Abstract

A 67-year-old man with pain in his right flank and hematuria over the last few weeks was admitted to our hospital due to right renal calculi revealed by an ultrasound examination of the urinary tract. An abdominal x-ray drew attention to the presence of structures of an uncertain interpretation, that mimicked multiple calculi in the right kidney and renal pelvis, but CT-scan identified a large saccular aneurysm of 76 mm with renal pelvis involvement and urinary statis of the right renal artery. A combined endovascular and laparoscopic surgical approach was chosen. The patient underwent endovascular embolization of the renal artery with an Amplatzer Vascular Plug followed by a video laparoscopic nephrectomy. After few days of hospitalization, the patient was in good general status and was discharged. A review of the literature has highlighted the unicity of our surgical approach, especially within the context of traditional vascular and general surgical practice, due to multidisciplinary consultation.
