UNILATERAL RENALARTERY THROMBOEMBOLISM IN A PATIENT WITH ATRIAL FIBRILLATION
MetadataShow full item record
Thromboembolic obstruction of the renal artery is a serious clinical problem, but rarely diagnosed. Diagnosis is not usually established until irreversible renal parenchymal damage occurs. Emboli to the major renal arteries are associated with cardiac diseases and arrhythmias, especially, atrial fibrillation. Here, we presented a case of renal artery thromboembolism in a patient who had atrial fibrillation and presented to the emergency department with left flank pain.
