Pancreatic surgery concomitant with abdominal aortic repair is rarely chosen due to concerns about prosthetic infection following pancreatic leakage and the poor prognosis of pancreatic neoplasms. We herein report a successfully treated case of infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm and intraductal papillary mucinous neoplasms of the pancreas treated by a one-stage operation. A 75-year-old male with a history of cerebral infarction and chronic subdural hematoma was referred to our department with a pulsatile abdominal mass. A 70-mm infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm with severe proximal neck angulation and a 28-mm multilocular cystic tumor with mural nodules in the pancreas body were detected. Abdominal aortic repair with a prosthetic graft and distal pancreatectomy were performed simultaneously. The postoperative course was mostly uneventful, and he was discharged to a rehabilitation facility.
