Abstract

Major complications after renal biopsy are those that don’t resolve spontaneously and are in need of an intervention (blood transfusion, angiography, cystoscopy, etc.). They occur in only 6,4% of the cases and include massive hematuria, hematoma, arteriovenous fistula, renal obstruction, acute renal failure, hemoglobin drop or septicemia.
