an_improved_me  Its hard to say when he had a clinically significant stenosis of the renal artery. He clearly has evidence of atherosclerotic CV disease, (MI 5 years ago), and so it's not necessarily suprising that he gets atherosclerosis elsewhere. Also not sure if the hypothyroidismis a clue to a risk factor for elevated LDL / Cholesterol, since thyroid is important for that (although he has been treated for it). +

With the question stem saying "bruit over right posterior flank" that was the clue I used to pick renal artery stenosis. First Aid defines it as the following:

"Renal Artery Stenosis: Clinically, patients can have refractory HTN with negative family history of HTN, asymmetric renal size, epigastric/flank bruits."
