What is renal infarction?

Renal infarction is the damage of kidney tissue due to a disruption of blood flow to the kidneys. The blood flow may most commonly be disrupted by a blood clot from the heart obstructing the arteries supplying blood to the kidneys.

  • History of atrial fibrillation

  • Decrease in urine volume

  • Low back pain

  • Back pain

  • Bloody or red urine

  • Abdominal pain

  • Fever

  • Discomfort in the whole body

Questions your doctor may ask to check for renal infarction

Your doctor may ask these questions to diagnose renal infarction

  • Have you been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation?

  • Are you urinating less?

  • Do you have lower back pain?

  • Do you experience back pain?

  • Have you ever had red or brown urine?

Treatment for renal infarction

Depending on the size of the blood clot, conservative treatment such as medications to dissolve the blood clot and blood thinners to reduce the risk of developing clots in the future may be prescribed. In more severe cases, open surgery may be recommended to remove the obstruction.
