Abstract

Renal artery aneurysms are rare vascular anomalies in which rupture is associated with devastating consequences. Only a few reported cases involved percutaneous treatment. Recently, technological advances have expanded indications for percutaneous treatment of such complex peripheral lesions. Despite this, certain anatomical settings such as extreme vessel tortuosity or angulation of the afferent vessel continue to pose challenges. New steerable devices may play a crucial role in those cases where conventional techniques have failed. We report a case of successful percutaneous treatment of a renal artery aneurysm and stenosis in a young male using the Venture™ catheter.
