Abstract
We present a case of stent-assisted coil embolization of a wide-necked renal artery aneurysm performed at our institution. The technique involved a stent being delivered over the neck of the aneurysm. Subsequently a catheter was placed into the aneurysm through the stent mesh and the aneurysm was then filled with detachable coils. Complete aneurysm occlusion was obtained and there was no evidence to suggest renal infarction on a follow-up contrast CT scan 6 months later. Our preliminary experience suggests that stent-assisted coil embolization of wide-necked renal artery aneurysms is a technically challenging but potentially effective renal-sparing endovascular approach.
