This article discusses injuries to the abdominal aorta at its supra-and infrarenal positions, focusing on the surgical approaches to abdominal aorta injuries and renal vascular pedicles. The controversy regarding the use of bioprosthetic materials and the collective experience with these injuries as reported in the literature are reviewed. Primary renal artery repair versus nephrectomy also is examined.
