The ­authors ­report a ­case of abdom­i­nal aor­tic aneu­rysm (AAA) in a ­patient ­with a ­renal trans­plant dat­ing ­back a num­ber of ­years, locat­ed in an ­iliac fos­sa and ­still ­well func­tion­ing. The oper­a­tion was car­ried out ­using a fem­o­rof­e­mo­ral ­shunt ­with ­pump oxy­gen­a­tor as a ­means of pro­tect­ing the trans­plant­ed kid­ney. The ­authors ­also eval­u­ate oth­er meth­ods of pro­tect­ing ­renal ­graft per­fu­sion report­ed in the lit­er­a­ture.
