Renal Artery Stenosis?????

My son is 17. He is 6ft weighs 30lbs and athletic. He had high blood pressure. I took him to a cadiologist who ordered an MRI of his kidneys which showed Mild renal artery stenosis. I have to take him to a vascular surgeon to see how much the arteries are clogged and if he needs a stent or not. Any imformation would be appreciated.

Hope
