Six cases of renal bleeding which were successfully treated by transcatheter embolization with autologous clot are described and illustrated. The problems of clot lysis and consequent vessel recanalization are discussed both from an experimental and clinical point of view. It is concluded that clot embolization is suitable treatment for renal bleeding and, in selected cases, is preferable to open surgery.
