Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present extremely rare case of 77-year old woman with free floating thrombus (FFT) in abdominal aorta obliterating superior mesenteric and right renal artery. The patient developed acute renal dysfunction. FFT was entirely removed surgically from aorta, renal arteries and celiac arteries obtaining good outflows. Appropriate treatment based on in-depth patient’s condition evaluation prevented severe, potentially fatal complications.
