A 68-year-old woman with a left renal artery aneurysm underwent successful endovascular repair with the use of a commercial type self-expanding stent-graft. Complete aneurysm exclusion was achieved after stent-graft expansion. A side branch vessel was occluded after stent-placement, resulting in a small upper lobe renal perfusion defect. There were no other complications. The aneurysm remained excluded and its greatest diameter has been reduced from 2.6 cm to 1.95 cm, 10 months after treatment. Renal function remained normal.
