Abstract

Aortic occlusion usually occurs in the infrarenal abdominal aorta while occlusion of the suprarenal aorta is much less common. The clinical presentation may vary from limb ischemia, neurologic symptoms of the lower extremities, abdominal symptoms, renal failure, and resistant hypertension (HTN). We present a case of suprarenal aortic occlusion presenting with renal failure and resistant HTN but without lower limb ischemia.
