Placement of an aortic wallstent for treatment of an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) is a frequent therapeutic measure. Whereas AAA is known to mimic renal colic, aortic wallstent dislocation is a novel diagnostic problem. Herein, we report the first case of a patient with a dislocated aortic wallstent and subsequent aneurysm rupture and discuss appropriate diagnostic measures.
