PMID:  16242569     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The phenomenon of antegrade (distal) endograft migration is an extensively documented complication after endovascular abdominal aortic aneurysm repair. This case report describes the finding of postoperative abdominal aortic aneurysm endograft retrograde (proximal) migration occluding bilateral renal arteries and leading to dialysis-dependent renal failure.
