Multiple infarcts (areas outlined in yellow) occurred in this kidney!

Renal infarcts are generally due to a thromboembolic event, a possible complication of cardiovascular surgery or interventional procedures performed on the left side of the heart or supra-renal aorta. It is rarely possible to observe the thrombus (*) that caused the infarct in the histologic sections.
