CARDOZO, Marco Aurélio et al. Endovascular treatment of renal artery aneurysm using microcoil embolization and renal blood flow preservation: case report. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2007, vol.6, n.2, pp.167-170. ISSN 1677-5449.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S1677-54492007000200012.

Endovascular treatment of renal artery aneurysmal disease has been increasingly accepted as an alternative to conventional surgery, especially in cases of renal artery bifurcation or complex intrarenal aneurysms. The authors report a case of endovascular treatment of a saccular aneurysm of the right renal artery bifurcation associated with poorly controlled renovascular hypertension. Selective catheterization of the renal artery was performed and microcoils were inserted into the aneurysmal sac. The aneurysm was completely obliterated with total preservation of renal blood flow. Clinical evolution was satisfactory with significant reduction in anti-hypertensive drugs. Control tomographic angiography, after eight months, confirmed treatment success.

Palavras-chave : Therapeutic embolization; renal artery; aneurysm.
