The report of the first successful resection of an abdominal aortic aneurysm, carried out in Paris in 1951, greatly influenced surgeons throughout the world who, until then, had regarded such an operation as probably being outside the bounds of surgical removal and vascular reconstruction. I well remember as a young surgeon reading of attempts to control such aneurysms by wrapping them in cellophane, or introducing coils of wire into them to induce thrombosis and I was familiar with having to stand by hopelessly as patients exsanguinated when their aneurysms ruptured.
