Journal of Surgical Case Reports
Renal allograft strangulation is a rare complication following simultaneous kidney pancreas transplant, often causing graft loss. This case report represents the first documented case of a 35-year-old female who developed renal graft strangulation around the left fallopian tube. Our case outlines a new complication that contributes to graft loss concerning iliac fossa anatomy and variations in female patients, as well as surgical considerations that need to be made prior to transplantation. We recommend measurement of the grafted renal vessels within the iliac fossa and respective surroundings structures to allow for the ideal positioning of the grafted organ.
