Abstract

Congenital renal arteriovenous fistula (rAVF) is a rare and often underdiagnosed clinical condition. Here, we present a case of a large congenital rAVF in an 81-year-old woman with a right flank bruit and high-output heart failure. The rAVF was successfully treated with percutaneous endovascular coil embolization. Complications included a small right renal hematoma, mild contrast-induced nephropathy, and small right renal infarct in the lower pole. Postoperatively, the patient had complete resolution of symptoms with salvage of the kidney. She has been observed annually for 5 years with computed tomography scan and ultrasound examination.
