Traumatic Renal Artery Occlusion in a Patient with a Solitary Kidney: Case Report of Treatment with Endovascular Stent and Review of the Literature
Renal artery occlusion after blunt trauma is a rare occurrence, and the optimal treatment for this condition has not been established. To our knowledge, endovascular repair for blunt renal artery occlusion in a solitary kidney has not been described in the literature. This case report describes a 42-year-old woman with a solitary left kidney presenting with total occlusion of the left renal artery after a significant crush injury. She was successfully treated by percutaneous placement of an endovascular stent. Postprocedure, the patient developed acute renal failure requiring temporary dialysis. At follow-up 4 months later, the patient has normal urinary output and a normal creatinine.
