Abstract

Vascular complications following multivisceral transplantation is increasingly being reported in the literature. Among transplants, composite allografts are particularly at risk of developing pseudoaneurysms with or without a non-occlusive thrombus. Although historically open surgery was the only option in repair of pseudoaneurysms, the present day widespread adoption of endovascular techniques has significantly expanded our armamentarium. We present case of a patient with a hostile abdomen and pseudoaneurysm of the donor aorta that was excluded successfully following endovascular intervention.
