Abstract

During resection of certain complicated aortic abdominal aneurysms, the circulation of the renal artery may require separate perfusion. To achieve this in a simplified manner, a heparin bonded shunt has been used for continuous perfusion of the kidney. This has been used in patients with a horseshoe kidney undergoing aortic aneurysmectomy, for intraoperative perfusion of a previously inserted saphenous vein to renal artery graft for renovascular hypertension and in simultaneous correction of an aortic aneurysm and insertion of a renal artery graft for hypertension. In each situation, the technique worked well with minimal heparinization and excellent results.
