Temporary Prosthetic Shunt to Permanent Aortic Prosthesis in a Patient with an Infected Thoracoabdominal Aneurysm to Shorten Ischemia Time

Abstract

High operative mortality of infected thoracoabdominal aortic aneurysms (ITAA) is partly attributable to ischemic injury during aortic clamping. We report a 62-year-old man with biliary cirrhosis, who developed a rapidly enlarging ITAA secondary to thoracolumbar osteomyelitis.
