Acute Renal Infarction Pathogenesis and Atrial Fibrillation: Case Report and Literature Review

Abdulwahab Hritani, Francois Jo-Hoy, Anwer Siddiqi, Candice Baldeo, Andreea Poenariu

Abstract


Kidney infarction is an uncommon thromboembolic complication of atrial fibrillation (AF). Diagnosis of this condition can be challenging due to its rarity and the fact that its presentation is associated with a multitude of other pathologies. No treatment guidelines have been established so far; however, multiple modalities have been employed, including systemic thrombolytics, intra-arterial thrombolytics and anticoagulants. In this article, we review acute renal infarction pathogenesis with a focus on AF as an important etiology.
