Postbiopsy renal allograft arteriovenous fistula therapeutic embolization

Urologic Radiology 7(3): 161-164

Postbiopsy renal allograft arteriovenous fistula therapeutic embolization

Two patients with large, postbiopsy renal allograft arteriovenous fistulae are presented. One patient also had a renal artery anastomotic stenosis. Prominent clinical features in these cases were deterioration of allograft function and severe hypertension. Following therapeutic embolization, combined with balloon angioplasty in the second patient, there was marked improvement in allograft function and a return to normal blood pressure.
