PMID:  20835894     Owner:  NLM     Status:  In-Data-Review    
BACKGROUND: Conventional open repair of inflammatory abdominal aortic aneurysms (IAAA) remains challenging through the presence of extensive peri-aortic inflammation and fibrosis which makes dissection and vascular control difficult with a risk of inadvertent injury to adjacent visceral structures such as the ureters, duodenum, inferior vena cava, left renal vein and sigmoid colon.
METHODS: We describe a case of a 69-year-old gentleman who presented with acute renal failure due to bilateral ureteric obstruction in association with an IAAA and discuss the various management options available.
CONCLUSION: IAAAs and the associated peri-aortic inflammation and fibrosis can be successfully treated using endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair with concurrent ureteric stenting.
