Renal function impairment during interventional procedures became a real clinical problem. Contrast related nephropathy is the most common cause of renal failure, however, the procedure-related technical troubles may cause unexpected renal dysfunction.Technical failure of EVAR resulting in acute renal dysfunction is presented. The postprocedural occlusion of the right renal artery was treated in chimney technique. Early reintervention allowed the kidney preservation and renal function restoration.
It is impossible to avoid all the complications following treatment of aortic aneurysm, but they can be anticipated and comprehensively treated in collaboration with other specialists.
