PMID:  17532434     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
We report an extremely rare case of saccular thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysm associated with high abdominal aortic occlusion including the superior mesenteric and bilateral renal arteries in a patient requiring hemodialysis. Successful repair of the aneurysm and concomitant revascularization of the lower extremities was achieved using femoro-femoral bypass for perfusion of the lower body along with the visceral and intercostal arteries.
