PMID:  14524586     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A 30-year-old female presented with uncontrolled hypertension due to arteriovenous malformation in the upper third of the right kidney, which worsened during pregnancy. The arteriovenous malformation was detected by color-coded Doppler sonography, confirmed by angiography, and the fistula was sealed by superselective arterial embolization with metallic coils. Superselective embolization is the most effective and safe treatment for this rare and complex pathology.
