With extended indications for renal transplantation and increasing survival, it can be expected that atherosclerotic vascular disease in the post-transplant patient will become more frequent. The authors report a case of a ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysm in a renal transplant recipient. A temporary axillo-femoral shunt was used to maintain perfusion of the renal graft during aortic cross-clamping. They review the literature and discuss the available methods for preserving renal function.
