Abstract Endovascular treatment of an abdominal aortic aneurysm was undertaken in two orthotopic renal transplant recipients with US Food and Drug Administration-approved aortic stents without specific measures taken to protect the transplanted kidney. Renal function remained unchanged in both patients. Follow-up imaging studies showed successful aneurysm exclusion. Endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm treatment in renal transplant recipients does not appear to place the transplanted kidney at undue ischemic risk and may be the preferred approach in select patients.
