PMID:  753484     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
The clinical presentations of 3 patients found to have an abdominal aortic aneurysm with ureteric involvement have been described. The world literature concerning this problem and methods of surgical treatment have been reviewed. The importance of medial displacement of the ureters as an early diagnostic sign indicating the presence of an abdominal aortic aneurysm is again emphasised. The possibility of a relatively benign course for the aneurysm should be considered in patients with renal or cardiorespiratory complications. In such cases, treatment of the ureteric involvement alone is justified.
