Abstract

Donor and recipient artery problems are challenging complications in renal transplant patients. In this report, we present our treatment strategy in a 42-year-old renal transplant case with renal artery stenosis and a giant pseudoaneurysm at the anastomotic site. Open repair failed due to extreme adhesions. However, the patient was managed successfully using the hybrid approach with iliofemoral bypass and stent graft implantation to the renal artery, providing retrograde renal artery perfusion.
