Abstract: Deep infection remains the most problematic complication following prosthetic aortoiliofemoral reconstruction. Prosthetic excision and extra-anatomic revascularization is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. The possibilities of autogenous reconstruction are frequently limited. The authors present a patient with recurrent aortic infection who was successfully treated by prosthetic excision and revascularization in situ with a cryopreserved arterial homograft.
