[Abdominal aortic aneurysm associated with non-neoplastic abdominal disease. Therapeutic approach].

Abstract

BACKGROUND Personal experience concerning the treatment of 8 patients with infrarenal aortic aneurysms associated with extravascular non-neoplastic abdominal diseases is presented. METHODS AND RESULTS In all 7 cases which underwent combined surgical procedures (aneury-smectomy + cholecystectomy in 4 patients and aneurysmectomy + groin hernia repair in 3 patients) early and late postoperative complications were not recorded. CONCLUSIONS The main therapeutic guidelines concerning the pathologic association of infrarenal aortic aneurysms associated with extravascular non-neoplastic abdominal diseases are discussed on the basis of a literature review and of personal experience.
