PURPOSE: Detection of cancer in patients with AAA complicates the treatment of both diseases. AAA associated with RN are rare, with an incidence of 0.1-3% representing a challenge in defining the surgical timing and approach. We discuss the rational for the treatment in patients with concomitant patologies.
CASE REPORT: A 65 years-old man was diagnosed with both AAA and Renal Cell Carcinoma. The patient underwent first EVAR followed by renal embolization and Radical Nefrectomy. Three months later a Type II Endoleak was diagnosed and treated successfully. At 1 year follow-up the patient is disease free with complete exclusion of aneurysm sac.
CONCLUSION: AAA can be successfully repaired in patients with renal neoplasm with great results, either simultaneously or in two stages. EVAR is a good alternative for such complex patients.
