Abstract

Traumatic renal arteriovenous fistula involving the inferior vena cava (IVC) are exceptionally rare, but if left untreated can have devastating clinical consequences, including development of renovascular hypertension, cardiomegaly, and congestive heart failure. We report a rare, pediatric case of a renal-caval arteriovenous fistula that developed after a gunshot wound to the abdomen and its subsequent treatment with endovascular means. We review our case and the world literature on the evaluation and management of trauma-related renal-caval arteriovenous fistulae.
