We present the case of post-traumatic bilateral renal artery injury with renal perfusion disorder, successfully treated by endovascular treatment. This therapeutic approach avoided the need for long-term dialysis by maintaining a sufficient renal function. This case is an illustration of the feasibility and the efficiency of endovascular treatment in severe post-traumatic renal artery lesions.
