Title: Renal Artery Embolization Controls Intractable Pain in a Patient with Polycystic Kidney Disease

Abstract

A 65-year-old man with adult polycystic kidney disease (APKD) and chronic renal failure suffered from intractable abdominal pain and distension for 2 weeks. Meperidine infusion did not alleviate his pain. However, pain and abdominal distension were successfully controlled by embolization of both renal arteries.
