Abstract

A 45-year-old woman presented with gross hematuria. She had previously undergone an aortobifemoral bypass that subsequently became infected. The infected graft was removed and replaced with homograft. An arterioureteric fistula was identified with angiography and the patient was treated with an iCast stent graft. Diagnosis of arterioureteric fistula should be suspected in patients with gross hematuria and associated risk factors. We would recommend angiography for diagnosis and simultaneous treatment with a stent graft, although the long-term durability and outcome is unknown.
