Abstract

Background: True renal artery aneurysms (TRAA) are an uncommon pathology, with a prevalence of less than 1%. Treatment of TRAAs is generally recommended when the aneurysm sac equals or exceeds 2cms. Both wide-necked and main renal artery branch aneurysms represent a challenge for conventional endovascular coil embolization due to the risk of coil migration. Main body: Intra-procedural remodeling of the aneurysm neck using Balloon Assisted Coil Embolization (BACE) is considered a suitable alternative in challenging cases of visceral artery aneurysms. Short Conclusion: We describe the novel use of the Scepter C (MicroVention Terumo, Tustin, CA) compliant double lumen neurovascular occlusion balloon in the treatment of a wide-necked branch TRAA in a patient with a solitary kidney.
