Endovascular treatment of renal artery thrombosis caused by umbilical artery catheterization



Endovascular treatment of renal artery thrombosis caused by umbilical artery catheterization



Journal of Vascular Surgery 28(5): 949-953



Renal arterial thrombosis, usually in association with aortic thrombosis, has been reported as a result of prolonged neonatal umbilical artery catheterization. A case of renal artery thrombosis attributable to umbilical artery catheterization, resulting in malignant renovascular hypertension, in a 15-day-old neonate, treated by catheter-directed thrombolysis through the involuting umbilical artery, was studied. Resolution of systemic hypertension and partial return of right renal function followed rapid thrombus dissolution.
