PMID:  15797104     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
In patients with infective aortic false aneurysms, repair using artificial materials is in danger of becoming an additional focus for infection. We used harvested autologous fascia lata as a vascular patch in such operations on 2 patients with infected mediastinal false aneurysm after coronary artery bypass surgery. These patients have not had any recurrences of mediastinitis and false aneurysm for 4 to 6 years after the operations.
