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 recombinant tissue-type plasminogen activator.
