False iliac artery aneurysm following renal transplantation

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

We report a very rare case of a false iliac artery aneurysm following renal transplantation. The patient was a 51-year-old women who presented with a painful 10 x 10 cm pulsating mass in her left iliac fossa. The patient had received a second cadaveric renal transplantation 5 years previously. The graft never functioned and transplant nephrectomy was performed 2 weeks later. A CT-scanning showed a 10 x 10 cm large aneurysm arising from the left external iliac artery. At operation a large false aneurysm was identified arising from the original transplant anastomotic site. Due to the extent of the aneurysms, a Gortex graft was inserted between the external iliac artery and the common femoral artery. The patient made an uneventful post-operative recovery.
