abstract

  • Aortic prosthetic graft infection secondary to a ruptured abdominal viscus has rarely been reported. A patient with aortobifemoral graft infection secondary to a diverticular abscess is presented. Colostomy, drainage of the abdominal abscess, hyperalimentation, and extra-anatomic bypass with excision of the infected graft were utilized in the successful management of this unusual case.
