Abstract: A renal transplant recipient presented in the early post-transplantation period with rupture of an abdominal aortic aneurysm. The high mortality rate of the surgical repair of ruptured aneurysm in addition to the concern of preserving the renal graft prompted us to seek alternative approaches, such as repairing the aneurysm by means of endovascular techniques. The ruptured aneurysm was confirmed by performing computed tomography and digital angiography and thereafter was successfully repaired by endovascular s… Show more

“…In patients with kidney transplants, a review of the literature shows that endovascular repair has been applied in 14 cases. [10][11][12][13][14][15][16][17][18][19][20][21] In all these patients, the aneurysm remained far from the anastomosis of the kidney artery and did not involve it. In one patient with a ruptured aneurysm, 20 emergency endovascular repair was performed.…”

“…The prevalence of abdominal aortic aneurysm in patients with renal transplant is 1.01 to 6.7%. De novo AAA develops in the transplant population in younger subjects and has faster enlargement, suggesting that haemodialysis length, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and steroid therapy may play a role (Kaskarelis et al, 2006;Lepäntalo et al, 1999). Multiple renal arteries are relatively frequent (15 to 30%), the incidence of a single additional renal artery is 23,2% and is more common on the left side (27,6%) and in males (33,1%) (Natsis et al, 2010).…”

“…Not surprisingly, these cases have included patients who are renal allograft recipients (Tables 1 and 2). [2][3][4][5][6][7][8][9][10][11][12][13][14][15][16] Despite the increasing wide acceptance of EVAR, not every case can be repaired with stent grafts; in fact, most of the published reports dealing with aneurysms in kidney transplant recipients described open surgical techniques for management (Tables 3 and 4). 2, We herein present a detailed review of our experience and also of the existing literature with regard to the surgical management of aortic aneurysms in renal transplant recipients.…”
