In brief: Rare event
Renal infarction is the term for loss of blood supply to all or a portion of the kidney which then dies.
It is not a common event. It can be caused by atherosclerosis or more rarely, by blood clots lodging in the renal arteries. It can be a consequence of surgery on the abdominal aorta.
