Recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator in the treatment of acute renal artery thrombosis after kidney transplantation.

Abstract

Acute arterial thrombosis is an uncommon but potentially devastating consequence of kidney transplantation. Early recognition followed by thrombectomy may salvage the graft. We present a case of acute renal artery thrombosis after a living-related kidney transplant with successful treatment with operative thrombectomy and intraarterial infusion of… (More)
