Abstract

We report a renal transplant patient with a functioning allograft who had an inferior vena cava (IVC) filter placed above the renal allograft vein. The patient occluded the IVC filter and developed extensive distal thrombosis. This included complete occlusion of the renal allograft vein (RAV). However, this complication did not lead to a loss of kidney transplant function. Alternate allograft venous drainage via capsular collaterals and subsequent recanalization of transplant vein were demonstrated.
