Between 1975 and 1985, 43 patients underwent simultaneous aortic and renal artery reconstruction. Twenty-two patients had infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysms and 21 had aortoiliac occlusive disease. In addition, 40 patients had severe lesions of one or both renal arteries and three patients had a lesion in an accessory renal artery. Hypertension was present in 29 patients, 15 of whom had impaired renal function. Four patients had chronic renal insufficiency without hypertension. Ten patients underwent prophylactic renal artery reconstruction. Infrarenal aortic repair was carried out simultaneously with thromboendarterectomy of one or both renal arteries, or reimplantation of a renal artery into the aorta, in two cases with contralateral nephrectomy. In one patient, the celiac and superior mesenteric arteries were also bypassed. Three patients (7%) died in the immediate postoperative period, two of these from myocardial infarction. Long-term survival was studied in 37 patients. Sixty-seven percent of patients with preoperative hypertension and less than 50% of those with preoperative renal insufficiency had good results.
