Many disorders of the kidney and adrenal gland are amenable to minimally invasive procedures. Although the range of procedures is large, there are several key procedures (such as percutaneous nephrostomy for nephrolithiasis or tumor, renal artery embolization for trauma or vascular masses, adrenal venous sampling for hyperaldosteronism, and renal angioplasty in the setting of fibromuscular dysplasia) that are commonly performed and should be familiar to every interventional radiologist. The goal of this chapter is to review the pathology of the kidney and adrenal gland, list the indications and contraindications for these standard procedures, and highlight the fundamental techniques for performing them.
