Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Embolization and other endovascular procedures are highly effective and well-tolerated procedure to manage a variety of urological emergencies. The most well-known procedure is embolization of traumatic renal injury. Iatrogenic renal injury is recently increasing due to the popularity of partial nephrectomy. Renal artery occlusion and bleeding from renal tumor are also indications for endovascular procedures. Although rare, uretero-ilio arterial fistula and post-traumatic nonischemic priapism are well treated with this technique. Interventional radiologists should be well acquainted with these urological emergencies.
