Even with a large excision, extensive debridement, in situ or extra-anatomical reconstruction, and with or without lifelong antibiotic treatment, mycotic aneurysms still carry very high mortality and morbidity. The use of endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) for mycotic aortic aneurysms simplifies the procedure and provides a good alternative for this critical condition.
