Renal arteriovenous fistula with renal artery aneurysms and dilated renal veins presents as an infrequent lesion. Endovascular therapy has recently been considered the first-line treatment for these conditions. We report a case of a patient with idiopathic renal arteriovenous fistula concomitant with multiple renal artery aneurysms that was successfully treated by the placement of a covered stent.

BACKGROUND Congenital renal vascular anomalies have been classified into 3 categories: cirsoid, angiomatous, and aneurysmal. These classifications are based on the size, location, and number of vessel...
Patients with end stage renal disease need an accurate and effective vascular access for haemodialysis. This study was conducted to postulate a hypothesis that proximal arterio venous fistula (AVF) cr...
Renal artery stenosis (RAS) is a leading cause of hypertension, renal failure, pulmonary edema, and loss of renal mass. Atherothrombotic renal disease is a well-described entity, known primarily for i...
Intraorbital arteriovenous fistula is a rare vascular disease characterized by an acquired arteriovenous communication without direct cavernous sinus involvement. Intraorbital arteriovenous fistula ma...
Aortic arch calcification is a surrogate marker for arterial stiffness and hypertension-related vascular damage. Renal Resistive Index, a renal Doppler ultrasound parameter, is used to assess renal he...
In recent years the use of paclitaxel releasing percutaneous transluminal angioplastic (PTA) balloon catheter is spreading in vascular pathology, mainly in stenosis infrainguinal arteries....
Feasibility clinical study to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the catheter system for the percutaneous creation of an arteriovenous fistula for patients with end stage renal disea...
This open-label pilot randomized controlled trial will test the feasibility and safety of randomizing patients over 65 years old who start hemodialysis with a tunneled dialysis catheter (T...
Use of arteriovenous fistula for IV drug administration is controversial and often prohibited by nephrologists. However, we have been using this method in our department for years now in o...
The timing for arteriovenous fistula (AVF) creation and its effect on target organs in patients with chronic renal failure will be investigated by multicenter prospective cohort. Lower est...
Narrowing or occlusion of the RENAL ARTERY or arteries. It is due usually to ATHEROSCLEROSIS; FIBROMUSCULAR DYSPLASIA; THROMBOSIS; EMBOLISM, or external pressure. The reduced renal perfusion can lead to renovascular hypertension (HYPERTENSION, RENOVASCULAR).
Persistent high BLOOD PRESSURE due to KIDNEY DISEASES, such as those involving the renal parenchyma, the renal vasculature, or tumors that secrete RENIN.
Functional KIDNEY FAILURE in patients with liver disease, usually LIVER CIRRHOSIS or portal hypertension (HYPERTENSION, PORTAL), and in the absence of intrinsic renal disease or kidney abnormality. It is characterized by intense renal vasculature constriction, reduced renal blood flow, OLIGURIA, and sodium retention.
Left RENAL VEIN compression between the AORTA, ABDOMINAL and the SUPERIOR MESENTERIC ARTERY. Variable symptoms include HYPERTENSION, RENOVASCULAR; HEMATURIA; and VARICOSE VEINS.
An abnormal direct communication between an artery and a vein without passing through the CAPILLARIES. An A-V fistula usually leads to the formation of a dilated sac-like connection, arteriovenous aneurysm. The locations and size of the shunts determine the degree of effects on the cardiovascular functions such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEART RATE.
Chronic kidney disease (CKD), also known as chronic renal disease, is a progressive loss in renal function over a period of months or years. The symptoms of worsening kidney function are non-specific, and might include feeling generally unwell and experi...
