Abstract Renal vein thrombosis (RVT) is the most common noncatheter-related thrombosis encountered in infancy, most of which occurs in neonates. The optimal management strategy for neonatal RVT is unclear. Fibrinolytic and heparin therapy may play a role in preventing chronic renal failure in neonates with bilateral RVT. However, the use of fibrinolytics early after any major surgery requires tremendous caution. In this report, we describe the successful use of fibrinolysis in a neonate with bilateral RVT after repair of truncus arteriosus in the early postoperative period.
