Abstract: The internal iliac artery is less commonly used in renal transplantation in comparison to the external iliac artery due to its size and the risk of compromising distal vascular supply to the pelvis. We report a cadaveric renal transplant in which we performed a side-to-end anastomosis using the internal iliac artery. This technique can provide adequate perfusion to the transplant kidney without the associated risks and complications in the patient whose internal iliac artery is of a good diameter and quality.
