Abstract

We experienced one case of renal arteriovenous fistula that was treated with superselective transcatheter arterial embolization of the renal artery. The patient presented with colicky pain, gross hematuria, and acute urinary retention. At that time, we suspected renal stone because of a radio-opaque density on the right renal area of excretory urography. However, an acoustic shadow could not identified by renal ultrasonogram. When gross hematuria reappeared one week later, selective renal angiography was performed, and arteriovenous fistula was found on the right kidney. We used superselective tanscatheter arterial embolization with a Gelfoam fragment on right arterial branch as the treatment modality.
