Abstract

Serious complications of shock wave lithotripsy (SWL) are rare, but can have significant long term effects. We present a case of acute renal vein thrombus following SWL leading to subsequent renal atrophy and loss of renal function. To our knowledge this is a newly reported complication of SWL.
