We report the case of a 76-year-old man of the Jehovah's Witness faith who had a giant abdominal aortoiliac aneurysm that was successfully operated on using an aortoiliac Y-graft bypass technique, without the use of stored allogenic blood. Cell saver technique and recombinant human erythropoietin (epoetin beta) were used during the perioperative period. The patient had good postoperative care with a multidisciplinary approach.

Giant iliac artery aneurysm
TLDR
The case of an 84-year-old man with giant iliac artery aneuryms who was treated successfully by aneurysmectomy and aortoiliac bypass is reported here.
Endovascular repair of a complex giant infrarenal abdominal aortic aneurysm
TLDR
An infrarenal saccular giant aortic aneurysm (measuring 25 cm in transverse diameter), which was treated with endovascular repair, with immediate technical success, is reported.

Giant abdominal aortic aneurysms
Giant Abdominal Aortic Aneurysms
TLDR
Due to anatomic limitation with currently available aortic endografts, giant AAAs have been traditionally repaired using a standard open surgical approach and the feasibility of endovascular aortIC aneurysm repair (EVAR) with or without the use of adjunct techniques, including snorkel/chimney or fenestrated EVAR, has yet to be elucidated.

TLDR
The authors described in detail the features of the choice of surgical access, the technique for isolating the aneurysm neck with a detailed analysis of the further course of the operation, and the outcomes of interventions in the context of the results of the own observations.

TLDR
A Jehovah's Witness patient who survived emergency repair of a leaking abdominal aortic aneurysm is described who expressed a wish not to be given blood and this was respected.

TLDR
A successful repair of a ruptured giant AAA eroding into the vertebral column in a one-hundred-ten-year-old patient is described, likely to be the oldest case reported in the literature with successful outcome.
Ruptured Aneurysm of the Infrarenal Abdominal Aorta: Impact of Age and Postoperative Complications on Mortality
TLDR
It is shown that optimizing the operative protocol decreases mortality related to RAAA, and the main predictor of POM1 was hemodynamic status while the main predictors of Pom3 was infection.

The Effects of Recombinant Human Erythropoietin on Perioperative Transfusion Requirements in Patients Having a Major Orthopaedic Operation
TLDR
It is suggested that recombinant human erythropoietin, administered before and after major orthopaedic operations, can minimize the need for homologous red-blood-cell transfusion.

Study of five cell salvage machines in coronary artery surgery
TLDR
Cell savers are a valuable adjunct to coronary artery surgery, but careful monitoring of coagulation is required when the volumes of either bank blood or salvaged blood are large.
