Abstract/OtherAbstract:
When one is faced with impending rupture, repair of an aortic aneurysm cannot be delayed. In the presence of coexisting intra-abdominal sepsis, traditional therapy would call for aneurysm exclusion and axillofemoral bypass grafting. Consequences of this choice of treatment include limited long-term graft patency and recurrent prosthetic infection. Autogenous deep veins from the lower extremities have demonstrated exceptional patency and resilience to infection when used to replace infected aortic grafts. We now report a case of concomitant open drainage of a pancreatic abscess and repair of a saccular abdominal aortic aneurysm using the superficial femoral-popliteal vein as a conduit.
