Abdominal aortic reconstruction combined with colon or urinary tract operations is generally not acceptable because of a supposed greater incidence of graft infection. Similar fears exist regarding aortic reconstruction in the presence of colostomies, ileostomies, and permanent urinary diversion stomata. In fact, the presence of a colostomy has been reported to be a contraindication for abdominal aortic reconstruction. This report is concerned with vascular operations in 13 such patients with aortic disease referred to us for fear of these complications. Eleven patients had abdominal aortic aneurysms and two had atherosclerotic occlusion of the aorta and iliac arteries. Twelve patients had colostomies, ileostomies, or both and one patient had permanent tube cystostomy. All had good renal function and the disease for which the diversion procedure was performed was either cured or under good control. All patients survived the vascular reconstructive procedures without significant complications and long-term follow-up revealed that late graft infection did not occur.
