Background: A 63-year-old woman was admitted to the department of vascular surgery with abdominal angor and hypertension. Abdominal CT angiography revealed occlusion of the celic trunk and superior mesenteric trunk and severe stenosis on the left renal artery. Stenting of the left renal artery was successfully performed. One week after the procedure, the patient was admitted at the emergency department with severe abdominal pain, which began a few hours before admission.
