Acute suprarenal aortic occlusion, though rarely reported carries a high morbidity and mortality. Renal ischemia is one of the usual presenting features. Limb salvage and renal preservation depend on prompt diagnosis and management. A young patient with acute suprarenal aortic occlusion having renal failure and limb ischemia was managed with suprarenal thrombectomy and aortobifemoral bypass at our centre. Even though the presentation was delayed, renal functions were restored post procedure. This case highlights that renal revascularisation can be attempted in select cases with delayed presentation.
