Blunt renal artery injury is a relatively rare finding. The literature demonstrates an incidence as low as 0.08% of all blunt abdominal traumas, occurring in 1-4% of patients with renal injury. However, the rate of early diagnosis of such injuries is increasing due to increased awareness and the liberal use of contrast-enhanced computed tomography. In this report, we describe an approach to re-vascularization by endovascular stenting that resulted in successful salvage of renal function after blunt trauma.
