Hi...this BP is quite high for a 11 year old. This looks like a renovascular hypertension or high BP related to kidney problem. After the renogram the kidney which is causing high blood pressure may need removal if it is small. But at the same time - the other kidney is also having a reflux and may pose problems late. I suggest you get in touch with a pediatric nephrologist for long term follow up.
