Delayed Presentation of Renal Arterio-Venous Fistula and Pseudoaneurysm in Native Left Kidney in Allograft Recipient: A Case Report
Iatrogenic complications due to renal biopsy majorly include formation of an arterio-venous fistula, pseudoaneurysm or arterio-ureteral fistula. These complications are observed within a span of few days post biopsy and are rare after few years. We reported a case of 32-year-old renal allograft recipient male presenting 6 years post biopsy of the left kidney with left lumbar region pain who was eventually diagnosed with arterio-venous fistula and pseudoaneurysm involving inferior interlobular branch of left renal artery. Superselective embolization was achieved using coils and high concentration glue and transient placement of a venous occlusion balloon with complete technical and clinical success.
