10-12) Stronger evidence is required to guide treatment options in acute renal infarction, although this is a difficult task given its low incidence.
Renal infarction, although rare in the setting of atheroembolization, typically leads to an increase in serum aspartate aminotransferase and lactate dehydrogenase levels (4).
At 6 h after the procedure, plasma aspartate aminotransferase activities were significantly higher in rats with renal artery ligation than in sham-operated rats, indicating the occurrence of renal infarction in this model (Fig.
Detection of acute renal infarction is often delayed or missed due to both the rarity of the disease and its unspecific clinical presentation.
Lambrecht GLY, Malbrain MLNG, Coremans P, et al: Acute renal infarction and heavy marijuana smoking.
Despite the fact that marijuana has been one of the most commonly abused drugs in history, only a few reports of renal infarctions in patients with a history of heavy marijuana use could be found in the literature, (Lambrecht, Malbrain, Coremans, Verbist, & Verhaegen, 1995; Le Guen, Gestin, Plat, Quehe, & Bressollette, 2011).
