Neoaorta reconstruction using both femoral veins in a patient with secondary aortoenteric fistula


In situ reconstruction using femoral veins is emerging as one of the acceptable options for aortic reconstruction in patients with aortoduodenal fistula. We report a 35-year young male who presented with secondary aortoenteric fistula. His infected aortic graft was removed and was successfully managed by neo-aortic reconstruction, using both femoral veins in a \u27pantaloon\u27 fashion. He had smooth postoperative recovery and did not have graft re-infection. He did not show signs of chronic venous insufficiency on long-term follow-up
