Özet

Takayasu arteritis is a disease that results in the granulomatous inflammation of large vessel walls. Takayasu arteritis is generally observed in young females during the second or third decades of life. This disease is treated by the revascularization of the affected organs either by surgery or by endovascular interventions. In this study, we present a case where renal autotransplantation was performed on a lady with an autologous saphenous vein graft subsequent to numerous previous endovascular interventions for her solitary kidney due to Takayasu arteritis-induced renal artery stenosis. The patient was prevented from becoming dialysis dependent through this surgical intervention. Renal autotrans-plantation is the choice of treatment, especially for those in whom endovascular interventions have failed. Patient management must include the partnership of an experienced vascular surgeon, transplant urologist, rheumatologist, nephrologist and radiologist. (c) 2017 S. Karger AG, Basel
