Traumatic Bilateral Renal Artery Thrombosis Diagnosed by Computed Tomography with Successful Revascularization: Case ReportJournal of Trauma-Injury Infection & Critical Care
Find in a LibraryCatalog Record
AbstractTraumatic bilateral renal artery thrombosis is a rare injury. We found 15 cases previously reported. An additional case report of a 54-year-old man is presented with a review of the literature. The diagnosis was made by computed tomography and confirmed by angiography. Successful revascularization was performed. A high index of suspicion, early diagnosis, and prompt revascularization are essential in obtaining optimal results without hypertension or permanent impairment of renal function.
