Interventional Management of Renal Bleeding after Partial Nephrectomy


Partial nephrectomy (PN) has emerged as a serious alternative to nephrectomy in oncologic therapy of renal tumours. While complications are rare in general, renal hemorrhage may occur und necessitate angiographic embolization. In this retrospective study, we evaluate the clinical, imagingand procedural findings of seven interventions in five patients with renal hemorrhage after PN. In four out of five patients (80%) the bleeding could be treated successfully by embolotherapy. Angiographic embolization in patients with renal hemorrhage after PN is feasible and has a high success rate. The procedure might facilitate avoidance of nephrectomy.
