Abstract

Uretero-arterial fistula (UAF) is a rare complication of either aneurysmal disease primarily or pelvic inflammation secondary to urologic, oncologic, or vascular interventions. Diagnosis can be difficult to confirm and treatment may need to proceed on high index of suspicion alone. We present the case of a 56-year-old woman suffering from intermittent hematuria after laser lithotripsy leading to UAF between her left ureter and left Dacron aortobifemoral bypass limb. The fistula was successfully treated with endovascular intervention.
