Partial nephrectomy via a laparoscopic approach can be technically challenging, and associated vascular complications such as pseudoaneurysm may occur. CT with CT angiography is ideal for the noninvasive imaging of this process. This article reports two cases of pseudoaneurysm of the renal artery detected on CT as a complication of laparoscopic partial nephrectomy and demonstrates the usefulness of 3-D CT angiography in the evaluation of vascular pathology.
