In conclusion, AUF remains a rare but potentially lethal condition that clinicians should be aware of. Our experience shows that in patients with haematuria not otherwise explainable and previous history of vascular surgery with endovascular stent placement, the presence of an AUF should be suspected, especially if CT shows an extremity of the vascular stent laying in close proximity to the ureter.

Abstract

In conclusion, AUF remains a rare but potentially lethal condition that clinicians should be aware of. Our experience shows that in patients with haematuria not otherwise explainable and previous history of vascular surgery with endovascular stent placement, the presence of an AUF should be suspected, especially if CT shows an extremity of the vascular stent laying in close proximity to the ureter. The present study was carried out according to the 1964 Helsinki declaration and its later amendments or comparable ethical standards. Patient's written informed consent for treatment and publication was obtained. All anamnestic, clinical, and laboratory data containing sensitive information about the patient were de-identified in order to ensure analysis of anonymous data only.
