Abstract

The surgical reconstruction of intrahilar renal artery aneurysms (RAAs) is a difficult surgery because of complex anatomy. We present a case of right intrahilar RAA diagnosed in a 67-year-old man. We performed ex vivo reconstruction using an organ preservation solution to prevent postoperative renal failure. We assessed graft patency and blood perfusion was assessed by laser-assisted indocyanine green angiography using the SPY system after autotransplantation. Postoperative renal insufficiency was not observed. The results demonstrate that ex vivo reconstruction of intrahilar RAAs using an organ preservation solution, and graft patency and blood perfusion evaluation using the SPY system are effective methods for preserving renal function.
