Renal Transplant Dysfunction due to Severe Aorto-Iliac Atherosclerosis in the Presence of Patent Renal Transplant Artery Academic Article uri icon


  • We report a case of progressive deterioration in renal function and decreased renal graft perfusion induced by extensive aorto-iliac atherosclerotic lesions proximal to a patent renal graft artery. Significant improvement in kidney graft function followed left axillo-femoral bypass graft surgery, which to the best of our knowledge, has never been performed previously for permanent maintenance of renal transplant perfusion.
