Abstract Surgical removal of a failed kidney graft may lead to a variety of postoperative complications, development of an aneurysm being a relatively rare complication. We report the case of a 34-year-old man who developed an iliac aneurysm 13 years after transplant nephrectomy. Interventional stenting was performed upon the rupture of the aneurysm. Postintervention the function of the contralateral transplanted kidney was stable and the patient recovered. An endoleak was diagnosed after 1 week, which was also stented. No operative procedure was necessary. In conclusion, even in an emergency situation interventional stenting of a false iliac aneurysm after transplant nephrectomy may be a therapeutic option.
