Arteriocaliceal fistula from prolonged nephrostomy tube drainage

J. A. Kaufman, R. A. Edelstein

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


We report a case of an arteriocaliceal fistula that occurred after 21 months of continuous nephrostomy drainage. Hemorrhage was successfully controlled with selective angiography and embolization. Although unusual, arterial injury should be considered when patients with indwelling nephrostomy tubes present with new onset of bleeding.
