Renal transplantation is the best treatment for end-stage renal disease. Vascular complications of renal transplantation can be hazardous. Bleeding from the anastomotic site in external iliac artery is a nightmare for kidney transplant surgeons. Ligation of the external iliac artery might possibly lead to the loss of the lower limbs. We present two cases of postallograft nephrectomy bleeding, in which the external iliac artery was ligated without consequent ischemia.
