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.
