A 66-year-old woman underwent right radical nephrectomy in January 2005. In May 2015 she came to a cardiology consultation presenting with anasarca and an abdominal murmur. An abdominal tomography scan was done and an arteriovenous fistula involving the right renal artery and the vena cava was diagnosed. The hemodynamics specialist ruled out endovascular treatment and the patient was referred to our urology service.
