Received Date: Jun 26, 2017 / Accepted Date: Aug 24, 2017 / Published Date: Sep 01, 2016
Authors report a case of transplant renal artery aneurysm. The aneurysm developed within three months of living unrelated kidney transplantation surgery. The aneurysm involved origin of the transplant renal artery proximally and extended up to its bifurcation. The aneurysm was not amenable to endovascular corrective approach. Surgical resection of the aneurysm was carried out; renal arteries were repaired and re-anastomosed with the right iliac artery. Allograft function recovered after a brief period of acute kidney injury. His kidney function remains stable one year post transplant renal artery repair. A brief review of literature related to the etiology and management of such cases is presented.
