PALACIOS, Renato Menezes et al. Endovascular treatment of renal angiomiolipoma by selective arterial embolization. J. vasc. bras. [online]. 2012, vol.11, n.4, pp.324-328. ISSN 1677-5449.

We report a case of a patient with a major complaint of left lumbar pain, diagnosed with bilateral renal angiomyolipomas (AMLRs), with the most voluminous lesion of 6.2 cm in its largest diameter, underwent endovascular superselective arterial embolization with microspheres. The AMLRs are rare benign tumors. Most are sporadic, while a minority is associated with Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (ETC). The AMLRs larger than 4 cm must be treated due to higher risk of complications, especially hemorrhagic. A selective arterial embolization (EAS) is an effective and safe treatment for AMLRs.

Keywords : angiomyolipoma; kidney; embolization, therapeutic; microspheres.
