Abstract

Ureteral-arterial fistulas are rare causes of intermittent and often massive hematuria. We report the case of a patient presenting with massive hematuria and shock caused by a ureteral-iliac fistula initially treated with a covered endovascular stent graft. Eight months after deployment, the stent occluded, and the patient required a femoral-femoral bypass. This is the first known case of endovascular stent graft occlusion when used for this purpose.
