A case of post-traumatic aneurysm of the abdominal aorta is reported. The incidence of post-traumatic aneurysms of the abdominal aorta is very low. Technical details of the surgical approach are presented together with the warning of a careful follow-up of the patients after blunt abdominal trauma.

    Aneurysms of the abdominal aorta enlarge until rupture occurs. We assume that this is the result of remodelling to restore wall stress. We developed a numerical model to predict aneurysm expansion based on this assumption. In addition, we obtained aneurysm geometry of 11 patients from computed...
