Abstract:

The detection of renal artery aneurysms has increased with the expanded utilization of cross sectional imaging. Although these lesions have traditionally been treated with surgery, endovascular therapy has emerged as a viable treatment option both in the emergent and the elective settings. We describe the CT and angiographic findings of a large ruptured renal artery aneurysm and its successful endovascular treatment with stent-grafts in the emergent setting. Our clinical and technical success under emergent conditions supports treatment of renal artery aneurysms with stent placement in the elective setting.
