PMID:  835984     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
While resection with grafting is now the operation of choice for the treatment of abdominal aortic aneurysms there is still a need for a less traumatic procedure suitable for the elderly, poor-risk patient. Such a technique is described, the aneurysm being mobilized and wrapped in a double sheet of Marlex mesh. Two illustrative cases are reported with survival for 3 years and 2 1/4 years respectively.
