The management of simultaneously occurring abdominal aortic aneurysm and malignancy is controversial. It is unclear whether to treat the aneurysm first or the malignancy, or both simultaneously. If the malignancy is resected first there is a risk of postoperative rupture of the aneurysm. If simultaneous surgery is performed there is a risk of prosthetic graft infection.

Abstract

The management of simultaneously occurring abdominal aortic aneurysm and malignancy is controversial. It is unclear whether to treat the aneurysm first or the malignancy, or both simultaneously. If the malignancy is resected first there is a risk of postoperative rupture of the aneurysm. If simultaneous surgery is performed there is a risk of prosthetic graft infection. This condition leads to many therapeutic problems which, by the light of 18 personal cases occurred in almost ten years and the recent literature, are discussed in this paper.
