Despite recent advances, post-renal transplant vascular complication rate remains stable. We report a case of a 55-year-old male, chronic smoker with extensive atherosclerotic disease who underwent right orthotopic live related renal transplantation. On 6th post-operative day, the patient had sudden drop in urine output and graft site pain and found to have acute anastomotic transplant renal artery stenosis (TRAS), which was managed successfully with percutaneous angioplasty (PA) and stenting. His post-operative course was uneventful and has normal renal functions at 6 months post-transplant period.
