Abstract

Complications other than rupture occurred in 12 per cent of 254 patients operated on for an infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm. The unusual problems encountered included aortocaval fistula, inflammatory aneurysm, aortoenteric fistula, aortic thrombosis, peripheral embolization, and retropsoas rupture. The clinical manifestations and management of these lesions are discussed.
