Publication/Presentation Date

9-1991

Abstract

This patient's course documents the successful repair of an abdominal aor tic aneurysm in a sixty-two-year-old man with Marfan's syndrome. Marfan's syndrome, a connective tissue disorder, is commonly associated with cardiovas cular complications, including ascending aortic aneurysms and dissecting aneurysms of the thoracic aorta with aortic insufficiency. Abdominal aortic aneurysms, are, however, rare. Although this procedure can be hazardous in patients with Marfan's syndrome, the authors encountered no significant com plications with their patient, who was doing well twenty-one months postopera tively.
