Abstract

A patient with a pseudoaneurysm of the distal abdominal aorta, which developed as the result of complicated gallstone pancreatitis, is reported. The aorta was bypassed with an axillofemoral-femorofemoral graft; the pseudoaneurysm was resected, and the infrarenal aorta was oversewn. The patient survived a complicated postoperative course and was discharged with well-perfused lower extremities. No previous description of a pseudoaneurysm of the aorta as a complication of pancreatitis was found on review of the literature.
