Renal allograft recipients were routinely monitored by means of duplex Doppler ultrasound. In a 20-month survey period, four instances of acute renal vein thrombosis were detected among 75 patients. All episodes occurred within the first 3 postoperative days. The examinations disclosed peaked, abruptly dropping systolic frequency shifts and retrograde plateaulike frequency shifts during diastole at the level of the main renal artery and its proximal branches.
