There are only 18 patients described in the English literature who had a preexisting renal transplant and underwent aortic surgery for aortoiliac occlusive disease. We describe an additional patient who was treated with a new technique using a Sundt shunt and a GraftAssist. This technique provides antegrade flow and minimal ischemic time and avoids exploration of arteries not involved in the anastomosis.
