Arteriovenous fistula and prolonged hematuria after renal biopsy: treatment with epsilon aminocaproic acid



Arteriovenous fistula and prolonged hematuria after renal biopsy: treatment with epsilon aminocaproic acid



Canadian Medical Association Journal 110(6): 671



A patient with membranoproliferative glomerulonephritis and mild hypertension is described who, after a renal biopsy, developed an arteriovenous fistula and then severe continuous hematuria from the seventh to the 38th postbiopsy day. Treatment with epsilon aminocaproic acid was associated with rapid and permanent cessation of bleeding, gradual improvement in renal function, and disappearance of the renal artery bruit. No complications were encountered.
