AbstractHorseshoe kidney may cause technical and access problems during open aortic aneurysm repair. The aim of this study is to report two cases from our institution and to review the world's literature on successful endovascular infrarenal aneurysm repair in patients with horseshoe kidneys. A retrospective review of a prospectively entered departmental computerized database was performed for the two patients from our institution. Articles were searched electronically from PubMed and Medline, using the terms 'horseshoe kidney' and 'aneurysm'. Endovascular cases were reviewed from the world's literature. In addition to the two patients from our institution, there were 19 patients with infrarenal aneurysms and horseshoe kidneys in published literature who underwent successful endovascular aneurysm repair. The occlusion of lower-pole or accessory renal arteries does not seem to cause significant endoleak or renal impairment in the long run. In conclusion, our experience and current literature seem to suggest that endovascular repair of infrarenal aortic aneurysms for patients with horseshoe kidneys is safe. Renal impairment will depend on the area of kidney perfused by the accessory renal arteries. The endovascular treatment option is less invasive than open repair, and circumvents the problem of difficult exposure, especially in those patients with significant co-morbidity. © 2011 Royal Society of Medicine Press.
