PURPOSE: To describe a new type of stent consisting of a 3-dimensional (3D) braided tube made of 2 interconnected layers without any covering to treat a renal artery aneurysm. CASE REPORT: A 78-year-old hypertensive man with multiple comorbidities was incidentally found to have a large (28- x 30 mm) saccular aneurysm in the main right renal artery involving the inferior renal artery. Via a percutaneous femoral approach, a 6- x 30-mm Multilayer stent was deployed easily in front of the aneurysm neck covering the inferior renal artery. Blood flow inside the sac was immediately and significantly reduced. All the renal artery branches remained patent. Blood pressure returned to normal after the procedure. At 6 months, angiography showed complete shrinkage of the aneurysm wall; all the inferior renal artery branches remained patent. CONCLUSION: The 3D multilayer fluid modulating stent concept appears to be a viable alternative for renal aneurysm exclusion. A larger study is underway to evaluate this new stent in other peripheral aneurysms.
