Management of Renal Artery Occlusion Related to Multiple Trauma in Children: Two Case Reports

We report two successful treatment cases of renal artery occlusion (RAO) related to multiple trauma. A 4-year-old boy was diagnosed with right RAO and liver laceration after a traffic accident. Surgical thrombectomy and revascularization were performed, but lacerated liver not sutured. Lacerated liver was surgical repaired 6 days postoperation because of delayed bleeding. 13% of the patient's right kidney function was conserved. Another 7-year-old boy was compressed by an agitator. Renal scintigraphy showed that the right kidney was nonfunctional. He underwent conservative observation without any complication. In stable patients with multiple trauma, RAO should be diagnosed as soon as possible.
