Interventional radiology is one of the fastest growing branches of medicine. Successful interventional radiology started in Egypt in 1982 by dilating narrow arterial segments using balloon catheters. There are three domains in nephrology in which the interventional radiologist can help: a) The renal fossa, b) The renal graft complications, and c) The malfunctioning hemodialysis blood access. In this report, there will be a review of the clinical application of the different radiological procedures that include our own experience. The interventional radiology in the renal fossa includes the following procedures: renal artery dilatation and renal artery embolization. The interventional radiology in the management of renal transplant complications includes: graft artery stenosis, arterio-venous fistulas, drainage of lymphocele and ablation of native kidneys. The interventional radiology can be very helpful in the correction of the malfunctioning hemodialysis shunts besides the insertion of temporary hemodialysis catheter.
