A pt involved in high speed automobile collision has multiple injuries including rib fractures and abdominal contusions. Insertion of Foley catheter shows that there is hematuria and retrograde cystogram is normal. CT shows renal injuries that do not require surgery. Six weeks later the pt develops acute shortness of breath and flank bruit. Whats the dx?


i think he has developed AV fistula at the renal pelvis.


yep grin
this is traumatic arteriovenous fistula at the rednal pedicle, and subsequent heart failure
