  • Nephrectomy: A Case Study

    reconstruction of the renal artery). However, the alternative approach of angiographic embolization has become, in recent years, better known (Prabulos AM et al. 1997). Majority of RAA ruptures usually occur in the third trimester and have left-sided predominance (Cohen et al. 1987; Hwang et al. 2011). This increased third-trimester risk is believed to be the result of: (1) expanded intravascular volume and increased BP, (2) increased intra-abdominal pressure, and (3) weakened structure of the major arteries following increased steroid production (Nakayama et al. 2013). Moreover, the physiological clockwise–rotation of the enlarged gravid uterus may compress the aorta and the right renal artery, thus increasing pressure on the left renal artery. To our knowledge, there are only two English papers describing cases of ruptured RAA in the first trimester of pregnancy (Whiteley et al. 1994; Meabed et al. 2002). RAA rupture in the first trimester of pregnancy remains unclear. Meabed et al. (2002) argued that repeated pregnancies produce irreversible vessel wall damage, which promotes a rapid increase in aneurysm size, subsequently causing rupture. Our case, however, was a primigravida at 8 weeks’ gestation. Davison et al. (1980) suggested that renal plasma flow and glomerular filtration rate of pregnant women in the first trimester rapidly increase to about 30-50% above the non-pregnant level; thus, increased blood flow to the kidneys may increase the pressure in the arteries,…
