Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is the formation of a clot or thrombus obstructing the renal vein, leading to a reduction in drainage of the kidney.



This thrombosis can lead to imbalances in blood clotting factor. Its symptoms may include blood in urine or being diminished in volume.


CT angiography can be used in diagnosis.[1]


Surgery to remove the clot is possible, but rarely performed.

Anticoagulation therapy can have some benefits.[2]
