 with isolated renal artery stenosis, 26 with MAS, and 3 with systemic inflammatory vasculitis.
