Abstract

Renal artery pseudoaneurysm (RAP) is an uncommon complication following an open partial nephrectomy. We present a case of RAP diagnosed four and a half months following open partial nephrectomy for renal cell carcinoma. RAP was managed by selective angiographic embolization using coils. The etiology and management of this potentially life-threatening condition is discussed.
