Aortic surgery in recipients of renal transplants requires a method of maintaining intraoperative graft perfusion. A case is presented in which a temporary shunt from the suprarenal aorta to the ipsilateral common femoral artery was used to perfuse a renal transplant during aortoiliac aneurysmectomy. Other methods of renal graft perfusion are discussed.
