Abstract

The authors report a patient who presented with a ruptured mycotic aneurysm that destroyed the posterior segment of the suprarenal perimesenteric aorta. Initial in-line repair with a rifampin-soaked Dacron prosthetic patch failed 14 days postoperatively with recurrent hemorrhage. At reoperation, the aorta was repaired with a superficial femoral/popliteal vein interposition graft; a segment of superficial femoral/popliteal vein was also used in-line to revascularize the superior mesenteric and celiac arteries. The patient survived with no evidence of recurrence at 8 months postoperatively.
