AAA repair in renal transplant recipients has generated a variety of methods of managing the allograft. Endovascular techniques have been successfully employed in this patient population. Due to inherent limitations of present endovascular methods, occasional stent-graft excision must be performed. We present a case of aortic stent-graft excision in a renal transplant recipient using a pump-oxygenator to maintain allograft perfusion.
